‘Dark Knight Rises’: Costume Images, Graffiti & IMAX Posters, Bat TV Spot

3 years ago by  

[UPDATE: Check Out a New Dark Knight Rises IMAX Poster!]

With Amazing Spider-Man (read our review) now in theaters, the only big superhero movie left on the 2012 docket is The Dark Knight Rises, Christopher Nolan’s epic finale to the Dark Knight trilogy, which will see Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale) come out of Batman retirement to face the terroristic threat of Bane (Tom Hardy), with costumed thief Catwoman (Anne Hathaway) stuck in the middle.

The final lef of the Dark Knight Rises promotional campaign has bombarded us with new trailers, tv spots, viral materials, and even fun facts like the movie’s running time being just shy of 3 hours (over half of that time being dedicated to some epic action sequences). Now we’re getting some of the finer details, with looks at the costumes that will be worn in the film – as well as a Bane-inspired graffiti poster, and a TV spot focusing on Batman’s new air superiority, courtesy of The Bat.

We’ve already had looks at the costume designs for Batman, Bane and Catwoman – be it in official Dark Knight Rises images, concept art, or other such media. Today, however, we have an up close and detailed look at the work of Lindy Hemming, the Oscar-winning costume designer who has worked on all three of Nolan’s Batman films. Check out the pics of the Dark Knight Rises costumes on display at an international exhibition (courtesy of CBM), along with a new Graffiti poster, courtesy of Warner Bros.:

Finally, check out this International Dark Knight Rises TV spot, courtesy of Warner Bros. Hong Kong. It only has a couple of seconds of new footage toward the end, should you want to jump ahead:

  1. There is a new Batman movie coming out? Who is the bad guy?
    I can’t believe the lack of attention this movie is getting . .

    Seriously though, I do believe in over saturation. Nolan could of shown us one 30 minute teaser trailer and sold out every cinema around the world.
    I am perhaps in a small minority, but I would love for once to know nothing about a movie going into it. This could of been one of those times and it would of saved the distributors a truck load of marketing money.
    (Please don’t tell me not to look then, like you, I can not resist).

    • I agree with you but at the same time, I guess studios worry and a lot of people also get upset or just want another excuse to complain if they know nothing about a movie until the weeks before release.

      Honestly, this movie sold me last June when I saw my first fan-recorded video on youtube of 3 Tumblers in camo paint driving slowly down a street in Philly and parking up for 30 minutes.

      • Three tumblers? Holy moley. I was sold on Tom Hardy. [Not in a gay way]

      • It’s true. No one who complains about anything has a good reason to do so. They do so because they found an excuse, those killjoys. For instance, Bane catching Batman’s fist in the riot is just like Bane catching Batman’s fist in the tunnel fight, but to point out that the overcautious freak Batman would not develop a defense to this maneuver after its first occurrence, would be as wordy and boring as supposing he would have formed a plan to deal with an enemy releasing all of his foes from Arkham after Ra’s al Ghul did it in issue 400, well before Bane’s first comic book appearance. That kind of illogic alienates the newcomers and ticket buyers, and has to be dealt with through endless retcons, reloads, and new 52s, until events themselves become standard issues and nothing is really much fun anymore. tldr; Woo-hoo.

    • Although I agree with you. It all comes down to your final decisions. Personally, I had decided not to Watch The 4th Trailer nor any TV Spots at all, I even avoided some comments sections so I stay in my `unknown state`. If i May use this expression lol These images are no spoilers. So Far, It is working out for me because although I virtually know what could happen in the movie, I Still don`t Know anything… For the Better IMO :)

      • @Mike, I admire your self-control.
        @darkscifious, I feel your pain, bro.

        I was just talking to my brother in-law yesterday, and he was telling me that he knows next to nothing about The Dark Knight Rises. He said that he knows that Anne Hathaway plays Catwoman and that Bane is in it, but that’s pretty much all he knows and all he wants to know. He hasn’t watched any of the trailers and when he saw The Avengers, he said that he actually closed his eyes and ears during the TDKR trailer. He wants to go into the movie knowing next to nothing about the plot.

        I am so jealous. In this case, ignorance is bliss.

        • @Ezra,
          Lol Ignorance is definitely Bliss. I remember that at first, I could not resist but for some reason, I just stopped. The only thing is, Just like when you are working, you are constantly looking at the time, I am constantly looking at the calendar and it`s a bittersweet feeling to know that the premiere is far but close at the same time. Now, Your brother in Law has more control than me and I give him my respect but I still believe we will all be surprise in the middle of the movie because that was all the point of Nolan`s insistence in secrecy. I am just careful not to put my hope to high, So I can enjoy The RISE Of THE BAT. :)

          • I hear. Let’s hope that there are still surprises in store.

  2. You found my weakness. SMALL KNIVES!!! (on the bottom of shoes)

  3. Rubber muscle suit lol

    • So…you have some kind of rubber muscle fetish??? It’s practically the only thing on which you CONSTANTLY comment…

      • ^ lol xD

  4. I’ve just noticed on the Bane graffiti poster,
    The bat symble is in between his eyes.
    ..or maybe it’s just my eyes seeing that.

  5. He’s standing on a crucifix. That’s AWESOME.

  6. Don’t really like the new poster. IMO it’s even worse than the previous one, but at this point a poster doesn’t matter – AT ALL.
    Can’t wait!
