Check out Jock’s Mondo Poster for THE DARK KNIGHT RISES

     July 11, 2012


I’m currently sitting in my hotel room posting stories (someone has to bring the news to you fine people), but Steve tweeted that it was “beyond insane” down at the Mondo booth (#437) on the Comic-Con exhibitor’s floor.  Don’t expect the insanity to let up tomorrow, because Mondo will be releasing a poster for The Dark Knight Rises by Jock.  I would love to see the level of detail on this thing close-up, and the poster is a nice callback (either intentionally or unintentionally) to the bat-centric Batman Begins in that Batman actually used bats as a weapon.

Hit the jump to check out the poster.  It measures 24″ x 36″, is limited to an edition of 375, and costs $50.  The poster will go on sale tomorrow, July 12th at a random time, so be sure you’re following @MondoNews for the announcement.  The Dark Knight Rises opens 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.
