The "Dark Knight" returns

I knew the new movie of Batman would be releasing soon, but I didn't know its today. I am a frequent visitor of imdb and just a while ago, I discovered "The Dark Knight" has been released today (18 July). Well, that was not the point. I was stunned to see it in #4 in imdb's all time top 250 movie list! And the day of release has not yet passed!

It feels good. Christopher Nolan is one my most favorite directors/writers. He ought to be. Who else can deliver movies like "Memento", "Insomnia", "Batman Begins" and "The Prestige" in a row?! And now he returns with "The Dark Knight", maybe one of the most anticipated movies ever. If you don't understand what I'm saying, go see "Batman Begins", which is by far the best batman movie ever. (actually, I didn't like any of the others)

What about the cast? Christian Bale, as he was before, should be awesome as Batman. Michael Caine, Aaron Eckhart, Heath Ledger - they all are greats! (with movies like "Flawless", "Bill" and "10 things I hate about you"). I am not saying great casting always brings great results. I just have faith in all of them.

Though many of us will miss Ms. Katie Holmes as Rachel (Bruce Wayne's down-to-earth girlfriend), I guess Maggie Gyllenhaal has done equally well, if not better. I liked her in "Stranger than Fiction".

Heath Ledger has been my favorite since "10 Things I Hate About You". People are saying that he delivers a memorable performance as Joker in this movie and may get an oscar. I don't know if anyone has ever got a posthumous oscar award or nomination. Lets keep our fingers crossed.

But the question is, how long do I have to wait to watch the movie?
Not much, I hope.

Looks like "The Dark Knight" is breaking up all box office records, and #1 in imdb top movie list, with a stellar rating of 9.5!
