New Dark Knight Rises trailer to air during England Vs France


The Dark Knight Rises UK Facebook page has just posted a cryptic status update that will be exciting for football and film fans alike.

The update was a series of numbers - 11.06.12 17.45 - or, to be more precise, half-time of the Euro 2012 game between England and France.

So, unless the Dark Knight Rises UK Facebook account is really, really excited about watching the latest Petis Filous advert, we predict that there'll be a new trailer running in-between Adrian Chiles blathering on about how low-expectations means that England will definitely, definitely win Euro 2012.

And, considering the build-up, we wouldn't be surprised if the whole ad-break was dedicated to The Dark Knight Rises . Which would make a change from those five-second Rises stings which have started to appear on the commercial channels.

They're obviously ridiculously cool, but we're not sure if we can handle any more teasing. We can't remember ever being this excited about a film.

Anyway, tune into England Vs France to see the Fire Rise. And the French dive. Probably.
