... basketball? Yup, the first official TV spot for The Dark Knight Rises arrived last night during the NBA Playoffs, and with it also came a teaser for the NBA playoffs as footage from the film was mixed with footage of NBA players slam-dunking the ball. This isn't the first time we've seen professional sports combine their own promos with a film coming out, and it definitely won't be the last. Don't expect any earth-shattering footage here either, as most of what's featured in this TV spot has already made its way into other trailers.
Still, seeing a TV spot for The Dark Knight Rises reminds us that we're only two months away from finally getting to watch Christopher Nolan's final Batman installment. Are you counting down the seconds? We are. (Seriously, we have several Batman clocks on our desks counting down the seconds until this one hits theaters on July 20th. There's nothing weird about that, right?)
Check it out below. Expect more to arrive throughout the remainder of the playoffs.
