The Dark Knight Rises: New Images And More Of Hans Zimmer’s Soundtrack

The Dark Knight Rises is almost here and the wait is getting harder to take. Luckily, to help alleviate the pain, a few new images from the movie have been released, thanks to Indie Wire.

While we don’t see anymore of in-costume Batman or Bane, there’s more from the supporting cast this time as well as a cool behind-the-scenes pic of Christian Bale talking to director Christopher Nolan. There’s also a shot of Lucius Fox and another of a tumbler firing into the crowd.

You can also see Officer John Blake and Commissioner Jim Gordon standing together while staring at something in awe. My guess would be that it’s either Catwoman (pictured above) or Miranda Tate as they both look sexy and stunning here in these pictures. It should also be noted that besides a few quick shots in the trailers, this is the first real official image we’ve seen of Marion Cotillard‘s character. My favorite picture, though, is seeing Nolan draw the bat symbols on the wall rather than let someone else do it.

We also have a 24 minute sample of  soundtrack for the film, as someone decided to put all the different samples together. The result? An excellent tease. Zimmer’s score for the Batman films is one of the many things that make The Dark Knight series as great as it is and it looks like he will be bringing back his A-game for Nolan’s third outing with the Caped Crusader.

The Dark Knight Rises opens in theaters on July 20, 2012.
