This made a lot more sense at 5 AM. I regret nothing.
Warner Brothers and Chris Nolan have released the first poster for The Dark Knight Rises, which could have been a picture of a tennis ball in a puddle and I’d still be pumped for this movie. Instead they made a poster showing Gotham in peril and had some fun with the negative space. This is the second official picture (the first being that viral picture of Bane) for the movie. It opens July 20th of next year, so they’ve got more than twelve months left to release pictures I can photoshop with Morgan Freeman holding cotton candy. Look out, Mr. Freeman! You’re going to get concrete in your tasty treat!
The unaltered poster is below:

For comparison, here are a couple promo images from the previous two Nolan Batman films:
