A bootleg version of The Dark Knight Rises teaser trailer has recently leaked online, and Warner Bros are frantically trying to get it removed every time it gets uploaded to YouTube (or any other file sharing website).
This led me to think why don't Warner Bros just release the trailer officially. I know they want people to see it for the first time before Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, but in this day and age these things almost always leak.
If it was me, I'd want people to see the trailer in good quality and how it was intended to be seen, not from some shakey cam-corder filming the screen. The second they release it properly, no one will even bother with the bootleg ones!
The Sherlock Holmes sequel trailer is also due to be attached to Harry Potter, and Warner Bros have already released that officially so why not for The Dark Knight Rises?
