It seems as if the marketing department behind The Dark Knight Rises has set its sights on total worldwide dominion as, four full-length trailers and about 15 teasers/ TV spots later, they’re still churning out new teasers, sneak peeks, and TV spots for the upcoming film—and each one contains a bevy of new footage. Today’s clip: a one-minute Hong Kong TV spot (in English), that focuses on the return of Batman after eight years of post-The Dark Knight exile.

The Dark Knight Rises is set for a July 20th release.
