The Dark Knight Rises Teaser Poster Has Arrived…

… and it is awesome. It’s done in that rather minimalistic approach as the early Dark Knight posters.

And we get a teaser this week. I am really excited, and I hope it’s half as effective as the teasers for Batman Begins or The Dark Knight, both of which were perfect examples of trailers that spurred interest and intrigue without giving anything away.

  1. This is really good. Now I just have to avoid the temptation to over analyze the poster for a storyline.

    Do you get shades of “No Man’s Land”, Darren?

    • I don’t know about No Man’s Land. I think an earthquake in a major North American city would be a rather convenient coincidence for Nolan to ask his audience to embrace on top of everything else. I rather think that the damage represents the city falling apart without Batman to hold it together.

  2. Reminds too much of Inception IMO which is worrisome to me.

    • Why? Inception, for any gripes about substance, is incredibly well-made. That said I don’t really see similarities here– crumbling buildings are really it, and that’s kind of a loose connection.

    • Beyond a city motif, I don’t see it, to be honest.

  3. The only similarity is that they both feature buildings.
