The Dark Knight Rises: first official poster

We’re a bit excited.

Above is the first poster released for the hugely-anticipated concluding chapter in Christopher Nolan’s Bat-saga, The Dark Knight Rises. It depicts the buildings of Gotham City crumbling and a Bat-signal forming in the sky; there’s a touch of Inception to this first teaser, you might say. Starring Christian Bale, Tom Hardy, Anne Hathaway, Gary Oldman, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Michael Caine and many more, The Dark Knight Rises will be released in cinemas and IMAX on July 20th 2012. A teaser will apparently be attached to Harry Potter when it’s released later this week.
