With the release of The Dark Knight Rises mere weeks away, The Daily Zombies take a close look at several items coming out from Warner Bros. Pictures's aggressive promotional campaign for the film.

While there is no doubt that we have been covering The Dark Knight Rises, Christopher Nolan's swan song to his epic Batman trilogy, like a raving lunatic religious fanatic, do be assured that there will be more to come at this late juncture of time as we finally enter the last stretch of anticipation for the most anticipated film of the year.

First up, we take a look at a brand-new trailer, courtesy of Nokia, who have collaborated with Warner Bros. Pictures for a tie-in Lumia 900 phone imprinted with the iconic insignia of the Batman logo Nolan-style.

No, despite the fact that I am not going to give up my iPhone for this, we thank Nokia for this action-packed trailer that is a refreshing depart from the more sombre feel of the previous two trailers.

Taking a look at the viral aspect of the intriguing promotional campaign of the film, we see Gotham City Mayor Anthony Garcia (Nestor Carbonell) passing on a memo of a new legislation known as the Harvey Dent Act. Those who have watched the The Dark Knight (I can't imagine any readers here who haven't) would have knew what really happened. Harvey Dent Day, eh? Anyway, the bill would have been about taking on a stricter stance against organized crime.

Next up the viral alley, we have a look at pages from The Gotham Observer as they report on festivities for the aforementioned “Harvey Dent Day”. We have information on the report of the re-signing of Zach Harris (not Hines Ward) with the Gotham Rogues football team, an advert for the tech company, Rykin Data, and a slew of burglaries plaguing the city. Cat burglaries, I supposed.

The new TV spots.

For those who just can't get enough of potential spoiler-filled TV spots, Warner Bros. Pictures, in collaboration with Chrysler, has kicked off a contest soliciting a well-made 25-second TV spot from you, the fans. Footage can be retrieved from the website “Imported from Gotham City”, and the winner chosen by director Christopher Nolan himself will receive a trip to NYC to attend the red carpet premiere. However, there's no guarantee that the TV spot will actually air on TV though.

And here are the promotional posters which are somewhat kid-oriented.

Here's the official synopsis of the film:

Warner Bros. Pictures' and Legendary Pictures' "The Dark Knight Rises" is the epic conclusion to filmmaker Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy, Leading an all-star international cast, Oscar(R) winner Christian Bale ("The Fighter") again plays the dual role of Bruce Wayne/Batman.
