    I did. It was okay. I saw a different one on youtube that’s about 1:26 long that was much better. ?

    If David will tell me where to send the money, that thing would go on my wall.

    It’s pretty awesome, though he chose a not-so-awesome font for the “Begins. Falls. Rises.” part.

    Could definitely picture this as the cover for the inevitable box-set.

    Hey Kris, sorry for the spamming, but have you guys ever done a piece on trilogies? What makes a good trilogy, perfect trilogy, or even what qualifies as a true trilogy? And how such trilogies are weighed at the oscars, LOTR, Godfather etc.? Would make a good read.

    So awesome. I want this on my bedroom wall.

    My only complain is the color effect used for the “Begins – Falls – Rises” text… I’d remove the gradient outline, but aside from that, it’s most kickass.

    I think you can see Robin in tehis poster.

    JJ1- I think there is only one trailer. You probably saw a fan made one.

    I kind of like “Rises” in the title, thinking of what it means to the story, but I don’t like the repeat of “The Dark Knight.” Maybe if they used another nickname for the title, it would be better.

    I don’t necessarily feel like “Falls” describes what happens to Batman in TDK. He may have gotten bad PR at the end but the chracter still accomplishes what he wanted to accomplish.

    Sweet poster though. And I can’t look at the left side without seeing that unicorn anymore.

    My only issue is that I wouldn’t have used The Dark Knight in the title. I understand why they used it but it still bugs me.

    Well bad PR doesn’t fit on a poster, does it, Maxim?

    Louis: Of course it’s a fake.

    Chris: Never did anything focused on them, no. Worth considering.

    Maxim said...

    No, Drew, it’s doesn’t. And as far as PR is concerned, there is no such thing.

    Maxim: indeed one of his main goals was to retire Batman, as Harvey was the man that was going to lead the city and he could end up with Rachel. Rachel dies, Harvey dies, The Joker wins, and Batman becomes a fugitive. How exactly did he get what he wanted?

    I won’t be sad when we don’t have to hear about Chris Nolan’s Batman films anymore. As good as they are, people treating them (and especially “The Dark Knight”) as some sort of holy cinematic messiah makes me want to barf.

    Rashad, we are looking at it from different angles. As Batman, Bruce has made a choice about what’s more important to him – his personal life, personal ego or the safety of Gotham. In that regard, even if he didn’t 100% succeed everywhere, he does, at the end, manage to stop the main villain of the film. That, to me, counts, if not as a resounding success, then at least as something a little more than a fall.

    Think of it another way, Batman didn’t have to become a fugite but he chose to because he wanted to protect Harvey Dent’s image. He may have taken the fall for the guy but, he didn’t really fall in the sense that he stopped the madness.

    I guess it all depends on how you look at it.

    Could this be the cover art of the trilogy on Bluray?
