The Dark Knight
Though the teaser trailer for The
Dark Knight showed less footage than Lohan has class, the first
pre-trailer footage for the film showed more than a little something.
The Dark Knight Footage
Attendees at Wizard World Chicago had the opportunity
to watch the first real footage for The Dark Knight. Jealous?
Dry your eyes, as the good people at WizardUniverse
have posted the footage details.
The footage started with a silhouette of a dark figure in front of one
of Batman’s armored vehicles before quickly cutting to Bruce Wayne
and Alfred delivering the brief lines heard in the “Dark Knight”
“Some people just want to watch the world burn,” advises Alfred
before the camera jumps to Batman in action on the Batpod, the new iteration
of his motorcycle.
The action built up as the Joker was seen in full for the first time with
a mess of white face, smeared red lipstick and sweaty, straggly green hair.
Apparently, the clown prince of crime gets arrested at one point in the
film, as the montage presented Jim Gordon (complete in SWAT gear) at the
Joker’s booking, saying, "no prints, no ID, custom clothes, no
tags.” The clown smiles with what appears to be blood over his face
from the inside of an interrogation room.
Checking back in with Bruce Wayne, the billionaire
playboy has a brief scene with Eckhart’s Harvey Dent where he says
“Rachel’s told me everything about you.”
“I truly hope not,” responds Wayne.

The Dark Knight opens to theaters on July 18, 2008.
