The Dark Knight Rises (2012) first poster

the dark knight rises teaser poster 1

Here it is ladies and gentlemen, the first teaser poster for 'The Dark Knight Rises'. It marks the first use of traditional promotion for the film slated for 2012, before this was the viral bombardment of twitter to unlock the first official image.

With the classic symbol seen in the decaying buildings of Gotham City, the film follows it's predecessor's advertising campaign quite closely, if you'll remember the poster for 'The Dark Knight' where Batman stands below a building baring a burning version of the emblem. Destruction and bats, that is all I need from this campaign!!

This information also falls perfectly in time to reinforce the rumour of the first trailer to be screened with Harry Potter!

I'm a huge Batman fan, and I remember going to see 'Batman Begins' with my dad, with the final moments hinting at a sequel, I turned to my dad and said: 'that's going to be the best film ever.' he laughed, and nodded, agreeing half heartedly, but then the trailers started.

I think this has a lot to live up to, but if any filmmaker can go against the odds in Hollywood, it's Nolan.

I cannot wait...
