Check This Out: EW's Exclusive Dark Knight Cover
by Alex Billington
July 4, 2008
Nearly everyone is getting more and more hyped for The Dark Knight, which is why we'll keep sharing articles that get you in the mood for the movie, but won't spoil any of it. The cover story on the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly is on The Dark Knight - "Tragedy and Triumph". Not only is the full article already online, but the new cover is pretty frickin' sweet. There is already so much great imagery for The Dark Knight that it's hard to imagine anything new that could stand up to what we've already seen - but this can. If I was still as big of a fanboy as I was when Star Wars: Episode I came out, this would definitely being going into my "collection." But for those who don't care about that, it's worth checking out anyway.
The cover is on the upcoming July 15th issue, so look for it on newsstands soon. If you need something to get you interested in reading the actual cover story, check out this bit about Heath Ledger. "Director Christopher Nolan calls Ledger's acting in the film 'fearless.' Christian Bale, the Caped Crusader himself, says it's 'intense — a superb performance.' And Morgan Freeman, who plays inventor Lucius Fox (his job in today's scene is to chat with Wayne after the Bat nap), chimes in with a simple 'extraordinary.'" Now I know you want to read it - so head over to EW.com to check it out. Otherwise, enjoy the cover below!
The Dark Knight is directed by phenomenal filmmaker 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). Batman is part of the DC Comics universe of legendary characters. The Dark Knight will hit theaters worldwide on July 18th this summer. You can always watch the latest trailer one more time!

I think it looks like it has potential, hopefully it won't be the crapfest that batman begins was.

This cover only proves that Bruce Wayne puts on eye mascara before putting on the mask. I can't imagine Bruce Wayne putting on that black make up in front of the mirror..holyblack eye Batman!

They shouldve put eye visors on that mask. Moe Larry and Curly can easily trick bruce!

I'm curious what Ledger's odds are for an Oscar nod. Heard a few rumors about it lately.
