    Not sure if anyone's been paying attention to this, but the website whysoserious.com has had something interesting going on lately:

    http://www.whysoserious.com


    This site is another in the viral marketing campaign for the Batman Begins Sequel "The Dark Knight". When the very long halloweenesque pumpkin started, it had a full candle, and has been burning down day by day ever since. Apparently, something from the film is going to be coming our way on Halloween. Any thoughts? Rumours? Theories?

    Teaser trailer maybe? Personally, I can't wait to see this movie when it comes out. Batman was always my favorite super heroe growing up :D .

    Perhaps something in the movie itself has illusions to long Halloween. As far as I know we have yet to see a real plot line for the movie except for what dialoge was in the teaser. But I agree to it being another trailer, that's most likely to happen so early on.

    Joker looks sweet in the new picture that was released today. Can't wait to see what will be the new treat after enough people participate with the request from www.rorysdeathkiss.com. Maybe the teaser poster or maybe a teaser trailer

    Leads to another challenge, plus a horrifying voice clip of The Joker saying "Tonight, you'll break your one rule".

    This is one of the best marketing campaigns in film history.

    Similar only in reference to heavy use of the Internet.

    Huh, pretty cool.

    So, anyone planning on dressing up as the Joker tomorrow and sending in photos?

    For 1999, yeah, pretty cool. :p 

    I'm tempted to dress up. Wonder if I can get my son to do it as well?

    The only friends of mine who would be into this are all away for a weekend cottage trip I had to miss out on. No one else i hang about with would have any interest. Pity, I've been the Joker for halloween before... maybe I should just send in some old photos.

    Wowsers, really looking forward to The Dark Night! Batman rocks the fo-shizzle. I still have a soft spot in my heart for Mask of the Phantasm.
