July can't seem to come soon enough for those of us anxiously awaiting the release of The Dark Knight Rises. Fortunately, some kind soul was nice enough to bootleg an amazing two minute trailer of the final installment of Christopher Nolan's Batman franchise. Shortly afterwards, Warner Bros. gave in and released the HD version (below).

The trailer provides a glimpse of Gotham in its newfound state of peace – but there's a storm brewing, warns Anne Hathaway's Catwoman. The trailer builds up to Bane's attack on a football stadium and the return of Batman. The Dark Knight Rises won't hit theaters until July 20, 2012, but you can catch another glimpse playing before certain IMAX screenings of Mission:Impossible – Ghost Protocol.

Watch the trailer here:

    I've never been a huge Batman fan, but it's impossible not get excited about Nolan's take on the franchise.

    The movies got pretty terrible after Burton left, but Nolan has done quite an amazing job bringing it back.
