THE DARK KNIGHT RISES Open Edition Mondo Poster by Olly Moss on Sale Today
Published: July 18, 2012 - 8:24am
Scheduled for theatrical release this summer, The Dark Knight Rises is the third and final film in director Chris Nolan's Batman trilogy and stars Christian Bale, Tom Hardy and Anne Hathaway. The new Olly Moss designed poster, for the first time in Mondo's history, will be available online to everyone July 18th at MondoTees.com for 24 hours.
It has been eight years since Batman vanished into the night, turning, in that instant, from hero to fugitive. Assuming the blame for the death of D.A. Harvey Dent, the Dark Knight sacrificed everything for what he and Commissioner Gordon both hoped was the greater good. For a time the lie worked, as criminal activity in Gotham City was crushed under the weight of the anti-crime Dent Act.
But everything will change with the arrival of a cunning cat burglar with a mysterious agenda. Far more dangerous, however, is the emergence of Bane, a masked terrorist whose ruthless plans for Gotham drive Bruce out of his self-imposed exile. But even if he dons the cape and cowl again, Batman may be no match for Bane.
