Gotham crumbles in the teaser poster for The Dark Knight Rises

Jul. 11, 2011by: Dave Davis

In Batman's time on the run since the events of THE DARK KNIGHT, things have clearly gotten shaky in Gotham City. Either that or Bruce Wayne's having some dream construct interruptions by co-star Marion Cotillard.

While we anxiously await the first trailer due later this week, here's the clever teaser poster for THE DARK KNIGHT RISES. Looks like our hero is going to have a seriously seismic problem with the various rogues this time around.

Director Christopher Nolan's trilogy-topper stars Christian Bale, Gary Oldman, Michael Caine, Tom Hardy, Anne Hathaway, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard, Morgan Freeman, Matthew Modine, Nestor Carbonell, Brett Cullen, Juno Temple and (reportedly) Liam Neeson.

And so it begins again...

This feels exactly like 2007 when hype for TDK began. And it led up to a phenomenal piece of cinema. Fantastic poster! I don't care if there's a hidden meaning or some message underneath. All I have to say is it's damn refreshing to see a creative poster with enough quality for a film as big as TDKR. This is awesome. Now, teaser please!

My excitement for this movie is slightly diminished by the fact that this will be the last Nolan Batman film I have to look forward to, anxiously awaiting each new poster or teaser trailer. I can't wait for it to get here, yet at the same time I want to enjoy the anticipation.

A reference to the fate of the Joker is important to escape HUGE plot hole-- (being a prisoner in Arkham doesn't cut it.)

I know Heath Ledger's Joker wont be back, and no Joker in general, but Joker is too big a villain, too much of a mastermind, too "ahead of the curve" to NOT be mentioned at least once in the film. I mean, if Bane breaks everyone out of Arkham like is rumored, then there's no mention of Joker? Or, if Joker escaped- it would be almost expected, 'cause he has so many people in Gotham police or organized crime in the palm of his hands, and he was a crime boss when he was caught. There has to be a
I know Heath Ledger's Joker wont be back, and no Joker in general, but Joker is too big a villain, too much of a mastermind, too "ahead of the curve" to NOT be mentioned at least once in the film. I mean, if Bane breaks everyone out of Arkham like is rumored, then there's no mention of Joker? Or, if Joker escaped- it would be almost expected, 'cause he has so many people in Gotham police or organized crime in the palm of his hands, and he was a crime boss when he was caught. There has to be a mention that he escaped or maybe got killed or something. Somehow explain his disappearance. Who knows, whatever it is, it needs to be acknowledged. If he escaped leave a Joker card behind. It may not seem to have anything to do with the story but yet it does, cause Arkham never held him for long.

He's Batmans greatest nemesis for a reason. He psychologically manipulates one of Arkkams best scientists and turns her into his sidekick Harley Quinn. He's a huge threat even in jail. NOT mentioning the Joker at all, in refference to what happens to him is a big plot hole in my opinion. I know Christopher Nolan knows this. He may not show the Joker but he needs to mention what ends up happening to him or his current status. His capture in Arkham would be a HUGE focus of Commissioner Gordan 'cause from experience they cannot take ANYTHING for granted. Something has to be referenced even if its one or two lines.

I hope you guys understand this and I hope that Nolan understands this, because I have a feeling he might miss the boat on this. Can't just forget the Joker and make like he never happened. This is not a Joker fan talking here, this is someone who saw a great movie and doesn't want a huge plot hole to taint a possibly amazing film.

Duuuude, give the director some credit. Hasn't he earned that? The movie is coming out in a year and all will be answered. If this happens to not be in the movie, then by all means post like this then. Until then, In Nolan We Trust.

Do you really think Nolan won't mention/address The Joker in this film? More than likely, this will be a huge element of the plot/theme. Of course the Joker won't actually appear on screen, but in TDK he literally destroyed the infrastructure of the mob. TDKR is probably (in some ways) going to be about what happens to Gotham when that criminal infrastructure is gone (maybe, Bane comes in and fills the void).

I'm pretty sure the main characters (Bruce, Alfred, Gordon) will mention The

I'm pretty sure the main characters (Bruce, Alfred, Gordon) will mention The Joker as well as Harvey and Rachel (just like Crane made an appearance in TDK and Carmine Falcone's absence was addressed). Ra's wasn't really mentioned in TDK, but his actions at the end of BB weren't really relevant to TDK, and as we're all speculating, Ra's will be of great importance to TDKR.

This poster has ALOT of problems. (READ before thumbing me the fuck down)

1. It really just looks like a rehashed Inception poster.
2. The Batman symbol isn't that clear to see.
3. No title, except the website at the bottom. Now you can get away with that when there's an iconic symbol (which the Batman symbols is) on the poster that clearly identifies it. But as I mentioned in #2. it's difficult to make out.
So unless people are already aware that that is what the poster is about, then how the hell are they going to know what movie it's for? For all they know it

That being said, don't think for a second that I'm ragging on TDKR, I couldn't be more excited for that movie. But it's just a lousy poster that will only appeal to us fanboys that are already clearly aware of the film.

You guys noticed it because YOU WERE LOOKING FOR IT. People passing by it on their way to Cars 2 aren't going to say "hey what's that poster for?" they're just going to see crumbling buildings and move on. No second looks.

The whole point is for people to take a second look at the poster for those who couldn't figure it out instantly. Anyone who couldn't figure this out was not going to see the film in the first place.

Seriously? The first thing I saw was the bat symbol, I'm not sure how you couldn't. I think you forget how big the last movie was, most people will understand what that is. And there isn't a title because it's a teaser poster, that is the purpose, to tease.

Good call. Cool concept, but the execution is sloppy. The crumbling stone is iffy and the heavy motion blur on the stones is amateurish. Lot of soft edges in places that shouldn't be soft too.

Definitely need more titles as well. I can see that they're targeting a specific fan boy market, but that doesn't mean they have to exclude other markets by leaving out the movie title.

In your defense, I agree. It doesn't do much to market the film. But to the film's defense, it made a gazillion dollars so it's not really catering to a small cult. I don't think TDK needs to reintroduce itself. I think the beauty is in its sublime imagery. People walking through the cinema will stare at it once, scan it to know what the heck it is, then suddenly notice the Bat symbol. Element of surprise there. Very effective. And it'll get people excited in an instant. I think it's pretty

you know dude, I agree with you, and I agree that teaser posters don't need a title on them, but now that I take another look at this you're right - for anyone else that's not a movie fan like us around these parts, they would just stare at this poster in confusion -- the logo just isn't that clear.

Also I think we agree on the originality of this poster. People are saying that it's creative, fresh, etc.? What the fuck? I seriously just think people are blinded by their Chris Nolan splooging.

On a separate note...

What's with the all the dick talk? Every site I've been to within the last 2hours has boatloads of penis-obsessed fans talking about 'their dark knights rising' or 'creaming their pants' or 'shitting through their dicks' or 'jizzing their pants with their boners'. Jesus Christ seriously, stop making this look so gay (the bad gay, not the sexual condition) with your sausage obsessions and fixation on jizz and cream or whatever. You make massive Batman fans like myself imagine being surrounded by

You make massive Batman fans like myself imagine being surrounded by erect penises sitting at the cinema. Now when I'm at the cinema next week and the teaser plays, all I'm going to picture is 100 penises standing up within a 10meter radius of myself. It's f*cking distracting and since I'm a guy it's f**king gross!!

I wouldn't rank it with some of the best posters we got re: Dark Knight 'why so serious' 'burning building.' But we didn't see anything this cool a year out from the last movie. Love to see this one in person at the theater, or at least in hi-res.

A little to Inception-ish for my tastes, but still a damn good teaser poster nonetheless. Got me just as giddy as the TDK brick wall one did in 2007.

Ra's Al Ghul Quote... Kind Of

This poster immediately made me think of a quote from Ken Watanabe in 'Batman Begins'. "Ra's Al Ghul: Gotham's time has come. Like Constantinople or Rome before it the city has become a breeding ground for suffering and injustice. It is beyond saving and must be allowed to die. This is the most important function of the League of Shadows. It is one we've performed for centuries. Gotham... must be destroyed." I think it's fairly obvious to all that Bane will be nothing more than an agent used

I think it's fairly obvious to all that Bane will be nothing more than an agent used by The League Of Shadows and that Marion Colltiard is actual Talia Al Ghul. It gives credence to the whole "wrapped up trilogy" idea.

The poster is alright I guess. It looks kinda similar to the Dark Knight's poster except Batman and the cycle are missing. Here is the description of the teaser in case everyone doesn't read up on the news....

● It starts with the Batman logo wreathed in blue flames.
● Theres a title card which says Every Hero Has A Journey which is so clich it makes my eyes hurt.
● It contains footage from Batman Begins in which Bruce Wayne walks up to the mountain village looking

● It contains footage from Batman Begins in which Bruce Wayne walks up to the mountain village looking for Ras.
● Theres another clich title card, this time its Every Hero Has An End
● Liam Neeson does a voiceover as Ras al Ghul, also probably taken from Begins.
● Enter another clich title card. This time The Epic Conclusion. That one doesnt make much sense. Warner Bros. hasnt been positioning this as the last Batman movie. It is Nolans last Batman movie, but odds are they want to keep making them after hes done and this isnt Harry Potter with its It All Ends Here tagline.
● There are some shots of Gordon lying in a hospital bed, talking about how much they need Batman, telling him that Batman HAS to come back. That part makes no sense at all, because when Dark Knight ended Batman was still in business and committed to protecting Gotham even if they hated him.
● There are some shots of the bat pod, which the scooper calls the Bat Cycle, Gordon destroying the Bat Signal, some crumbling buildings like the ones in the poster and then the logo.

I don't see it.

I found this story at Yahoo movies. see the link at the bottom of my post. Can any one tell me why this guy even writes about this? Except for the buildings being tall I don't see the similarity to the Inception poster. [link]

One of the best teaser posters I've ever seen! I actually prefer this one over the one for TDK.
