Lucky fans who attend the midnight screening of "The Dark Knight Rises" will receive a special gift from Warner Bros. Pictures. The studio has confirmed that it will give away limited-edition posters to moviegoers who watch the IMAX screening on the opening night of the highly anticipated Batman movie.
On Tuesday, July 10, IMAX stated that ticketholders who attend the 12:01 A.M. screening of "The Dark Knight Rises" will be given an exclusive one-sheet that features Bane. The print itself presents an old-schooled, black-and-white design with the supervillain's face pictured in a very close-up shot.
In anticipation of the "Dark Knight Rises" U.S. release, Warners also unleashed a brand new trailer called "Journey". The promo compiles some iconic scenes from Christopher Nolan's previous Batman movies, "Batman Begins" and "The Dark Knight", as well as offers multiple never-before-seen footage from the upcoming final installment.
"The Dark Knight Rises" will take place eight years after the Harvey Dent case in "The Dark Knight". Terrorist leader Bane arrives in Gotham City, pushing it and its police force to their limits, as well as forcing Batman to resurface after taking the fall for Dent's crimes. Christian Bale returns as the Caped Crusader, while Tom Hardy plays the burly terrorist leader.
Nolan recently told Los Angeles Times' Hero Complex that through "The Dark Knight Rises", he wanted to create "a unified statement, a real ending, a true conclusion." To make it happen, the director involved "a cast of thousands, literally, and all of that for me is trying to represent the world in primarily visual and architectural terms." He added, "So the thematic idea is that the superficial positivity is being eaten away from underneath; we tried to make that quite literal."
