Though Batman's fans have gotten their first share of seeing Harvey "Two Face" Dent through the new trailer of the forthcoming "The Dark Knight", they haven't really been able to see the bad side of this particular Batman's arch nemesis. To fill in the gap and also answer the curiosity on the character, its depicter Aaron Eckhart sat down with LA Times to give out hints on the iconic "Two Face".

Noting that his character has been put tightly under wraps, Eckhart excitedly exposed bits of what to expect from Batman's closest ally-turned-foe. "That's right, people don't really know yet," said the 40-year-old actor. "I can tell you that, basically, when you look at Two-Face, you should get sick to your stomach. Being the guy under all that, well, that was a lot of fun for me. It's like you would feel if you met someone whose face had pretty much been ripped off or burned off with acid. I can't talk about it beyond that because I don't want to give away too much of the plans by Chris (Nolan)."

'What Happens in Vegas' Under Box Office Watch

May 05, 2008 06:24:44 GMT


Coming into theaters a week after the blockbuster film made its smashing debut, "What Happens in Vegas..." will be faced with a great challenge to win moviegoers' hearts, especially since it will be released into the theaters on the exact same date as the forthcoming family movie "Speed Racer" on May 9. Still, some movie critics believe that the 20th Century Fox's romantic comedy offers more than what meets the eye and will appeal to young people.

Pairing up two comedic and lovable theps, Ashton Kutcher and Cameron Diaz, "What Happens" perhaps gives out a predictable and no-brainer story as what is claimed by Louise Keller via UrbanCineFile, but it still offers a comedy movie that "never pretends to be anything other than what it is". Supporting Keller's comment, Andrew L. Urban of UrbanCineFile added that the movie is more likely to be "a good date movie" as it delivers what it has promised. Joe Leydon of Variety moreover emphasized that the Tom Vaughan-directed film won't be like other comedy movies as it maintains its indulges from the beginning until the end.
