The International DARK KNIGHT Poster Friggin' Rocks!!

Merrick here...
Here's the international DARK KNIGHT poster. It's way, way, way cool...I love the colors and atmosphere here.


This comes to us via, who scored it as an exclusive. Well done! I'm looking forward to seeing that 6 minute DARK KNIGHT clip that's running in front of I AM LEGEND's IMAX release. Word is a new trailer may hit online sometime next week, possibly Monday.

    You call *that* a poster?!

    by MikeTheSpike

    Oh, wait, yeah, that's not half bad. I've been pretty nonplussed about this movie since the start (I'm looking forward to frigging Iron Man more than this), but this little image has the juices flowing.

    by CornNut007

    Pretty decent.

    by Mr. Nice Gaius

    I dig it. For some reason, it reminds me of GHOST IN THE SHELL - kind of a futuristic thing going on. Although, I must say that the "Why so serious?" poster's simplistic genius wins out over this one.

    Oliver Stone's "Wall Street"-ish?

    by WX1

    <p>Honestly, the first few seconds glancing the poster, I get an image of the Bud Fox character from "Wall Street" telling the realtor, "Just SELL the f&*cker!!"</p> <p>Needs more -- why does Gotham look like Hong Kong (unless parts of DKR takes PLACE in Hong Kong).</p> <p>Also, ahem: Josh Brolin is THE Tony Stark.</p>

    Batman poster looks very EMPIRE STRIKES BACK

    by odysseus

    Specifically, Vader on the deck of his star destroyer. Gotta be on purpose. It's interesting that, if they're suggesting this is the ESB of the Batman trilogy, Bats should be striking a Vader pose. What are they suggesting...?

  • Dec. 13, 2007, 8:57 p.m. CST


    by That 70s Venom

    ... this poster is actually a Rorscach Inkblot Test and people see exactly what they want to see out of it. So basically that means that you're gay for batsy. It's cool with me though if you're gay. I rather enjoy the company of homosexuals.

  • Dec. 13, 2007, 8:57 p.m. CST

    Mr.Saxon, you are so right about that 6 minute shit.

    by future help

    that and the long trailers that show/give away the whole movie. And often in fuckin' sequence. What the fuck has become of these corporate whores and their marketing? and yes, i like the Bat-poster. (feels like the last shot of Fight Club mixed with Vader)

    i don't get why they have him inside a building. I mean..this is fucking batman. He should be standing on top of the building looking over the city not hiding out inside the building. Still, cool poster.

  • Dec. 13, 2007, 9:34 p.m. CST

    subliminal message in city scape?- check my link


    no joke, at least I sorta see it. the word BAT on his left, and MAN on his (our) right, very vaguely in the building and light shapes.<P> the B is more or less in the 'off' lights of the second window..<P>both 'A's are really obvious, as is the T. the M and N are a little bit of a strecth, but are the only panels besides the T with any diagonal break up.<P> I made a guide with red lettering, but compare it with the stock image.<P> check out this guide pic i made here: <P>

    Why does it look fake to me?

    by timopictures

    My gut instinct tells me this is fake. It doesn't jive with the style of their advertising so far. The title font is the same size as the WB/DC logos at the bottom, which is way too small. And the buildings shouldn't be able to reflect the way they are on the floor. He's looking down on the city, but the buildings from way below are somehow reflecting in the floor?

  • Dec. 13, 2007, 10 p.m. CST

    That reflection is insane! It's maddeningly wrong!

  • Dec. 13, 2007, 10 p.m. CST

    My interpretation

    by Napoleon Park

    I get a real vulnerable, human "Night Owl" from Watchmen sort of vibe off it. It's the assymetry, with the flechettes from the glove sticking out just on one side, and Batman/Wayne's forlorn Charlie Brown posture. Looking out on that HUGE freaking city and realizing that he's just one man in a dopey costume who's bitten off way more than he can chew. This is NOT a criticism. I like the ideal of a 'realistic' Batman sobered by the realization of the impossible odds he's chosen to face, and that's what this poster says to me. Yeah, I'll be cropping it into a wallpaper as soon as photoshop opens.

  • Dec. 13, 2007, 10 p.m. CST



    ...."And the buildings shouldn't be able to reflect the way they are on the floor. He's looking down on the city, but the buildings from way below are somehow reflecting in the floor?"<P> if you were up there with him, you would see the buildings on the floor the farther away you got from the window. batman would not, but this shot seems to be taken from behind and slightly above batman. far enough away to get all the floor and ceiling in perspective. It's a little forced and comic-booky, but not all that far off.

  • Dec. 13, 2007, 10:05 p.m. CST


    by timopictures

    I mean there are buildings (and even STREETS) which appear to be only like 2-3 stories high, and they are somehow reflected on the floor. I just don't see a huge ad agency making mistakes like that.

    What's with the "stupid American" shit, TallBoy66?

    by I Dunno

    I see this shit on a lot of movie sites. <p>Yes, there are a lot of big, dumb American movies. And most of them make more money overseas than they do here. And who made this movie with the poster that's so much more intellectual than any American can handle? Oh, Nolan? Who signs his checks? Without looking it up, I'll guess an American Jew.</p> <p>So get off your high horse about Americans and let us get back to quoting Fight Club, a film that was greenlit by an American jew who was promptly fired because it bombed so badly for not being AMERICA, FUCK YEAH! enough. But the fact remains that it was still produced in America.</p>

  • Dec. 13, 2007, 10:09 p.m. CST

    oops-"Batman would never be in Wayne Tower"


    if his other pad was trashed..uh, yeah. Plus you think he's gonna work or do business there and NOT have some batman gear around in case of emergency? I'm sure he can make some great hiding place. Heck, after a while, he could keep it (his costume)out on display and probably get away with saying that batman donated one or he bought a replica one.

    It's the Bat-Suite...

    by Uncle Bobo

    ...aka "the Bat-Crib"..aka "the Belfry"...a kind of short stay for Bats while the Bat-Cave undergoes some much needed renovations. Meanwhile, the poster image strikes an interesting idea to me of the duality between Bruce Wayne and Batman. Is he Bruce Wayne, overseer of Wayne Enterprises, or Batman, lawless vigilante? An image of Bruce Wayne in the Batcave might have the same idea, but not as interesting visually...

    New trailer on I AM LEGEND. *SPOILERS*

    by movieman742

    I work at a local theater and there was a new 2 minute 30 second trailer for TDK attached to IAL. I really enjoyed it. Lots of Joker. It starts off with a Joker V.O. He is talking to Batman saying no one understands him and he's "a freik...... LIKE ME!!" Fucking great opening. There was alot of Joker in it and no sign of Dent. A few scenes with the Batpod. Joker with a rocket launcher and another scene with an assault rifle. Then Gordon is talking to a police dude about "a guy they brought in, no finger prints and nothing on him but lint and knives". A few scenes of him in jail. If you saw the Empire pic thats the scene I'm talking about. Then there is a few clips of Alfred, i think, doing a v.o. about knowing it would escalate and bad things would happen. The scenes with this is Bale sitting against a wall, full gear on minus the mask and he looks depressed while looking at it. A few scenes with Morgan Freeman, a few with Maggie Gyllenhaal. There was a scene with a SEMI TRAILER flipping over front end to back end, the long ways, that was crazy. Thats all I can think of at the moment, ill tell anything else if it comes to me

  • Dec. 13, 2007, 11:53 p.m. CST

    Yeeaaahh... I'm thinking this is fake, too.

    by SilentP

    First of all, it's a really nice poster, so if it's not fake, you know, yay. But I mean, that city in the background doesn't even look like Gotham from the first movie at all. As someone else mentioned, where's the monorail? Not to mention that Batman also looks kind of too photoshopped in there. And the fact that it comes to us via "" doesn't really do anything for me. Is this a reputable site? <br> I think I'll wait a couple of days before getting completely excited about this poster, see if it isn't proven fake, lol. <br> But regardless, really nice poster. :)

    by Mattyboy122

    Every problem I have with Nolan's Batman is summed up in this poster. It's too real. There's no visual imagination. Batman should exist in a noir-ish world. Say what you will about Burton's films, but his first Batman flick nailed the look of Gotham City. The Gotham of Batman Returns is like a fairy tale city, but the first flick's Gotham was great.

    by veritasses

    the city doesn't really match the corrupt/decaying image of Gotham. Plus Batman looking out from the inside of a building is odd. He should be on the rooftops or behind a gargoyle. It doesn't conjure "dark" or "knight". Of course this could all be by design but unless it ties in to a specific moment or theme from the movie, I'd give it just an 'ok'.

  • Dec. 14, 2007, 1:06 a.m. CST

    I disagree

    by Pipple

    Batman works best in a noir-ish setting similar to burton's and batman Tas. Old school film noir, ganster movies, all probably influenced batman in the first place... that said, Nolan's films feel more like james bond than gritty oldschool bogart noir.

    The poster is certainly suppose to depict Batman surveying Gotham from his new downtown penthouse (a plot point known online now for months).

It is not Hong Kong, which would make no sense (even though Batman reportedly visits there) because the movie is about Batman and his city.

It really does feel ridiculous to mention, even though it was just a step in helping to educate myself in the process of writing for film, utilizing a subject I'm familiar with...and quite passionate about. Anyway, moving to the penthouse only makes sense, with the destruction of Wayne Manor. That's exactly why I had done it in my little attempt of a screenplay, titled "DROWNING IN LAUGHTER", which I was ready to illustrate into a poster image. (Rachel Dawes body is found at the bottom of the Gotham River in the opening sequence.) The movie poster design I had in mind would have had the Joker grinning while looking into a fishbowl, giving us a fishbowl face (a bit of a teaser). And with the lighting from below, from the fishbowl itself, highlighting the Joker's "fishbowl face", the background offered various options. There was the option of background characters in complete silhouette...or even a window with a view of the Bat-signal or even Batman himself. As an artist, I enjoyed the thought of playing with the design until completion, though I lost inspiration upon the reaction of a few talkbackers, here at AICN. Even so, from my own personal perspective and knowledge of the characters, I truly loved what I had written. It was fun while it lasted.

    I'm going to bitch and moan, here's why

    Firstly, Batman looks like a geek dressed up. There's nothing powerful about being on the top floor of a building behind big glass. He should be standing outside, not like a pussy geek dressed up ready to go downstairs to a dress up party. Also, the city just looks to big for batman. Like, it doesn't need him. oh well.

    I thought it was chromulent. Did I mishear it or did you, but hell yeah it was funny. Edna:"I never heard of embiggen before moving to Springfield." Other teacher: "I don't know why, it's a perfectly chromulent word" Or am I flip flopping the teachers,whatever.

    Don't let these dour fucks in the talkbacks get you down, they'll hate on anything under the sun. FWIW the design you mentioned sounds pretty interesting. And I think we all can agree that that's exactly where Rachel Dawes needed to end up.

    Thank god somebody mentioned the darth vader-esque nature of the poster cause that's the first thing I thought of. That being said, it still rocks my world.

    Penthouse Makes Sense

    by baddaddy

    If the last scene of BB with Gordon is right after the bank robbery. Plus Wayne Manor just burned to the ground. You can't just pull a new mansion out of your ass, or use a cave with dozens of construction workers plodding around upstairs. My amazing psychic predicion for this movie; the last scene if Bruce walking into the rebuilt mansion, going down to the cave, flipping on the lights and we see the fully loaded Batcave, big screens super computers, weapons on top of weapons on top of gadgets and vehicles then cut to the bandages being removed from harvey's face!
