Letterman’s top 3 reasons to see ‘The Dark Knight’

Posted by Kristopher Tapley · 6:05 am · June 26th, 2008

1) Everyone dies in the end.
2) The motorcycle.
3) Heath Ledger.

Yes, it seems late night king of comedy David Letterman got an early look at “The Dark Knight,” and while he pokes fun at the anticipation and, of course, the “keep it under wraps” mentality of the studio, there seems to be some genuine adoration for the effort in there.

Money quote for Ledger:

Heath Ledger…oh my God is he great in this one…I’m telling you, this is a tremendous performance.  That’s the reason people ought to go see this film.

    Superhero cinema. Nice.

    By the way, anyone in Los Angeles hoping to make the midnight IMAX showings at either The Bridge or Universal CityWalk…forget about it. Both — I’m sad to have just discovered — are sold out.

    Plenty seats left for the 3:15 a.m. show though, so who’s with me?!

    I was seriously pondering the late show! I just can’t get enough of the news coming in about the film, with the new tv spot narration, I just can’t wait, keep it coming!
