THE DARK KNIGHT RISES Wants You to Create a New TV Spot; Christopher Nolan to Select the Winner

     June 18, 2012


Since there’s been a non-stop onslaught of The Dark Knight Rises advertising (we’ll have links to all of it after the jump), it’s unsurprising that Warner Bros. now wants you to create some of it yourself.  The studio and Chrysler are holding a contest where users can take assets from the website “Imported from Gotham City”, and re-edit them into a new 25-second TV spot, and the winner will receive a trip to NYC to attend the red carpet premiere.  Christopher Nolan will choose the winner, although there’s no guarantee that the spot will actually air on television.  Additionally, your TV spot must not only promote TDKR, but also “Chrysler brands”.  I assume the brands are cars that get destroyed as Batman tries to save Gotham City.

Hit the jump for more on the contest and a refresher on all of the other advertising.  The film stars stars Christian Bale, Anne Hathaway, Tom Hardy, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Marion CotillardThe Dark Knight Rises opens July 20th.
