I generally avoid any pre-movie hype (low expectations are the best thing to have going into a movie... and of course popcorn) but Caine's recent comments are pretty interesting:
“I tell you the big surprise in the new ‘Batman’ — Heath Ledger as the Joker,” Caine told reporters in New York Tuesday. “He’s fantastic. He’s gone in a different direction than Jack (Nicholson) … Jack was like a really scary old, nasty old uncle with a funny face. Heath is like the most murderous psychopath you’ve ever seen on the screen,” Caine said.
Jack Nicholson: like a scary old nasty uncle? Since when?
If the photo on the left is any idea what we're in for, then I'm a little anxious... and scared :(
