It's less than two weeks now until the release of The Dark Knight Rises, but we're here to help you through these last few days. We're bringing you daily doses of Bat-action here on Empire, but in case you need more on the film, a new 13-minute featurette has gone online for your viewing pleasure. If you don't want to know anything about the film, beware, because this does contain lots of info on the film. But if you're not afraid of some general information and explanation, watch away below!

 

The film, as any fool knows, stars Christian Bale, Tom Hardy, Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine, Anne Hathaway, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Gary Oldman and Marion Cotillard, and is directed by Christopher Nolan. It hits cinemas on July 20, amid a wave of fanboys fainting in sheer unbearable excitement.
