After some fits and starts thanks to a non-working link on Apple, the first full trailer for 'The Dark Knight Rises' has exploded online. Not literally, but kinda. As in: Bane keeps the fire rising by pressuring Batman and destroying an entire football field. If that scene looks a little too much like 'The Last Boy Scout' for your taste -- and it should -- don't worry: there are also shots of Selina Kyle (Anne Hathaway) and the mysterious characters played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard and Matthew Modine. The only thing this slam-bam trailer doesn't really allude to? The fact that you cannot understand most of what Bane (Tom Hardy) says -- at least judging by the beautiful-looking-if-incomprehensible IMAX prologue that many saw in front of 'Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol' over the weekend.

Head over to Apple to watch the trailer in HD; Moviefone will post the embed when it becomes available.

'The Dark Knight Rises,' from director Christopher Nolan, arrives in theaters on July 20, 2012.

UPDATE: Watch below!
