A quick note about Dark Knight trailers and prologue

Exciting times are here, Batman fans!

If you go see Will Smith’s I Am Legend at a regular theater this weekend, you’ll get to see the first trailer for the July 18 Batman Begins sequel, The Dark Knight.

This one will have footage; the previous teaser trailer was only logos and dialogue.

If you go see I Am Legend on IMAX, you won’t get the trailer but you will get to see the first few minutes of The Dark Knight in glorious IMAX. It’s a prologue of sorts, featuring a bank robbery executed by The Joker (Heath Ledger) and his goons.

And though the IMAX Joker prologue won’t arrive online, it looks like the trailer will be popping up here on Sunday:

A Taste for the Theatrical

It’s another of The Joker’s viral websites, named after Lt. Gordon’s line to Batman at the end of Begins. “Take this guy. Armed Robbery, double homicide. Got a taste for the theatrical, like you. Leaves a calling card.”

Keep your eyes on it!

And if you see either the trailer or the prologue this weekend at a theater near you, feel free to stop by and leave a review.

I’m going to see the IMAX prologue tomorrow, so stay tuned.
