Christopher Nolan's 'The Dark Knight Rises' rises [Trailer]

"If you make yourself more than just a man," the teaser for director Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight Rises" begins, " ... you become something else entirely." Thus begins the string of clues about the next Batman movie.

There aren't a lot of details beyond that bit of portent -- an apparently hospitalized Commissioner Gordon, a quick shot of a fight scene -- but it seems more than enough to pique the interest of fans. The film is likely to be among the hot topics at this weekend's Comic-Con convention in San Diego (even sans Nolan or an announced "Dark Knight Rises" panel). The teaser's closing shot, which has the camera swooping down from above the Gotham skyscape, is enough to give one the visual scope of Nolan's new film even on a tiny computer screen.

The Batman movie hits just about a year from now -- with a lot more clues like this to come in the interim. Take a look:
