Want this movie now.

Theres a place on your face that can save the human race, its called a smile, the positivity that it creates takes awhile, but the grin will turn an inch into a mile.

If you haven't seen the trailer for this being shown in front of "I Am Legend" you need to. Heath Ledger is making the Joker fucking creepy as hell, like serial killer creepy. This movie is going to own.

Someone online had the trailer filmed from their camera phone. I don't have a link.

I dug it up, but it's crappy quality, so I closed out. I'll wait.

I think he'll be good now though, but I never saw Joker as a serial killer. More like a crazy anarchist.

Not to derail, but I'm curious how that car smashing effect works (right in the beginning of the trailer)

The trailer looks cool though.

The stunt, where he lands on the car at the beginning of the trailer. Just curious. Seems simple, but I don't think I've seen it before... With a live body at least.

Looks like a straightforward replacement roof with crumple zones...

Either that or it's slowed down film after they fired Mr Bale from a cannon above camera so he hit the roof really fast and really hard.

Cool effect tho.

Most likely to be CG composite of heavy weight landing on car chassis and windows mixed with live action wire fall onto a blue screened box.  Means they could do multiple takes of the fall and landing itself without having to go through several rigged cars.  My bet is that the shattering glass, at least, is all CG.

Not the best quality, but oh my god does it make the Joker look awesome. I had several nerdgasms even if I couldn't hear what they were saying.

Interesting. They were actually pretty old school about real stunts, sets, and models in the last film (just the gotham set alone is amazing). I think just a few things were CGI, like cityscape shots, the Wayne building... I wouldn't be surprised if a little gag like the above is more trouble than it's worth though, so maybe you're right.

So, watched the trailer and bootleg footage.  I think, based on a description of the same footage I read in a magazine or something somewhere, that that's the first few minutes of the film, so if so, it looks to be a great beginning.  Summer is too far away now. 

And I have to say, initially I was pretty skeptical of Heath Ledger being able to pull it off.  I was pretty damn wrong.  He looks to be owning the role.  I just hope they don't kill him off at the end of the movie.

Yeah.  Chris Nolan was very keen to do as much as he could in the camera but even so, they had 300+ SFX shots, mostly done by an outfit called Double Negative.  A lot of what they did was touch up live action shots or do digital matte stuff (sunsets, mountains and Gotham cityscape).  Their showreel for Batman Begins is here and a shot breakdown of some of the pieces is here.  They're working on Dark Knight too so I'm guessing it'll be similar stuff.  They also did the SFX for Hot Fuzz - if you have a look at what they did for that then that's probably similar to what they did for this stunt. 

If they did anything.

They might have just used Ironwood's cannon!

Hey, Maggie Gylenhall is in this.  With Heath Ledger.  It would be awesome if they could work a Brokeback reference in there somewhere.

You know, I love that Maggie is in this. She's a much better actress than Mrs Cruise and is about 10X hotter in my book.

Sherrygirl and Stranger than Fiction convinced me otherwise. Then again, everytime I look at Kate I see "Tom Cruise's cultist hostage" stamped on her forehead.

Edit: Changed a pronoun so people knew I wasn't referring to Maggie as Tom's Xenu hostage.

Maggie has that same "girl next door" hotness, minus the Xenu herpes.  There is no comparison.

Also, Secretary.   this guy looks legit

I've never seen Secretary but I've heard good things about it.

Someone beat me (heh, get it) to the Secretary reference as the definitive evidence of Maggie's far greater hotness.

Oh, and according to something I read over on imdb, there is no origin story for The Joker in the film which I think is actually a cool choice since a lot of such films get bogged down in that plot set-up.  Ledger also apparently went a little bonkers getting ready for this role as he holed himself up in a hotel room by himself for like a month. He says he tried to combine Sid Vicious with Alex de Large to create his performance. I am seriously getting geeked for this flick.

While the Joker's origin story is a good one, I'm fine with them eschewing the whole "must tell villain's origin" in this movie. After all, Hollywood can't resist connecting the villain's origin with the hero's, as if a villain needed that extra incentive to hate the hero. He's the Joker, he wants to kill everyone.

That's pretty much how Batman Begins ended too, isn't it? Can't be bothered to find quotes, but something about Gordon talking about an arms race with criminals... And the Joker being the answer to Batman.
