So far today, The Dark Knight Rises has blessed us with a new TV spot and trailer.  Hot on the heels of those videos comes a new IMAX poster featuring Tom Hardy’s Bane up close and personal.  The limited edition 12:01 IMAX poster will be gifted to fans who attend the midnight IMAX showing of The Dark Knight Rises on opening night.  Maybe it’s just eye strain and marketing fatigue, but do I spy a bat-symbol on the bridge of Bane’s nose and eyes?  Or has Christopher Nolan incepted my mind and is testing how successful his efforts have been via this Rorshach test? Hit the jump to decide for yourselves.

The Dark Knight Rises, starring Christian Bale, Anne Hathaway, Morgan Freeman, Marion Cotillard, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Michael Caine and Gary Oldman debuts in IMAX July 20th.

Here’s the official synopsis for The Dark Knight Rises:

the-dark-knight-rises-imax-posterWarner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ “The Dark Knight Rises” is the epic conclusion to filmmaker Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy.

It has been eight years since Batman vanished into the night, turning, in that instant, from hero to fugitive. Assuming the blame for the death of D.A. Harvey Dent, the Dark Knight sacrificed everything for what he and Commissioner Gordon both hoped was the greater good. For a time the lie worked, as criminal activity in Gotham City was crushed under the weight of the anti-crime Dent Act.

But everything will change with the arrival of a cunning cat burglar with a mysterious agenda. Far more dangerous, however, is the emergence of Bane, a masked terrorist whose ruthless plans for Gotham drive Bruce out of his self-imposed exile. But even if he dons the cape and cowl again, Batman may be no match for Bane.

Leading an all-star international cast, Oscar(R) winner Christian Bale (“The Fighter”) again plays the dual role of Bruce Wayne/Batman. The film also stars Anne Hathaway, as Selina Kyle; Tom Hardy, as Bane; Oscar(R) winner Marion Cotillard (“La Vie en Rose”), as Miranda Tate; and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, as John Blake. Returning to the main cast, Oscar(R) winner Michael Caine (“The Cider House Rules”) plays Alfred; Gary Oldman is Commissioner Gordon; and Oscar(R) winner Morgan Freeman (“Million Dollar Baby”) reprises the role of Lucius Fox. The screenplay is written by Christopher Nolan and Jonathan Nolan, story by Christopher Nolan & David S. Goyer. The film is produced by Emma Thomas, Christopher Nolan and Charles Roven, who previously teamed on “Batman Begins” and the record-breaking blockbuster “The Dark Knight.” The executive producers are Benjamin Melniker, Michael E. Uslan, Kevin De La Noy and Thomas Tull, with Jordan Goldberg serving as co-producer. The film is based upon characters appearing in comic books published by DC Comics. Batman was created by Bob Kane.
