Parting Shot: Awesome ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ Billboard in Hollywood

Spotted earlier today on the corner of Sunset and La Brea in Hollywood, California, this new billboard advertisement for The Dark Knight Rises achieves a new level of inescapable coolness in an already proud tradition of Batman-related movie advertisements. This is very arguably the cleverest of the designers’ numerous tricks to form the Bat symbol, and it’s been captured in grand Instagramitc fashion by Rob Sheridan, a photographer, designer and illustrator whose work you’ve seen across the all 21st century releases from Nine Inch Nails, for whom Sheridan serves as Creative Director. We’ve spotlighted his excellent artwork before on ComicsAlliance, and Sheridan gave us permission to publish this Batman photo today. Check the full image after the jump.


Based on DC Comics characters created by Bob Kane, Bill Finger, Doug Moench, Chuck Dixon, Graham Nolan and others, The Dark Knight Rises is the third and final film of director Christopher Nolan’s hugely popular and very acclaimed (by us) Batman cycle. The film stars Christian Bale, Anne Hathaway, Tom Hardy, Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Gary Oldman, the film opens in the U.S. on July 20.
