CHICAGO – Standing up at the Lyric Opera house in Chicago is unusual before a show. But in this case, it was the night after a tragedy, and the operetta “The Merry Widow” – set in Paris, France, in 1905 – was about to unfold. The orchestra struck up La Marseillaise, a reminder that we’ll always have Paris.
Poster Mayhem: Multiple New Posters Surface For ‘The Dark Knight’; Bootlegged Trailer Leaks
Three new posters surfaced in the last 24 hours for “The Dark Knight” and fans didn’t even have to work hard for them through viral games. The first poster is the film’s international teaser poster.
A high-resolution version of this poster can be found here. I first learned about this from Paul at this link. The international poster has also sprung up all over the Web and is now at Superhero Hype!, Omelete, Collider and /Film.
Omelete is being credited as premiering the above international teaser poster. Next in line, Allocine premiered the following international Joker poster. The high-resolution version of the Joker poster can be found here.
In a Superhero Hype! post about this Joker poster, we also see a bootlegged domestic poster now appearing in theaters.
Finally, /Film and AICN both have posts that a bootlegged version of “The Dark Knight” trailer has already been leaked onto YouTube. It’s now, of course, gone. We cited a report on Thursday saying the real deal will surface early next week. Stay tuned.
12:29 p.m. update: A new “The Dark Knight” viral Web site has just been found at http://www.atasteforthetheatrical.com that says the official trailer will be coming on Sunday, Dec. 16.
The text at ATasteForTheTheatrical.com reads:
Sunday. It’s what you have been waiting for! Sure, you can see it on display, but beginning this Sunday, you can take it home for your very own!
9:21 p.m. update: The YouTube video embedded above has been eaten again due to a copyright claim by Warner Bros. It’s still up at the links above, though, and JoBlo is also now hosting it directly.
I’ve also been e-mailed by Berge Garabedian at JoBlo with a head’s up that it can be embedded. I’ve done so below.
