HBO ‘Dark Knight’ promos featuring the Pixies

Posted by · 6:42 pm · June 8th, 2009

Last year’s box office hog (and Best Picture no-show) “The Dark Knight” premieres on HBO this Friday, June 13.  There is nothing particularly creative about using the Pixies’ “Where is my Mind?” on these promo commercials of course, but I love the juxtaposition anyway.

    I got a message on my Comcast cable box telling me about the free HBO and Cinemax weekend this Friday through Monday.

    I set it to record The Dark Knight in HD. It’ll be interesting to see if the HBO HD version replicates the Blu-Ray version in terms of replicating the IMAX experience.

    What. A. Movie.

    After not seeing a movie for almost 2 and a half months,this was the first film I popped into the blu-ray after studying abroad for a quarter (well, I saw Duplicity with subtitles…I guess Gilroy had to get it out of his system), and damn…everything in it just grows on me. Eckhart’s performance, the third act, Bale’s growl (I can’t tell it’s Bruce Wayne), and the action sequences. It’s also very clear and vitally important that Nolan continues the “chest-match” between the Joker and Batman. It must be done.

    I like this promo.

    Are you kidding, of course I’ve seen it. I just wasn’t expecting the song to work so well with the movie. The promos were good, and I wanted to the watch the movie again.
