There was a time when one could argue that The Smashing Pumpkins were the biggest band in the world. In the mid-1990’s, after the loss of Kurt Cobain and before Radiohead’s OK Computer and the resurgence of U2, there was Billy Corgan’s shaved head, lanky body and iconic ‘Zero’ shirt representing a generation. But by the late-90’s, and for the first decade of this millennium, The Smashing Pumpkins became a revolving door of members, even officially breaking-up and reuniting (albeit with a new band) in 2005. The band’s output during this period can be best described as disjointed, self-indulgent and more of a Billy Corgan solo endeavour than a true band experience.
A new trailer for The Dark Knight Rises has hit, one that gives an even greater look at what Bane (Tom Hardy) has up his sleeve. There’s interesting talk that that the film is combining elements of both Knightfall and The Dark Knight Returns – you can see a few hints of the latter in here, if you look close. Check the trailer our after the jump and let us know if you’re excited for The Dark Knight Rises?
