Iron Man and The Dark Knight Trailer

May 11 2008

I probably was one of the last people to see Iron Man. All of my travel kept me out of movie theaters last weekend, but I made sure I got to go this weekend. I went to a digital projection at the River East 21 AMC Theaters here in Chicago.

What can I say about Iron Man? Well first, Robert Downey, Jr. - welcome to the big time! He was a perfect Tony Stark. You believed he was a boozing, womanizer gazillionare. You believed he was mechanical. You believed he was Iron Man. As for the movie, I could nitpick a bit. Such as you knew Jeff Bridges was going to turn out bad, because you didn't meet the rest of the board. Loved the Nick Fury piece at the end of the credit though :-)

But the real surprise for me was The Dark Knight trailer attached to Iron Main. It is the third trailer .. and WOW! See to me, The Joker has never been portrayed properly on screen. Jack Nickelson took the TV show Joker and gave it a spin, but the Joker in The Dark Knight comic is my Joker. Blood Thirsty. Psycopath. Cold-blooded Murderer. And it seems that Heath Ledger has that edge to him. Aaron Eckhardt looks great as Harvey Dent ... and the leaked pictures of Two Face look devilish. I can not wait for this movie .... CAN NOT WAIT! At the end of the new trailer ... when the soundtrack crescendo's as "THE DARK KNIGHT" comes on screen .. gave me goose bumps. July 18th can not come soon enough.
