Batman's live action trailer is a bit... Hmm

While just like M People suggested, we should all search for the Batman inside ourselves on a daily basis, the new live action trailer for Batman Arkham Knight suggests that behaving like the Caped Crusader will probably just get you killed. Yet more proof that live action trailers are just a bit weird, watching these normal joes put on a broody fighting face has a cheddar content that makes Batman and Robin look like the Dark Knight.

Just to make matters worse, nobody even has an excuse. The trailer was made by Tim Cronenweth and Jeff Cronenweth, one of whom was the director of photography on Gone Girl, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and Fight Club. Plus, the music comes from none other than Trent Reznor with some added Nine Inch Nails. Clearly these guys weren't having a Batman day.

But hey, there's no need to be too serious, only four weeks to go...
