I've received some intel with a very well-placed industry source (and longtime "Friend of BOF") that what I published this past Wednesday (April 18th) is true: The final trailer for THE DARK KNIGHT RISES
will be attached to THE AVENGERS
. Not only that, but it will be attached to all versions of the film -- 2D/3D conventional showings and 2D/3D IMAX showings.
I've heard this for a while now, but I was not comfortable enough (for a variety of reasons) to report it here on BOF until very recently. To be honest, I really thought it would end up being attached to DARK SHADOWS starting on May 11th, but I guess my industry friends were on the money and I was wrong. Anyway, remember WHERE you heard it first!
By the way, I'm seeing THE AVENGERS next week I believe, so be looking for my review around the first of May! Hopefully they'll show the RISES trailer too!
UPDATE! DEADLINE.COM has gotten confirmation from Warner Bros. that the trailer for RISES will indeed be attached to THE AVENGERS. Told y'all! ;)
THE DARK KNIGHT RISES -- starring Christian Bale, Tom Hardy, Anne Hathaway, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Marion Cotillard -- hits theaters on JULY 20, 2012!
