I'm sorry but that doesnt look legit for some reason. They could have easily snagged or redo thouse DC and WB logos.

plus according to IGN they havent made a decision for who will be the Joker.

The sequel to Batman Begins will be called The Dark Knight and the two villains in the film will be "The Joker" (the role has been offered to Heath Ledger) and "The Penguin" (reports say that Phillip Seymour Hoffman has been approached).

Christopher Nolan will direct the sequel and I'm guessing that Michael Caine and Gary Oldman will reprise their roles of Alfred and Capt. Gordon.

It's slated for Summer 2008.

I just read about this... was coming here to post it. So sad...... i still watch my 10 Things I Hate About You... he was a really good actor.

Watching the Dark Knight will be somewhat somber for me now... much like when i first saw The Crow.

The publicity for this movie is something else...

Check this out:
http://www.whysoserious.com/

It's all pretty much over, but just about everything on there leads to another site whose sole purpose is for this movie. I am amazed. On the 9th, the Joker gave away free IMAX ticket for a screening tomorrow. Of course, those were gone in a flash... but it is just so interesting the depth and legths they go to for this movie. I am so looking forward to it.

Maybe the studios had a hand in that? I thought traditionally the theater made all there money from concessions.

With a little patience you can own the same movie on dvd for that much or for 4-5 dollars or more, blu ray. True you don't get to see it on the huge screen with booming sound but you also you won't have to wait in line to get a decent seat. Nor walk through sticky popcorn isles. Or wonder where the BO is coming from or if the last person who sat in your seat had lice. And don't forget the parents who bring their 3 year old child and try to calm them as the Joker is shooting everybody up. (it happens sometimes)

Most definitely. Also, if you invest a little money into a surround sound system, you can have the same booming sound (maybe even better if it's properly calibrated).

Amazing. My husband and I saw it last night and we loved it. My husband was so into it that not even the fact that he had to go pee (really bad, at that) made him get up from his seat.

This Joker was WAY more screwed up than Jack Nicholson's. Heath Ledger did an amazing job. I'd see it again.

July 20th, 2008, 20:17
Mike and I saw it this morning at the Imax... 6am showing. I was speechless afterwards... it was absolutely amazing. I hardly noticed that it was as long as it was - it far exceeded my expectations and i cannot wait to go see it again. Heath Ledger completely owned that character - and thats a lot for me to say since i come from the generation that thought no one could replace Jack Nicholson (or Michael Keaton for that matter).

But of course i have always had a thing for Christian Bale - ever since i was in middle school and saw the movie/musical "Newsies" in choir class ;)

That's interesting you mentioned that. His disguised "Batman voice" was a bit over-done, but I don't remember it bothering me in Batman Begins. It seemed more noticable in The Dark Knight.

Still, an excellent movie. Had to see it at the Palladium IMAX last Friday night. Definitely worth seeing again... and again.

I saw it twice. Best batman I've ever seen.

First time I saw it was at the regular theater. Second time at the imax. It was a bit odd going back and forth between black bars and then filling the entire screen.

It was cool for both. But the one thing that bothers me about the recent trend of movies being made for the imax is the aspect ratio.

Imax is close to 4:3. Which is like the old tv aspect ratio. This is anoying as the recent trend for tvs has been going towards widescreen. Is it possible that all movies will be going to a 4:3 aspect ratio later in the future? Yeah... It'd Probably take some for that too happen.. The one thing that irks me is how the home movie experience could be going from horizontal black bars to vertical black bars. Lame..

coolian

IMAX cameras are shot in 3:4. maybe not 3:4 but something more square. TV will definately not be going back to 3:4, if anything IMAX cameras will go to widescreen.

Jeremy

Imax is shot on a 70mm film stock, the difference though is that it runs through the camera horizontally, which increases the resolution of the 70mm film by quite a bit. I'm thinking it wouldn't be too hard physically to extend the edges of the film that is exposed every second because of this, but the problem is the technically challenge of running the film through the camera so incredibly fast.

i dont think youre going to see todays version of imax become anything special in the future. high res shooting is always going to be popular but the technical aspect of imax i think is still too expensive and impractical to use. im sure soon they will be producing image sensors and cameras that can shoot the same resolutions and quality digitally.
