Yesterday Warner Bros released a real dog of a poster for The Dark Knight Rises. Today they've unleashed a horde of new posters to make up for it. The domestic ones are pretty good, while the international ones suck - but not as bad as yesterday's poster! It's all in your perspective.
All of the posters continue the modern trend of having as much extraneous shit flying around the image as possible. In this case we have rain and snow. There's more crud in the domestic posters, some sort of debris coming off everybody's shoulders. I don't know if that's a metaphor or just a marketing exec demanding more busy crap in the image.
