The Dark KnightIf you are dying to see I Am Legend when it comes out on December 14th, you might think about seeing it in an IMAX theatre.

Now I can’t remember the last time I saw a movie on an IMAX screen, but I think it was some kind of space exploration documentary about 20 bazillion years ago. I really have no clue what it’s like to watch a real feature film at the IMAX.

But I might just try to find out.

If you don’t know, The Dark Knight is the sequel to Batman Begins and is scheduled for a July 18th, 2008 release.  Christian Bale is back to fight The Joker, played by Heath Ledger. You can watch the teaser for the movie on Rotten Tomatoes.
Now I thought Batman Begins was one of the best superhero movies ever, and might have been better than even the original Batman with Michael Keaton.

So obviously I am highly anticipating the sequel. And now, we can get a look at it seven months before it comes out at your local cinema.

According to many websites, the first 6-7 minutes of The Dark Knight will be shown at the beginning of showings of I Am Legend only on IMAX screens.

That should make the I Am Legend viewing that much sweeter.

On a side note, here are some Dark Knight tidbits:

– Batman will go to Hongkong [sic] for some kind of “gangster hunting”, but the producer Chuck Roven won’t tell us why Batman travels to Hongkong.

– “The whole thing is not ‘Joker Begins’, because we did not tell how the Joker became what he is”, says director Christopher Nolan. “During these five minutes it is shown how the joker of the small crook becomes the most-dreaded gangster of the city – it is more of a “The Rise of the Joker”

– Batman’s new mask will have white lenses on the eyes when he turn on the Bat-sonar detection.

Sounds good to me…can’t wait!
