Watch ‘The Dark Knight’ Trailer Now!!!

A twelve city search ends in new ‘Batman’ footage.

After a grueling twelve city scavenger hunt set up by The Joker himself, the brand new The Dark Knight trailer has made its debut on YouTube. We have all the excitement for you right here. Just click on the video below:

I have just gotten back from the Hollywood and Highland Center where the latest phase of The Dark Knight marketing madness happened earlier today. After a wild goose chase with a few hundred Joker fanatics, we all ended up at the Mann's Chinese 6 theater to see the highly anticipated new trailer for The Dark Knight. Was it worth about an hour and a half scavenger hunt and long wait? You're DAMN right it was. Below is my description of the brand spanking new trailer for the latest Batman installment.

We open on The Dark Knight himself standing atop one of Gotham's skyscrapers. After some quick cuts to Batman in that souped-up motorcycle and Christian Bale in normal Bruce Wayne regalia, and Aaron Eckhart's Harvey Dent on the campaign trail, we hear Heath Ledger's voice of The Joker talking to his various minions and when one of them suggests what they do, Joker ominously says they should "kill the Batman." Typed words alone cannot bring justice to how Ledger SAYS those words.

Anyway, we then see some more shots of Dent dining with Maggie Gylenhaal's Rachel, where he first meets Bale for the first time ("Rachel has told me everything about you." "Well, hopefully not everything.") and we see more random footage of Bale, Ledger, Gylenhaal and Eckhart before seeing The Joker break up a fancy party and try to woo/scare Gylenhaal. We've seen some of that part before, but what we didn't see is all the OTHER Joker's running into the place and causing havoc and such. We also hear Bale describing how he must go into a darker place inside himself if he is to catch a man like The Joker.

It caps off with one of those big rapid-fire editing deals and the title card, which brought about thundering applause, almost too much as we almost missed the quick bit after the title card with Michael Caine's Alfred talking to Bale's Wayne, asking if he'll be taking the Batmobile out, in broad daylight, to which Bale opts for the more "subtle" Lamborghini.

This trailer seriously rocks... HARD! The whole place was absolutely packed and they almost immediately started chanting for them to play it "ONE MORE TIME." Alas, one viewing is all we got as another horde of masses were still waiting outside to see it. I would easily waste another hour and a half wandering around Hollywood just to see a 2 and a half minute trailer as good as that one again. I can't wait for you guys to see it for yourself, because I'm sure you'll be just as blown away as I was.

That's all I've got folks, and I'm eagerly awaiting July 18, when The Dark Knight hits the theaters, even more than I already was. Bring on The Dark Knight!!! Peace in. Gallagher out!

The Dark Knight was released July 18th, 2008 and stars Christian Bale, Heath Ledger, Aaron Eckhart, Michael Caine, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman, Monique Gabriela Curnen. The film is directed by Christopher Nolan.

    jack was okay in batman, i mean he did act good, but heath will bring the character back to life.
    either way batman was good and i hope the dark knight is also good, even though i dont doubt it.

    My opinion is that it's okay to fight about it lol

    I still don't think I'm gonna like Heath's Joker as much as I liked Jack's, and what's wrong with the constant smile? Don't get me wrong, though I have no doubt that I will love this movie, and that I will love Heath's Joker, just not as much as I liked Jack's. However, there is no need to fight about since these are OUR OPINIONS right.

    That WOULD piss me off marc!! lol I still think jack's a jackass who looks like a turtle without a shell, but whatever...
    The reason i say that is because he was actually upset that they didn't ask him to come back to play the joker. UR A HUNDRED YEARS OLD JACK!!!!

    they need to go ahead and release the trailer in HD. I mean, everybody has seen it, so...... I like the looks of when it showed harvey being transformed into two-face. Looked like he was being held down whil the acid leaked across the floor to his face.

    i would laugh if they pushed it back several months like 3 weeks before its actual release date. wouldnt that just piss you guys off lol

    all in due time indy.. patience

  21. IndyJones

    true dat! building on what i said before. I like the fact that he doesnt have a constant smile like Jacks. I think the scars a little more creepy. Release the movie already!

    7 years agoby @indyjonesFlag

  22. Marcusx

    thats true. i like jack, and it is perhaps the directors fault he wasnt true to the comics. jack is a phenomenal actor. heath will do it justice

    7 years agoby @marcusxFlag

  23. Phatlightning

    i agree with indy, it was the directors portrayal of batman.. I do believe that Heaths Joker will more closely resemble the Joker intended in the comics, but that doesnt go without saying Jack COULDNT have done the same dark Joker that heath has portrayed for us..

  24. -comrade-

    bollocks. they should release this trailer publicly.

  25. IndyJones

    I think you "in a way" cant really compare the two Jokers becuase it is two different interpitations of Batman. But going against what i just said i do think this joker is better! ha

    7 years agoby @indyjonesFlag

  26. Flrep07

    i agree with marcusx. heath looked like he did a way better job than jack did. jack was not scary or psychotic, just a bored, old man who was horny. he tried stealing Batman's girl! from the trailer that the joker "edited" it looks like the joker is both serious AND fun in a sick, cool kind of way.

    7 years agoby @flrep07Flag

  27. Vamp

    marcusx, yes but the Joker is also FUN with it, Heath's is TOO serious, I read the comics.

    i love the new trailer it shows how great heath,s joker realy is

    7 years agoby @thejokerrulesFlag

  29. T.Clark

    Bob Cane made the joker in batman #1(correct me if i'm wrong) lol Jack was a good joker, no doubt, but heath is gonna blow him away. Jack was handed a script and told to act like he always does only in white make-up. Heath actually put effort into it
