It's actually far more interesting they're using the Knockin' on Heaven's Door subtitle at all. That's the entire title of the film in Japan. Here in the West they've avoided using the "Knockin' on Heaven's Door" subtitle because of Bob Dylan.

Sometimes I feel like this thread is 50% the cover and 50% that the movie even exists.

It sounds like a minor variation of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure situation, where story arcs and characters are named after musicians and song titles!

The poster wasn't winning any awards, but why make it worse?:

It's great to see the marketing department has managed to continue to hide that pesky wheelchair, too.

Keaton looking a heck of a lot like a detailed cutaway to Powdered Toast Man here

It took me actual seconds to figure out where the hand on Pfeifer's head was coming from

I didn't realize that was a hand until reading your post, I thought it was a strange appendage to her head gear!

It's coming from The Penguin's hat and going straight through Keaton's head. I suppose it's another plot to kill Batman.

Same here. I've never seen the movie, so I thought perhaps the claw thing was affixed to her hood. Even if so, I guess that wouldn't be any sillier than Batman's latex breast augmentation.

It's also rather convenient that Penguin's umbrella has a notch cut out of it so his face isn't at all obscured.

Striking image of Lawrence, combined with... someone... running(?)... in a tunnel of some kind.
