Alright fanboys, prepare to wet yourselves. The first full trailer for The Dark Knight has gone online via one of the many viral marketing sites related to the movie, and it includes your very first look at Heath Ledger moving and talking as The Joker. This is not the first six minutes of the movie that is running prior to I Am Legend in theatres right now (you can currently peep a shaky cam version of that on YouTube), this is a shorter, high-quality theatrical trailer.
I have to admit, I had my doubts about Heath Ledger but he seems to be bringing a pretty interesting performance to The Joker. As for Christian Bale, well his gruff Batman voice still seems a little forced, but whatever. The only other thing that stood out to me is that there are a lot of guns and explosions in this trailer. It seems like they’re amping up the action, I just hope they don’t lose the mysterious side of Batman as well. Check out the trailer below. The Dark Knight hits theatres on July 18th… but you already knew that, right?» Related Link: The Dark Knight trailer
