And here is the third Dark Knight poster released last week, this one a domestic poster that keeps the Why So Serious campaign going on.
I find this poster a lot less exciting then the one-two punch of the international posters. Not because it’s a bad poster, it isn’t. In fact it fits very well with the whole Why So Serious part of the marketing campaign and sends the clear message that the Chris Nolan Joker is one deranged and scary clown. And it’s not as annoyingly teasy as the last domestic poster.
But the thing is, as great as the poster is, it doesn’t really add anything that I wasn’t aware of before. I think I get the kind of character that the Joker is by now. The two international posters, on the other hand, highlighted some aspects of the movie that hadn’t been explored much by the campaign so far, and because of that they made me want to see the film more then I wanted before.
I still would love to have this poster on my wall tough.
