Movie Goodness All Around

Batman: The Dark Knight is looking incredible and I cannot wait ’til “Summer 2008”:

I wasn’t so sure about Heath Ledger as The Joker — I’ve always loved Jack Nicholson’s portrayal in the first Burton Batman. However, the above trailer combined with this Shaky Cam footage of a 6 minute preview that’s running before the IMAX version of I Am Legend is making me think he’ll do just fine. In any event, the movie looks again to be taking its cues from the Frank Miller interpretation of Batman. To this, I have no objection.
And, in other news, they’re making a Hobbit movie. Yay! Peter Jackson and Weta Digital will be involved. Double yay! Jackson will not direct, but instead will executive produce. Boo!
