Next July can't get here soon enough. The smart and stylish filmmaker Christopher Nolan, who directed BATMAN BEGINS (as well as MEMENTO, INSOMNIA, and THE PRESTIGE), is back on board as helmer on THE DARK KNIGHT. Christian Bale is back in the bat suit and Heath Ledger is the new Joker. It's almost unfair that we all have to wait for next July to see this bad-boy! I have heard that the first 6-7 minutes of the film will be shown infront of prints of I AM LEGEND on IMAX screens next week when the Will Smith action flick opens nationwide.
