Movie Posters:

Posters, posters and more posters for this one. As is to be expected after the first film, some great stuff out there.

First off the US Advance One Sheet, rolled and double sided.

Next the Joker Advance One Sheet, rolled and double sided. At the time of Ledgers death there was talk going around that this one had been recalled. However from talk on forums from people running cinemas at the time, this is not the case. The poster was just replaced with the next in line for the release. Fakes abound, so be wary.

Third is the International Release One Sheet, rolled and double sided. This is my favourite for the release. A visually stunning poster.

Next up...hmmm...what to say...I have no idea. I've heard it called a Wilding and I've heard it called a "special release" whatever that means. Paper stock on this poster is thicker than a regular One Sheet. Yes, it's rolled and single sided like you would expect with a wilding, but I find it difficult to believe they would print on thicker paper. I am undecided at this point but open to information on it should anyone have any.

Next two are both US One Sheets, rolled and double sided.

Lastly an Australian promo poster, rolled and single sided for a special Candy Bar themed popcorn (yummy) purchase geared around the movie. Not a movie poster really, but ah well, fits in with the film :)
