Fans of the modern Batman series are eagerly awaiting the next installment of the Dark Knight franchise, due in theaters this summer. To help them pass the time until the movie's release, Lego aficionado ParanickFilmz created a reimagined trailer, along with help from a few associates who handled the mouth animation and CGI effects.

Did anyone else squeal after hearing the original audio from the trailer integrated with this Lego-ized version?

We have to applaud the level of detail seen in the various buildings and time-consuming stop-animation. The figure chosen for Christian Bale's character seems to perfectly capture his gritty expression. ParanickFilmz created the sets and scenes and shot the entire thing with a simple handheld HD camcorder.
