The Dark Knight Rises Teaser Poster
What's crazy is that when I first saw the image, the huge picture of the bat did not immediately jump out at me. Maybe that says more about me than it does for the poster but, regardless. I will attribute that to a wonderful subtlety that allows the genius of this image to sneak up on you.
Compared to other teaser posters for high-profile movies, this poster really pulls off both concept and execution. For example, I remember first seeing the Star Wars Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith teaser poster. The concept of that poster was fantastic: showing the connection between Anakin and Darth Vader by having the folds in Anakin's cape melt into Vader's helmet. But the execution... Not so great.
