The Dark Knight Rises posterWith its release less than three months away, Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises is expected to be the biggest blockbuster of the summer. The official website has just launched what looks to be a massive new global viral campaign, asking you to help apprehend the vigilante known as “The Batman.”

If you’re living in North America, South America, Europe, or Asia, be sure to check the addresses below to see if you can get involved. (If you’re reading this in the UK, targeted cities are London, Brighton, Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds, and Birmingham.)

“Submit photographic evidence of graffiti related to any movement in support of the vigilante’s return. Make sure that location services or store location is on in your camera settings. Report any and all information pertaining to the investigation to the designated contact (#tdkr07202012 or tdkr07202012@gothampolicedepartment.com).”

Directing from a script co-written by himself and his brother Jonathan Nolan, with a story by himself and David S. Goyer, Nolan returns for one final instalment of his Batman trilogy, with an immense cast of familiar and fresh faces, of course including Christian Bale as the eponymous Dark Knight, Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine, Anne Hathaway, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard, Juno Temple, and Joey King.

The plot details have been kept closely guarded (which is awesome in my books), and so we don’t have any real specifics about what the film will be about. But you just know it’s going to be incredible.

A third trailer is expected to hit by the end of the week, but until then, here are the new images from the viral campaign, followed by the list of addresses you’ll want to be looking out for after reading page four of the five images below. Good luck! (And if you’d like to play catch up, you can check out all our coverage of the film so far right here.)
