HITTING THE STREETS: Dark Knight Rises Footpath Art Installs Vertigo

This week, I'll probably wrap my eyes around The Dark Knight Rises' popcorn accompanying goodness for one more time on the big screen, just to remember what 'awesome' is like in high definition. Over in Madrid, Spain, the blockbuster was partially promoted by this stunning 3-D street art spectacular, that actually allows you to step out into the destructive skyline, used in the movies promotion.

I don't know about you, but I'm thinking a photo of standing on that ledge is worth knocking up on the mantle. Granpop doesn't need to be there anyway.

 What do you think? 


  1. can't believe nobody's commented here yet this is awesome. somebody else sketched it out i added the color to it by the way.

  2. In the immortal words of Liz Lemon, "I want to go there."

    How cool would it be to stand there, take a picture, and then post the bad boy on the 'net?

    Pretty damn sweet I'd imagine.

  3. I thought you were Dave ;D I think it would be a pretty crazy shot to take too. Just shows how popular Dark Knight Rises is though. Avengers had a huge run but the only post that rose here was the review which was my biggest rating post of all for weeks.

    Now I looked at the rankings as I logged in today and so many posts regarding DKR have taken huge jumps, two right up inside the top four as you can see on the right. Just makes me think, what's better a comic movie that does masses or a comic movie that gets masses investigating the source material...?

  4. Dan, speaking of fan art of all different sorts of mediums check out what i posted today on the SS blog.

  5. That's rather wonderful. I've seen some of these pieces of street art on my travels elsewhere but this one is truly stunning and very disarming.

  6. Glad you liked it too Robert! Hopefully it's still there now, but Mother Nature might have had something to say about that by now...
