Re: Batman:The Dark Knight
I'm usually a pretty pessimistic guy when it comes to movie hype - a lot of times, a movie will be so overhyped before it even comes out, it will inevitably be a huge letdown.
This is especially true for sequels, most of which cannot come anywhere near the movie it preceded. This is especially true for remakes, as most cannot hold a candle to the original.
I do not believe Dark Knight will see the same fate. I have not been this psyched for a movie since...well, honestly, I cannot remember the last time I was so excited to see a movie. The mystic surrounding the movie because of Ledger will be tremendous - and his portrayal of The Joker will top off a tragic life.
But, the amount of secrecy behind the job they have done on Eckhart has been remarkable - while Ledger's Joker has been shoved down our throats, Eckhart's Two Face seems to have been shrouded in forgotfulness. I just gotta feeling he might end up stealing a few scenes.
