“Why So Serious ?”
Designed by Intralink Film Graphic Design offered here is a genuine ‘First Advance Teaser’ design, double sided US One Sheet (‘Graffiti style) from the blockbuster movie of 2008, “The Dark Knight”, the incredibly successful sequel to Batman Begins and (for the one & only time) Heath Ledger’s show stopping turn as ‘The Joker’. Set against brickwork the imagery shows a ‘graffiti’ design of ‘The Joker’s’ face using a bloodied batarang for the mouth…a very clever poster. The gritty look is perfectly rendered allowing for the central bat logo to draw the eye. Originally rolled (as issued) this excellent film poster presents and displays to very good effect and represents a truly desirable piece of original Batman movie memorabilia from a trilogy that has become one of the most collectible and popular modern movie franchises.
Trivia: The Joker’s mask during the initial bank robbery is almost exactly the same as the mask worn by Cesar Romero when hijacking a performance of Pagliacci in the original Batman(1966) television series.…more detail
