‘Dark Knight’ Movie Trailer Features Occupy Wall Street Themes

“Batman” franchise director Christopher Nolan has inserted explicit political content in the just released trailer of the film “The Dark Knight Rises.”

Reports had circulated that the director had picked a shooting location close to the Occupy Wall Street protest site. One of the stars of “Dark Knight,” Ann Hathaway, was actually photographed participating in an Occupy protest.

The actor-activist recently spoke at The Economist’s event in the Big Apple and made some eyebrow-raising remarks about the GOP. Instead of attacking Republicans in his typical style, the “30 Rock” star offered some strategic political advice while simultaneously showing that he has a soft spot for former Gov. Mitt Romney.
