"The Dark Knight": July 18, 2008

So Warner Bros. has set a date for Chris Nolan's "Batman" sequel. July 18, 2008.

I'm kind of bummed the flick won't stay in the June slot like all the past "Batman" efforts. I always consider June peak summer movie season, and July seems to bring up the end of the pack. Especially after July 4.

I haven't given a hard look at what's opening that summer, but I hope this gets pushed forward three weeks.
