Warner Bros. just released the new The Dark Knight Rises movie poster and, boy, is everyone talking about it. For good reason, of course. That shot of Gotham City crumbling - revealing a bat shape in the sky is crazy cool.

We love what SlashFilm had to say:
"Is Gotham being destroyed or rebuilt? Is that debris falling or, as the title suggests, rising? The composition also suggests a Gotham citizen looking up and seeing the outline of a bat as the only bright sky (and it isn’t even particularly bright) against the devastation of Gotham, implying that Batman gets his redemption and a truly heroic end to this trilogy. But there is so much damage — that’s not quite the dream of redemption and heroism that many of us might have.”

Sure, it feels a little like Inception's posters (same dark feel) but if this doesn't make you excited about Nolan's next movie, I don't know what will. (To the digital artist(s) behind this: "Great job! You have some mad Photoshop skills.")

The Dark Knight Rises hits theaters July 20, 2012. (Yes, sadly, that's a whole year plus some away.)
