Barring any delays, we're now a little more than a month away from the release of Matt Reeves' The Batman, featuring Robert Pattinson as Bruce Wayne. To keep the movie in our minds, Warner Bros. has released two tantalising items: composer Michael Giacchino's theme and the first full clip from the movie.

Giacchino, is of course, a regular collaborator with Reeves, having worked on movies such as Cloverfield and the director's two Planet Of The Apes outings. For The Batman, the talented composer has cooked up a theme that is by turns moody and soaring, and we're looking forward to seeing how it plays in the movie.

As for the clip, don't go expecting any Caped Crusader action: the scene is at a funeral attended by Bruce Wayne, Jeffrey Wright's Commissioner Gordon and other notables, and is unexpectedly crashed by what appears to be a hijack victim. Who is really behind the speeding car? Looks like Paul Dano's Riddler. Check it out below.

The Batman lands on 4 March.
