    Rise And Rise Again: Batman, Catwoman & Bane In Three New Posters For 'The Dark Knight Rises'

    Ah, character posters. Once an innovative spin on movie marketing, now they're dragged out needlessly for any film on release. Want Jonny Lee Miller in "Dark Shadows" hanging on your wall? Or Alexander Skarsgard in "Battleship?" You got it. We've never seen any evidence of a Tom Wilkinson one-sheet ...
