Why is this a first look? Well besides a few quick flashes of Rachel Dawes in the original trailer, Maggie Gyllenhaal hasn't had much real screen time as of yet. As you all hopefully know, Gyllenhaal took over Katie Holmes's job in The Dark Knight. It's a change that I'm not entirely sure I'm comfortable with yet (especially since I just watched Batman Begins last night), however I'm sure I'll get used to it about 15 minutes into the movie. A new video has been discovered as part of The Dark Knight's viral marketing and it features Gyllenhaal as Assistant District Attorney Rachel Dawes speaking at a press conference in support of Harvey Dent. This is, essentially, our first real glimpse of the new Dawes.
This came from a complicated combination of links and numbers. If you're interested in finding out exactly how it was discovered, head over to the SuperHeroHype forums. As always, stay tuned right here at FS.net for the latest from The Dark Knight's viral marketing campaign.
The Dark Knight is again directed by Christopher Nolan (Memento, Batman Begins, The Prestige) and co-written by Nolan, his brother Jonathan Nolan (The Prestige), and David S. Goyer (Blade, Batman Begins). The movie will hit theaters worldwide on July 18th.
