It's not often that the runup to a film seems to take over the national consciousness, but The Dark Knight is making a pretty good go of it - and with good reason.
This new clip (from the MTV movie blog, but apparently not viewable there outside the US) shows a heartless and efficiently evil Joker in an artic lorry giving a vanful of people what for with a succession of larger and larger weaponry.
He looks amazing. It looks amazing. The stunts sing with twisted metal and falling masonery. It looks real - the Joker himself looks completely realised in a way that somewhat obliterates the Willy Wonka stylings of previous efforts.
Whether it's Ledger's death or an efficient media machine that's pushing anticipation to all kinds of crazy levels, it at least looks like the product is worth the hype.
No fridges, no nukes. Let's hope.
