Dark Knight Rises poster tries, fails to ape previous one


There’s a new poster for The Dark Knight Rises, just released via the film’s official Facebook page, and it reminds me a lot of one of the posters released for the film’s predecessor, The Dark Knight. I’ve included both posters in the gallery below for you to make your own conclusions. While this new poster takes the aesthetic idea of the Dark Knight poster (anarchy/terrorism in Gotham) and blows it up, quite literally, into an exploding city-scape, it still feels like the old idea reheated for new consumption. 

Regardless, it serves as yet another reminder that July 20th needs to be here already, even if I can’t see it at midnight in IMAX because goddamned LA is all sold out someone get me some stabbing things I want to commit murders.
