The viral for Inception was really cool, dont think they can do something like that here.

Inception had a viral?

Or do you mean those games that I gave up playing after the first one after it was clear I could just wait and see the new poster without putting any effort into it? :P

Yeah, you can't just release new trailers/posters through viral marketing and expect it to be memorable. There has to be a story behind it.

Hmm...why not, because TDK had such a cheesy viral and Inception was top? Nope.

TDK had like 15 fake websites all pretending that Gotham was a real place. Inception had like...3? And they all weren't that interesting.

backwards, I actually found that viral campaign for TDK pretty lame, the Inception viral made me wanna know more about dream sharing and stuff so I was really exited about the world that was going to be introduced on the movie.

Obviously, since Inception was an original film it would've attracted more attention because people had no idea what/who to expect. For TDKR, people already know it's Batman, a recognized comic book hero, against <insert villian here>. Inception was a journey into DREAMS, places where people have never been before. TDKR is a journey into GOTHAM, a familiar place, which is a missing billboard away from being Downtown Chicago. :problem:

I think that's why Nolan wants new antagonists. Recycling old ideas becomes boring.
