The Dark Knight

I really like the newest poster for the upcoming The Dark Knight movie. The marketing and PR teams at Warner Brothers probably had a say in the final layout, but I think the poster would have been just as successful without The Dark Knight title at the bottom. The font usage is consistent throughout all of The Dark Knight promotional materials, but in this case, it just doesn’t seem to integrate as well as in some of the other posters. I will give it up for the designer / illustrator though, because I dig the Batman symbol that is created using handwritten text behind The Dark Knight title — excellent touch.
