Dark Knight Poster!

Dec. 4, 2007by: James Thoo
Sweet Jesus, two THE DARK KNIGHT articles in one day! I expect nothing less than a Jennifer Lopez rom-com and a brand new Matthew Lillard sex tape to report tomorrow as a little payback from God. Whysoserious.com has revealed the first official poster for the movie, and yep, just like everything else from the film so far, it's pretty much the greatest thing ever. Obvious hyperbole aside, this thing is great. Behold:



Thanks to Devin for the heads up!
Extra Tidbit: I'm so glad that people who google 'Matthew Lillard sex tape' are going to come straight here. That's where the real traffic is at.

Cool poster, very original. You know I dont get it when people bitch an moan when movie companies decide to do something different for a change. That poster rocks!

What did you guys want? A bunch of faces plastered on the poster with no originality whatsoever? I think this one really kicks ass, it plays with both the batman theme and the joker theme. Thats genious.

And the "why so serious?" is probably a line from the movie that will be remembered for all eternity. Kind of like Jack

Worthless

You know, even though this is just a teaser poster, it's a worthless piece of shit. Think about it; after all the hard work fans went through with all the viral marketing, wearing Joker make-up, breaking codes this is the reward. A poster that looks like it's fan made.

:D

I'm sooo bloody excited for this movie, it's not even funny. This poster only makes me more impatient for 12-14/07-18 to roll around. I kinda agree w/ Dask about the tagline...but, I'm not going to lie, I'm still hip to this news.

Really?

I think it kinda blows. And the use of "Why So Serious?" as the tagline is retarded. I'm still REALLY excited for the movie, but I'm not a fan of this poster at all.

This is the reason why I check Joblo every hour. To be one of the first to see cool shit like this.

So the poster is already out, trailer coming soon... and then just sit down and wait... fuck

wow!

This is one of the coolest movie posters I've seen in a long time. And then the fact that it's completely perfect with the bloody bat symbol and joker's eyes and face... just wow. I was uber excited before this poster came out, now it's past uber... whatever that word is. I have never been so excited for a movie in my life... and we haven't even seen any footage yet! (except for those lucky enough to catch the IMAX stuff...) Even if I thought I Am Legend was gonna suck, I'd buy a ticket

best comic book teaser poster ever.

holy holy holy holy mac! It just hit me in the face like a brick. This movie...I don't want to say it's going to be the best thing this decade...but dammit I just can't help to feel so fucking excited for this movie. I am trying to reserve my judgment until the film comes out, but damn...they've done everything until now so right. I just can't freaking wait!

Wow. This is awesome. Whoever's behind "The Dark Knight" marketing should get a ten-fold raise!

Am I the only person who actually got excited when I skimmed and saw the words "Matthew Lillard" and "sex tape"?

Guess so.

that is so friggin awesome! I havent bought a movie poster in about 5 years simply because i dont have the money to spare and most posters are so friggin lame. But I'm buying this as soon as i see it wherever. but wasnt there already a first poster? the one with the first pic of the Joker where its all black behind and then just his face and the text was slanted? or was that just a fan poster?

I don't care what the hardcore fanboys say, this poster ROCKS!!!! Its simple. Some people were expecting to see all the characters on one poster. Folks, this is the teaser, and what a tease. So I ask to all you hardcore fanboys, WHY SO SERIOUS???

Sweet!! This is very cool, although I hope they do some that are similar to the Batman Begins ones. Those were great. This is cool for now though.
