The Dark Knight Rises Minimalist Poster

With only one official poster hitting theaters in promotion of The Dark Knight Rises so far, fans are surely looking forward to more. After The Dark Knight delivered that amazing poster featuring Heath Ledger and The Joker with the blood-written "Why So Serious?" tagline, hopefully something with Tom Hardy as Bane emerges sooner than later. But for now, SuperHeroHype (via SlashFilm) has pointed us to a fantastic minimalist poster for the film crafted by Ryan Luckoo on Deviant Art. With a great juxtaposition of Bane's face and Batman's cape span, this should hold us over until a new poster shows up. See it below!

Here's the fan-made minimalist poster for The Dark Knight Rises from Ryan Luckloo at Deviant Art:

I respect these posters so much more when they're created prior to a film's release. Well done sir.

It's the chant that Zimmer used as an example when he asked for people to lend their voices to the score on ujam.  No one knows what it means yet...

The poster is sharp and a great idea for sure, but it would certainly hold more relevance to the movie if Banes mask in the poster was more like the movies and not so much like the mask in the comic.

love it.

I don't agree with the fact that this is a great poster, its nice to see a poster break away from being photographic, but only because its iconic and graphic these qualities alone don't make it a great minimalist poster. The concept is nice, but I think the execution is laking. And to note the typography makes everything way to busy, plus the old folded texture and color gives this a nod to the old "Batman: The Animated Series."
