Re: Something to ponder: The Dark Knight isn't all that much about Bat

While I think Ledger's Joker is receiving a lot of hype, for a couple of reasons - of course his death, but before that because people are rather amazed that anyone would follow Jack Nicholson - though that baffles me since his Joker was pretty weak IMHO. It was the exact opposite of what Ledger's performance is being reported as. Ledger supposedly disappears into the role, which an actor should do with something as elemental as Joker, whereas in Batman '89 it wasn't Joker but Jack Nicholson as the Joker!

However, the reviews I've seen from respected critics have made plenty enough reference to Bruce Wayne's development for me to have few fears that the movie will actually be about Batman. Every interview I've read from Christopher Nolan and Christian Bale are all about what happens to Batman as a character, for which Joker is a means to an end. Recall the hype of Ra's al Ghul for Batman Begins. And that movie was completely about Batman.

Ledger's tragic death is going to continue to draw media attention. Who cares? The media isn't the movie.

Trailers Before The Dark Knight

Over at JoBlo, they have a listing of a few of the trailers that will be before The Dark Knight.

It will have a trailer for Body of Lies, Terminator 4 and Watchmen, all of which I am pretty excited to see. Now, herein lies the rub. I have tickets to see the movie in IMAX, which if I remember correctly, they don't show the same trailers, but I don't remember. Does anyone know if they will show these trailers before the IMAX version or no?

Cuts made from IMAX version of The Dark Knight?

Is it true that the IMAX format allows for only two hour films or some such, thus resulting in the removal of a half hour from TDK?

No. That was only for Attack of the Clones and Apollo 13. Newer IMAX projectors don't require cuts at all. Superman Returns wasn't cut.

Thanks, LL. I'm going to try and find a nearby IMAX now, if I can.

"The Dark Knight" Megathread (USE THIS YOU RUBES)

Spiff and I have noticed over the last week or so that every time anyone has a question about The Dark Knight, there's a new thread about it. "Will it be cut for IMAX?" "There's a new Dark Knight TV spot!" "New pictures from The Dark Knight!" "What trailers will be in front of the movie?" "There's another new review of the movie out!"

I say thee, nay.

From here on out, use this thread for all miscellaneous discussion regarding The Dark Knight (As housekeeping, I'm merging several existing threads into this one, as well). This is the megathread for the movie. For reviews of the movie, there's Agent Richard07's Grading thread on the first page of this forum. For everything else, use this!

Or else.

Ooooorrrrrrrrrr....

You guys could just make a Comicbook forum already. To cover all comicbook films, movies, shows, the comics themselves, what not.

I feel compelled to point out, though, that the reason so many start new topics for such, is because many people will not SEE whatever new has occured unless it's a new topic; people stop reading multi-page topics after a point.

I'm starting to get swept up in the excitement for this movie.

However...if this movie doesn't feature a boner crime, I'm walking out and demanding my money back!
