First Teaser Poster for THE DARK KNIGHT RISES

     July 11, 2011


The first official teaser poster for Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises has landed online and, in doing so, has successfully made my night. While I’ll shy away from over-analyzing the sheet, I will say it looks to be making use of the dream imagery so important to Nolan’s previous film, Inception, while simultaneously reminding me that my Summer 2012 wedding has some competition for my “most anticipated” summer event (I’m joking…for the most part).

Hit the jump to check out the poster. Opening on July 20th, 2012, The Dark Knight Rises stars Christian Bale, Tom Hardy, Anne Hathaway, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Gary Oldman, Marion Cotillard, and Morgan Freeman. Also, be sure to check back here for the film’s teaser trailer which is expected to debut later this week with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2.

Also, we were just sent the description of the teaser trailer for The Dark Knight RisesClick here if you’d like to read it.

Here’s the poster courtesy of The Dark Knight Rises official website [click to enlarge]:

    I need this poster.

  • Mike

    wow Jason your getting married? my condolences

    and i think this movie is going to break Avatars record. If any movie has a chance to its this one. I know its going to gross over a billion. It JUST might

    • joe kerr

      hope it does, and maybe it will finally prove that there´s absolutely no need of 3D to make a impressively good movie.

    • Oliver

      Without 3D; that will never happen – it would literally have to make twice the money TDK made (which had to be released two times over to cross 1 Billion). If anything comes close to Avatar it might be Harry Potter; DKR isn’t going to get young kids in the theatre.

    now THAT’S a poster

  • migz13

    Leaves you scratching your head in utter delight with the question:

    No Man’s Land anyone?!?:D

    • SumKunt

      Was thinking that same thing… NO MANS LAND! That would be Epic if Gotham has an earthquake. Maybe the lack of Joker will be made up for using Inception style building collapsing. It would sertainly take Batman films to a new level of destruction. I hope its the case. Also, a destroyed Gotham would be a great use for the rumoured Bat-Plane/Copter to find its use.

    when you look at a close up of the face part of the bat you can kind of make out a cat face.

  • jak123456

    -the superman symbol is a mirage
    -two hints at catwoman are in the image
    -the upper right hand corner has the joker
    -a bat cowl is on the left side above the wing
