Nothing all that stunning, but we do have some release date news for "The Dark Knight," which (of course) is the widely-anticipated follow-up to Christopher Nolan‘s "Batman Begins." (Go circle July 18th, 2008 on your calendar.)

The report from Movieweb.com: " Warner Bros. Pictures has set the release date for the The Dark Knight, the sequel to 2005’s Batman Begins for July 18, 2008. The film will star Christian Bale, Heath Ledger, Michael Caine and Gary Oldman.

In the film, Batman and Commissioner Gordon find alliance with a newly appointed DA Harvey Dent to stop a vicious killer with a warped sense of humor known only as The Joker, a threat to both the good, and the evil of Gotham City."
