Two Dark Knight updates for you guys!  The first is that there was a screening of the opening six minutes of TDK, and supposedly has a transcript posted online.  Only problem is that none of the links to it work, and I can’t find any trace of it on their website.

There’s a SPOILER filled description of some of it after the jump!

Also, NBC’s Today show got a behind the scenes look at TDK, and Al Roker got to interview Christian Bale, Aaron Eckhart, and Christopher Nolan.  Click HERE to view it in our video section!

TDK opens with a bank robbery orchestrated by the Joker and his goons.  The bank manager mutters a comment like, "There’s no honor in Gotham’s underworld anymore," to which the Joker shoves a grenade in his mouth and says, "Whatever doesn’t kill us makes us stranger." 

The grenade has a string tied to its pin, which Joker trails out the door and into a school bus.  As it drives away the pin is pulled, but instead of an explosion a cloud of pink gas is released.  Joker’s patented smilex gas?  Definite possibility.

If we get more details, we’ll let you know!
