Batman Begins Trailer

This post is more than 2 years old.

Today is "off topic" day I think. Oh well. The trailer for Batman Begins is online now and all I can say .... wow. Christian Bale is the new Batman, and I think he will do a great job. He was pretty good in Equilibrium, even though it was a standard 1984 ripoff. Although to be fair, ever movie/book featuring an oppresive regime seems to be compared to 1984, so we shouldn't be too critical. Also, the movie had a very interesting fighting style that wasn't a blatant Matrix ripoff.

Definitely the old dark knight batman, Christian Bale, bringing out the dark psycho feeling....

I still remember him from Lord of the Rings, but anyways. I still loved Batman Forever the best, but ce sera...

I agree -- first and second Batman were the best. The rest were too "Disney". The dark and mysterious works better.

Gunkata! Equilibrium was cheesy, but it was a very good kinda cheesy. Bale will be an excellent Batman, I agree. He's a good actor. If you haven't checked out American Psycho, I'd highly recommend it. It's a bit gruesome, but he's very funny (in a dark way, of course).
