TDK Today!

12.01.2007

The Today Show has landed a DARK KNIGHT exclusive, where their boy Al Roker heads to Gotham City a.k.a the Chicago set of THE DARK KNIGHT to take a peek at the shooting festivities and to talk Batman with Chris Bale, Chris Nolan, and Aaron Eckhart, who gives us the Harvey Dent lowdown in case you didn’t know. There’s some cool footage of Batman speaking to Lucius Fox (Morgan Freeman) and you get a pretty good look at the new suit. Also, check out the picture they cut to when Heath Ledger’s name is mentioned—it’s a fan-made mock up of him as the Joker that was on the net long before the first official photo was released. Check out the video BELOW, and I don’t have to tell you when THE DARK KNIGHT is being released, because if you don’t know now, you will soon.

HELLO, THEHARDTRUTH...

I'm not sure why you decided to lash out at me for a post that had nothing to do with you, but I'm glad you did, if for no other reason than the chuckle I got from reading your juvenile put-downs.

Did I take seriously a comment meant to be tongue-in-cheek? Certainly, and I felt like an ass once I realized my mistake.

But, you taking the time to belittle me for simply misinterpreting an Extra Tidbit makes you look like an even bigger ass. So, from one 5-year old to another, thanks for the

Joker Pic

This may be old news on this thread, but still an interesting bit of info. The photo shown as the Joker is Conrad Viedt as Gwynplaine, the main character in "The Man Who Laughs". The film is about a young prince who is kidnapped and tortured by his captors. They cut his mouth into into a wide grin. He escapes, joins a travelling sideshow and waits for his moment of revenge. Here's the interesting part - That character was in fact Bob Kane's inspiration for the Joker! So, somebody at the Today

Not So Extra Tidbit

So, Ben has decided to spill major plot points about The Dark Knight by sneaking them into the Extra Tidbits section? Either this is one of the biggest jerk moves I've ever witnessed or it's just another fuck-with-the-readers bad joke. If the former is true, Ben has not only alienated this fan from reading his future posts, but the entire website altogether. Who wants one of the biggest cinematic events to come down the pike in ages ruined by some big mouth? Ben, what is so hard about
So, Ben has decided to spill major plot points about The Dark Knight by sneaking them into the Extra Tidbits section? Either this is one of the biggest jerk moves I've ever witnessed or it's just another fuck-with-the-readers bad joke. If the former is true, Ben has not only alienated this fan from reading his future posts, but the entire website altogether. Who wants one of the biggest cinematic events to come down the pike in ages ruined by some big mouth? Ben, what is so hard about simply reporting the news minus spoilers? Do us all a favor and learn the difference between an Extra Tidbit and a full-on spoiler. Because as great as you think your words might be, you are not the person I want telling me the story of Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight. You report news about the filming and release of a movie, and let the filmmakers tell and reveal the actual plot points. Period! If this is a joke, then I take back the above rant except to say, "Learn some new jokes because this shit isn't funny."

Nice

I'd be lying to say this wasn't cool. The "joker" pic was a nice touch too. I'm really looking forward to this movie and the potential of the series. Lets hope they don't go the path of the first ones and screw up the 3rd and 4th.

The suit defiatly seems like they'll get better fight sequences in this on then the other ones, seen as he can actualy move in it. An he definatly looks thinner in the suit after they took all that flab away.

awesome.

The more I see the new suit, the more I'm liking it. Does Bale look a tad bit more thin this time around to anyone else?

Further regards to the accent...

It's in the actor's handbook that when you're playing a character with an accent, you use that accent for however long you work on that film or play. It's just the best way to keep the accent natural.

As far as this clip is concerned, the costume just looks fucking great. I love it, I love Bale, Nolan, Caine, Freeman, Eckhart, Gyllenhall, Ledger... just everyone that's involved is at the peak of their careers. I cannot wait for July 18th.

accent

yeah, Bale always stays in the accent of his character on set and off throughout principle photography. It's a pretty flawless american accent though, I'll give him that.

fake Joker

I found the original image. It's actually from a movie from 1928 called, appropriately, "The Man Who Laughs."

fake Joker

It's actually a manip image from a movie from the 1930's or so, but yeah, I noticed the same thing. After the big "reveal" over the last week, you would think they could have found an actual Heath Ledger Joker pic to use.

WTF??

They use the fake Marilynn Manson Joker Pic for when the talk of Heath Ledger? Did ANYBODY do research?
By the way, Roker sounded totally lost at the beginning about the first movie.
