The Cadbury Bournville - TDKR integration comes to life with special brand packaging, in-store branding, on-ground activities, and television and cinema campaigns. The campaign has been designed and created to ensure engagement across all touch points to reach out to fans of the movie franchise as well as Bournville loyalists.

Additionally, there is a Bournville‘s digital campaign especially created for the TDKR association. The digital campaign has been brought to life with an online contest that aims to add to the wave of anticipation and excitement with the legion of movie buffs and dark chocolate fans.

Cadbury India director - snacking and strategy Chandramouli Venkatesan said, "As the fans await the movie of the year to be released in India, we plan to take the ‘The Dark Knight Rises‘ release to greater heights and even greater excitement among Bournville consumers. The movie characterises strong feeling of emotions among youth, something that Bournville lovers are known for. The Bournville brand fit with the Dark Knight franchise cannot be any better than this. It‘s like the Dark Knight really has a "Dark" companion in India."

The Dark Knight has taken centre stage on Cadbury Bournville‘s Facebook page, with contests and gave 100 "lucky" fans prizes.

The digital campaign also features a 30-second commercial viewed on Cadbury Bournville‘s official YouTube channel.
