"THE GODFATHER" of Comic Book Movies?

YES.

Heath Ledger's final performance
is already being compared to Al Pacino's
unforgettable Michael Corleone masterpiece.



It seems that Director Christopher Nolan
has used Batman and the Joker as hypnotic metaphors
for the essence of evil and the need for heroes
in our post-9/11 world,

and this resonates in the poster below,
a chilling allusion to the World Trade Center.




I am definitely watching this on IMAX
when it opens on July 17, 2008!!!




"The haunting and visionary Dark Knight
soars on the wings of untamed imagination.

It's full of surprises you don't see coming.
And just try to get it out of your dreams."

> Peter Travers, Rolling Stone



"A lesson in filmmaking if there ever was one...

there are moments in film history when everything is pushed aside
and performance exceeds genre.

We could call this THE GODFATHER of comic book movies."

> Brad Brevet, Ropes of Silicon



"Six sequences were filmed with IMAX cameras,
including the opening six minutes,
which represent bravura filmmaking.

This marks the first time ever that a major feature film
has been even partially shot using IMAX cameras,
in what is an intriguing integration of the two formats."

Oh yeah. I can't wait to see this film. Christian Bale's the best Bruce Wayne everrrrr. And of coruse there's the mystique of the Joker, even more magnified by Heath's tragic passing. :( Ah well, this will be a blockbuster 100x over.

I want to see this! Tnak God, they ditched Katie Holmes and opted for the subtle, yet effective Maggie Gyllenhaal!
