THE DARK KNIGHT RISES Viral Campaign Continues with an Issue of the Gotham Observer

     June 22, 2012


A couple days ago we brought you a new piece of The Dark Knight Rises viral goodness by showing you the Mayor of Gotham’s signing of the Dent Act, which brings stronger penalties against the city’s criminals.  Now an issue of Gotham’s paper-of-record, The Gotham Observer, is reporting on festivities for “Harvey Dent Day”, a slew of burglaries across the city (*cough*Catwoman*cough*), Zach Harris re-singing with the Gotham Rogues football team (he’s no Hines Ward), the ransacking of construction sites, and ad for the tech company, Rykin Data.  Go to the website, and you’ll see that it’s under construction, but there’s an extract from a patent for an algorithm that can wipe away your entire digital footprint.  Not a bad program for someone looking to disappear.

Hit the jump to check out the pages of the Gotham Observer.  The film stars Christian Bale, Anne Hathaway, Tom Hardy, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Marion Cotillard, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Morgan FreemanThe Dark Knight Rises opens July 20th.
