The following was screened to players on the ground for the Whysoserious.com/itsallpartoftheplan exercise at various movie theaters. It appears to be the third trailer showing Harvey Dent and Batman considering the price of fighting Gotham's crime, and the Joker:

In addition to the original film, one participant per location also received a film reel, which the Joker had vandalized throughout. Numerous participants attempted to screen these reels later, but a digital copy was finally found as an easter egg in the Blu-ray compilation of the Joker's magnum opus. (Enter the numbers 56537 while playing Trailer #3 on disc 2).

The following are notes and observations from the Chicago reel. Comparisons between the NY, Chicago, Dallas, and London reels show that the vandalism was basically identical between each reel, although the order of particular scenes sometimes differed slightly.
