People, people, this is a teaser. It’s meant to, you know, tease and allure you. Not that this final installment of Christopher Nolan’s disarming Batman trilogy needs any help, but still.
And if people aren’t bitching, then they’re scrutinizing. MTV, Entertainment Weekly, and countless blogs are taking the time to analyze every frame of the teaser. That’s a lot of work for something that lasts roughly a minute and a half.
Sure, the teaser for Batman Begins showed a little more than its successors, because the filmmakers were actually trying to convince people that their comic book movie was going to be different. It was, which explains why The Dark Knight teaser was so ominous, and showed virtually nothing.
In short, let’s all just hold our horses and not get all wound up over a messily trailer. We’ve got a year to go, people.
