Dark Knight Rises Prologue: Can You Understand What Bane Is Saying?

Over the weekend, a six-minute clip from Christopher Nolan's closely guarded Dark Knight Rises debuted before screenings of Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol. As it is 2011, that prologue has now made its way online in bootleg form, giving us a first look at Tom Hardy's rumored-to-be-unintelligible Bane. To be fair, the video is very low-quality, and Bane is presumably not intended to be a sparkling orator, but: Yeah, we can't hear anything beyond "what matters is the plan." Once Bane's awesome (even on this tiny screen!) plane-dismantling plan is revealed, though, it's hard to argue with that statement.

But that's not all the leaked Dark Knight footage floating around. Below is a new full-length trailer, now with actual plot points (Anne Hathaway, sans Catwoman ears, threatens to pull an OWS on Bruce Wayne; there's also some political intrigue involving James Gordon). Also on hand: Bane beating the holy hell out of people in the street; Christian Bale looking sweaty; angry protesters (not from Zuccotti Park, in the end); and an explanation as to how the Pittsburgh Steelers came to be involved in all this drama.  To get blown up, obviously.
