Check out this collection of posters from Toronto-based artist, Ryan Luckoo. According to his deviantART page, he wanted to create some images for the most anticipated movies of 2012, and I think he nailed it. Of these three, I think the most striking is the one for The Dark Knight Rises. I like the way he combines Bane, Batman and Gotham City into one instantly recognizable symbol – and it perfectly conveys the serious, dark tone of the Christopher Nolan trilogy. To see more of Luckoo’s work, click on his name below each image.
