Rant: The Dark Knight's First Teaser Poster
by Alex Billington
December 5, 2007
You've probably already seen it by now, and if not, you can see it below. The very first teaser poster for The Dark Knight appeared on WhySoSerious.com just yesterday. Although it's not terrible, I still need to rant about this poster. It's a brick wall, that's pretty much it. This poster should have debuted back in April or May before the very first photo of the joker ever appeared. Then at this time a real poster should have debuted instead. I really can't see this up at any theaters or even on my walls. What happened Warner Brothers? You guys were doing awesome!
Is anyone else disturbed by how boring and useless this teaser poster is? I know I've heard a few people say they actually like it, but I feel like Warner Brothers has let us down. I really hope there's either a set of teaser posters or a few different ones that also debut in the next few weeks.
The Dark Knight, the sequel to Batman Begins, is directed by Christopher Nolan (Memento, The Prestige) and co-written by Christopher Nolan, his brother Jonathan, and David S. Goyer. The movie arrives in theaters next summer on July 18th, 2008.
