Tom Hardy as Bane in 'The Dark Knight Rises'

The new trailer for The Dark Knight Rises emphasizes mayhem and the fearsome malevolence of Bane (Tom Hardy), the oddly masked villain who proclaims himself “Gotham’s reckoning.” See it after the jump.

Opening July 20, the film is the last of Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy and features several new characters besides Bane. They include Anne Hathaway’s Selina Kyle (Catwoman), Marion Cotillard as Miranda Tate and Joseph Gordon-Levitt as John Blake.

Returning cast members (besides, of course, Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne/Batman) include Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman and Liam Neeson.
