New ‘The Dark Knight’ Trailer in HD!

May 5, 2008

The Dark Knight has a new trailer up in HD! It’s precursor ‘Batman Begins’ set the standard for superhero movies thanks to director Christopher Nolan‘s vision, replacing the camp of the previous films with a darker atmosphere and a more serious, realistic theme. It’s no surprise that the sequel ‘The Dark Knight’ is the most anticipated movie of 2008 as I’m sure people can’t wait to see their take on Batman’s archnemesis, the Joker.

Heath Ledger’s take on the Joker is terrifyingly unbelievable, with his unsettling appearance and that freaky laughter. I’m sure a lot of kids will be scared shitless by him. There’s a couple of new stuff in the trailer too, such as Harvey Dent’s transformation into the villian Two-Face. I’m also liking the new Batman score though nothing’s still as iconic as the one used in the Burton films.

Another thing I loved about The Dark Knight is it’s excellent viral marketing campaign, it really helps develop the theme and characters of the movie and makes you feel more immersed in it. Well it does seem like this movie will be a even bigger success than “Begins”, and will definitely be one of the biggest movies of the year (next to Iron Man anyway :D)!

The Dark Knight stars Christian Bale, Heath Legder, Aaron Eckhart, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Micheal Caine, Gary Oldman and Morgan Freeman.
