Badass New Bane Viral Poster for 'The Dark Knight Rises' Discovered
Are you ready to RISE? Down to only 15 more days left until Christopher Nolan's long-awaited, extremely highly anticipated The Dark Knight Rises arrives in (IMAX) theaters everywhere. While there has been a slurry of odd updates related to TDKR recently, one that caught our eye was this new poster for the villain Bane, played by Tom Hardy. Found on IMPAwards (via Collider), it apparently was discovered in the online viral game at TheFireRises.com that we teased recently. The art looks more like a darker Warhol-esque rendering than an actual movie poster, which makes it all the more badass, and worth seeing in full below.
Check this out! I'm not entirely sure if it's real, but even if it's not, it is still cool enough to show you guys.
Eight years after The Dark Knight, the terrorist leader Bane arrives in Gotham City, pushing it and its police force to the limits, forcing its former hero Batman to resurface after taking the fall for Harvey Dent.
The Dark Knight Rises is once again directed by Oscar nominated British filmmaker Christopher Nolan, of Following, Memento, Insomnia, Batman Begins, The Prestige, The Dark Knight and Inception previously. The script was co-written by Christopher & Jonathan Nolan (The Prestige, The Dark Knight), from a story by Chris Nolan & David S. Goyer (of Batman Begins, The Dark Knight). Warner Bros is bringing The Dark Knight Rises to regular and IMAX theaters everywhere on July 20th coming up this month. The Fire Rises!
