Now there’s a fan-made trailer for a fictional film called Batkid Rises, via YouTube‘s SandD2012, to make you choke up all over again. They even nail the Christopher Nolanesque aesthetic in the opening sequence.

Apparently Hans Zimmer, the maestro behind Inception and The Dark Knight Rises, wrote a theme song for Batkid, which has yet to be released.
