Here’s Looking at Film, Kid

We’ve been waiting months. Hell, I’ve been waiting over a year now — ever since Heath Ledger was announced as Christopher Nolan’s pick for Batman’s arch-nemesis, the Joker, in the summer of 2006. But now we’ve finally got it … a glimpse at Ledger’s darker, creepier Prince of Clowns. And it’s not an audio sample or a leaked promo shot. This is it. The real deal.

The first official trailer for The Dark Knight.

I’ve been watching it almost constantly since its debut late Sunday evening. If I had any qualms about Ledger’s Joker, they’re all but dashed now. He’s just fantastic in the role — creepy, commanding and sinister. This trailer just reeks of awesome, and it’s been a long while since I’ve been this pumped about a flick so far in advance. July 2008 had better get here soon. I’m not sure how much longer this film fan can wait.
