Despite the preposterous notion of ‘a man dressed as a bat’, for decades Batman has inspired some truly moody and sometimes beautiful art. Christopher Nolan’s trilogy of films is perhaps the best of these.

Check out this triptych poster which encapsulates Nolan’s three films. Simple concept. Brilliant execution. I do like the official teaser poster for The Dark Knight Rises but I like this one even more. Mmmm, yummy.
And in case you’ve been living in a cave under your mansion for the past week, here’s the teaser trailer. To be honest, I think the teaser is rather paltry but, if it’s just a reminder for everyone who already wants to go see this movie, then it’s done its duty.
The Dark Knight Rises will be released July 2012 and — Holy long waits, Batman! — I’m already psyched. The buzz is already crazy (as of this posting, IMDb has aggregated 4657 articles online about a film that’s still a year away), so I sincerely hope this movie doesn’t suffer Phantom Menace Syndrome.
