Yesterday’s heavily photoshopped and somewhat lazy looking new poster for The Dark Knight Rises received plenty of criticism from fans which Warner Brothers wasn’t exactly hoping for. With very little marketing so far, the studio is looking to really kick off the promotion in a big way and yet that sort of attention felt like a misstep. Thankfully, WB has also released six new posters to go alongside the new Facebook one-sheet, featuring the three major characters in play and looking much better compared to the last effort.
Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ “The Dark Knight Rises” is the epic conclusion to filmmaker Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy.
