Now this is a poster. This is probably one of the greatest posters we've seen all year (click on the image above for a larger version). Why was this the international poster? Doesn't really matter, though, because regardless of whether it's domestic or international, the poster still exists and it still kicks a whole lotta ass. Yup, that's Batman looking over the city he's supposed to protect. You can look at this image from a few different angles; the way I see it, the evil in Gotham City is growing so large, it's almost consuming the one man there to protect it. Like The windows look like a prison cell, as if the caped crusader is being held hostage inside his own home. Man, I love it. And, additionally, after the jump we have another poster featuring the Joker. Both marketing materials are marvelous to look out, with this one up top being my favorite. The new trailer for The Dark Knight has also leaked online, but it's of the crappy shot-in-the-theater variety. And you don't want to watch it. Trust me. Feel free to search around for it, but if you ask me, hang out for the HD version which is sure to arrive online within the next day or so. You'll be happy you waited. The Dark Knight arrives in theaters on July 18.
