Lost in Translation: The Dark Knight

It looks all white and snowy, so let's just use that excuse to post this today!  Good thinking, me!

The Dark Knight was a blockbuster success bigger than anyone could have imagined.  Part of it was due to the mystique of Heath Ledger's performance as The Joker.  We can't ever say if it would have done better or worse if he was alive (since only one can logically happen).

Regardless, the focus was all on him for this Foreign Poster...
Giant Joker is on the loose!  It's like that Superfriends Episode where Toyman grew him, Bizarro, Captain Cold and Sinestro to 100-foot tall!  Given that this was the Japanese Poster, maybe they thought it would be too.

Could you imagine if something like that had happened in a Nolan film?  That would have been awesome!

I may be alone in that sentiment.
