The Dark Knight Rises - Awesome Fan-Made Posters

Posted by Grey Saturday, July 21, 2012

July 19th has come and gone. In a depart to our earlier solemn tone regarding the final chapter of Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy, we take a moment to mourn the lives lost in the Aurora shooting while taking a more light-hearted look at the critically-acclaimed film with the awesome fan-made posters.

As mentioned in our earlier preview of The Dark Knight Rises, we have proceed accordingly with our appointment at the première of the concluding chapter in Christopher Nolan's epic Batman trilogy. And the film was indeed awesome. But to what extent and does it compare favorably to its two critically acclaimed predecessors? We will cover all that on our review on the film later.

In the meantime, we would like to send our condolences to the families and friends of the victims in the tragic incident that happened during the midnight premiere of The Dark Knight Rises in a Cinemark movie theater in Aurora, Colorado. For the uninformed, a gunman who has now been identified as one James Eagan Holmes opened fire at the audience during the event, killing 12 people and injuring 58 others.

In response to the tragedy, Warner Bros. Pictures has canceled the film's Paris gala premiere and will not report box office figures for the movie until the upcoming Monday (July 23, 2012). Director Christopher Nolan has released the following statement:

"Speaking on behalf of the cast and crew of The Dark Knight Rises, I would like to express our profound sorrow at the senseless tragedy that has befallen the entire Aurora community. I would not presume to know anything about the victims of the shooting, but that they were there last night to watch a movie. I believe movies are one of the great American art forms and the shared experience of watching a story unfold on screen is an important and joyful pastime. The movie theatre is my home, and the idea that someone would violate that innocent and hopeful place in such an unbearably savage way is devastating to me. Nothing any of us can say could ever adequately express our feelings for the innocent victims of this appalling crime, but our thoughts are with them and their families."

Speaking to CBS News, Batman himself, Christian Bale, has spoken as well:

"Words cannot express the horror that I feel. I cannot begin to truly understand the pain and grief of the victims and their loved ones, but my heart goes out to them."

The appalling attack has since been confirmed to be the largest mass shooting in the history of the United States in terms of casualties.

We move on with a switch of tone in celebration of the film's release with a look at this unidentified piece with some entry level Photoshop skills but some nifty humor. Back away, Spider-Man.

Courtesy of Lebanese Movie Guide, here's an amazing fan-made banner with Bane being the focus of the piece.

Finally, in line with the first set of character posters of which Batman, Catwoman, and Bane stood still under the heavy downpour of rain and debris with the background message of "RISE", here are some unidentified yet pretty humorous pieces where other members of the cast followed suit for their very own entries in the set. We have everyone from James Gordon, Miranda Tate, to even Matthew Modine, and Christopher Nolan himself and a possible spoiler character that we placed last in an effort to warn readers.

We will show you the original posters before the knock-offs.

And here are the unidentified knock-offs.

And in an awesome ensemble, the cast assembled for a cool group photo shot as everyone stood still in the heavy rain and debris.

The official synopsis of the film:

Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ “The Dark Knight Rises” is the epic conclusion to filmmaker Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy.

It has been eight years since Batman vanished into the night, turning, in that instant, from hero to fugitive. Assuming the blame for the death of D.A. Harvey Dent, the Dark Knight sacrificed everything for what he and Commissioner Gordon both hoped was the greater good. For a time the lie worked, as criminal activity in Gotham City was crushed under the weight of the anti-crime Dent Act.

But everything will change with the arrival of a cunning cat burglar with a mysterious agenda. Far more dangerous, however, is the emergence of Bane, a masked terrorist whose ruthless plans for Gotham drive Bruce out of his self-imposed exile. But even if he dons the cape and cowl again, Batman may be no match for Bane.

Leading an all-star international cast, Oscar(R) winner Christian Bale (“The Fighter”) again plays the dual role of Bruce Wayne/Batman. The film also stars Anne Hathaway, as Selina Kyle; Tom Hardy, as Bane; Oscar(R) winner Marion Cotillard (“La Vie en Rose”), as Miranda Tate; and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, as John Blake. Returning to the main cast, Oscar(R) winner Michael Caine (“The Cider House Rules”) plays Alfred; Gary Oldman is Commissioner Gordon; and Oscar(R) winner Morgan Freeman (“Million Dollar Baby”) reprises the role of Lucius Fox. The screenplay is written by Christopher Nolan and Jonathan Nolan, story by Christopher Nolan & David S. Goyer. The film is produced by Emma Thomas, Christopher Nolan and Charles Roven, who previously teamed on “Batman Begins” and the record-breaking blockbuster “The Dark Knight.” The executive producers are Benjamin Melniker, Michael E. Uslan, Kevin De La Noy and Thomas Tull, with Jordan Goldberg serving as co-producer. The film is based upon characters appearing in comic books published by DC Comics. Batman was created by Bob Kane.
