If you're Dark Knight-obsessed, and you've tired of re-watching the offiial trailer in anticipation of the summer blockbuster, than check out a new version re-enacted by Legos.

Yes, Legos.

In a Paranickfilmz-produced spoof of the official trailer for Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises, the block-headed figurines stand in for Batman (Christian Bale), Catwoman (Anne Hathaway) and evil masked villain Bane (Tom Hardy), whose voice -- in Lego form -- remains muffled, per the original audio.

The toy parody manages to keep Nolan's ominous tone as Bane blows up a football field and Catwoman whispers threats in Bruce Wayne's ear.

The Dark Knight Rises, the final installment in the commercially successful and critically acclaimed franchise, hits theaters July 20.

Until then, feast your eyes on the Lego re-enactment below.
