The Joker Inspires Hollywood Halloween Gear

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The Dark Knight isn’t just a box office phenomenon, it’s a Halloween (Oct. 31) phenomenon too.

According to a survey from Fandango.com – the nation’s leading movie-ticketing destination – The Joker, as immortalized by Heath Ledger in The Dark Knight, is the most popular male 2008 movie-related Halloween costume.

Other movie-inspired costumes for guys include Christian Bale’s Batman from The Dark Knight, Robert Downey Jr.’s Ironman, Downey’s blackface character from Tropic Thunder, and Harrison Ford’s brave Indiana Jones.

The ladies prefer to play Halloween dress-up in Anna Faris’ costume from The House Bunny, followed by Angelina Jolie’s character from Wanted, Miley Cyrus from Hannah Montana 3D, Vanessa Hudgens’ sweet student from High School Musical: Senior Year, and Kristen Stewart’s character from Twilight.

For group Halloween costumes, the fabulous ladies from Sex And The City take the top spot, followed by – who else? – The Joker and Batman from The Dark Knight.
