After what seemed like an eternity of keeping The Dark Knight on hush, Christopher Nolan recently screened the first six minutes of the Batman Begins sequel to a small group of lucky bastards in New York. What's more, the new movie poster is out, as well as some pretty cool publicity shots of Heath Ledger as the Joker. We nerds are salivating rabidly for this film, as the Joker is definitely not going to be "ha-ha" funny. Instead Ledger portrays the Joker as what actor Michael Caine describes as, "an absolutely maniacal murderous psychopath. You have never seen anything like it in your life. He is very, very scary."
For all the comic book illiterates out there, please refer to The Killing Joke to see what he means. Then go see I Am Legend next week, not to see Will Smith battle mutant vampires, but to watch the first six minutes of The Dark Knight in all its psychotic glory. -- Oscar Pascual
