Dark Knight

I read somewhere that some lucky punks got to see the first 6 or so minutes of the movie. If anyone knows where you can watch it (it's gotta be online somewhere) then post it so we can see.

Interesting.

I'm suprised no one had anything to say about the news story I linked to.

Rotten Tomatoes says:

"The much-ballyhooed IMAX intro to The Dark Knight has had its premiere screening -- and IGN Movies was there to tell the tale!The six-minute intro, which will be attached to IMAX screenings of I Am Legend starting December 14th, was unveiled Wednesday night, and IGN Movies has posted the details. We won't share 'em all here, but let's run down a few of the high points:1. It begins with the first few minutes of the film, which introduce Heath Ledger's Joker to the audience.2. A bank heist is involved.3. William Fichtner sighting!4. Explosions! Gunfire!5. It ends with a series of clips of Batman in action.To read a more detailed rundown, click on the first link below -- either before or after you click on the second link, which will lead you to IGN's in-depth interview with Dark Knight director Christopher Nolan. Don't expect a ton of new information -- Nolan's no dummy -- but nestled among the expected quotes (Heath Ledger's performance will amaze us, Nolan isn't concerned with the Justice League of America movie, et cetera), you'll find a few interesting tidbits, such as:We never wanted to do an origin story for the Joker in this film. The arc of the story is much more Harvey Dent's; the Joker is presented as an absolute. It's a very thrilling element in the film, and a very important element, but we wanted to deal with the rise of the Joker not the origin of the Joker, if that makes sense.To read more, click below!Source: IGN Movies"

I didn't say anything because I didn't read it. I read the spoilerific article CBR had that goes through the 6 minute clip and from what I saw there, it looked good. http://www.comicbookresources.com/news/newsitem.cgi?id=12535

One of the IGN links (in the Rotten Tomatoes story) had a blow by blow account as well and there's an interview with Chris Nolan.

On a side note, I was looking at the coments of an interview with Nolan and Bale on Youtube and one of them was "why are they speaking with British accents?" I wasn't sure whether to laugh or cry.

Because they're both British...

All we've seen is pictures of the joker... that's not enough to judge a performance either way, and Batman and the gun? Look in the picture. I saw one with like four guys dressed like Batman... so my guess is the guy you saw isn't really Batman. Don't bash it till you see it, Chris hasn't let us down yet...

Yes, they are. The thing I found funny wasn't that they didn't know, but that someone watched the interview and thought it was for some other reason. Perhaps an "in joke" they had, or were doing a bit for the interview. This is the interview:

All of my doubts about Heath Ledger as the Joker have been erased. I am ashamed I ever doubted.

That looks cool. Is that Agent Mahone from Prison Break taking out the Joker's goons with a shot gun? Sweet.
