The Dark Knight Rises Poster is Out and Looks Strangely Familiar
The first poster for The Dark Knight Rises is out and it looks great but also terribly familiar.
The Dark Knight and Inception were two mega hits that created massive buzz and needless to say that Studio, critique and audience are waiting to see what director Christopher Nolan is going to come up with to keep up with the level of quality and surprise provided in his two precedent films.
It seems that for Nolan, part of the solution resides in merging past successful equations. Gordon-Levitt, Cotillard and Hardy, all three coming from Inception, joined the actors remaining from The Dark Knight for the third Batman installment under Nolan take.
As for the familiar iconography of the new poster, Warner Bros probably chose a clear visual reference to Inception within the Batman world to remind to a mainstream audience that the same man stands behind DiCaprio‘s dream induced journey and the reboot of the Batman franchise.
Below is a snapshot of the Imdb cast of the movie. Anne Hathaway, who plays Catwoman, is the only newcomer with a key role to join the Nolan family. The Dark Knight Rises will be out Summer 2012.
Let’s see if Nolan’s penchant for conservative mathematics will play in his favor.
