150ft The Dark Knight Rises Ad in Manhattan Generates Mad Hype

New York City recently received the biggest 'Batman: The Dark Knight Rises' ad. At 150ft tall, this mural is a big reminder that the blockbuster movie is being released this Friday, July 20th.

The Dark Knight Rises ad was painted by hand on a wall at 315 Park Avenue South in Manhattan. This wall has been the site of colossal advertisements for nearly two decades now and this design will certainly be one of its most memorable. The wall is repainted every six to eight weeks, which is no easy task.

The Dark Knight Rises will likely be one of the biggest movies of all time. I am willing to bet that it will smash a couple records if the movie's advertising budget has any correlation. Stats for Handmade Colossal Movie Posters Trending: Older & Popular
