A live-action trailer for Batman: Arkham Knight has been released, asking regular folk to Be the Batman.
It doesn’t have too much to do with the game itself, but it’s extraordinarily stylish. It’s directed by Tim Cronenweth and Jeff Cronenweth – the latter of whom was cinematographer for Gone Girl, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, and Fight Club – and has Trent Reznor as music consultant. It’s also got Nine Inch Nails’ The Wretched as its backing soundtrack, so that’s something.
It’s basically a live-action thingy showing people standing up for what’s Right and Good and so on, like people fighting back against muggers and a chap stopping an old man from being harassed on a subway train. Then we get a few seconds of gameplay footage.
Check it out below. Batman: Arkham Knight is due out on 23 June.
