â€œWe thank the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for honoring Heathâ€™s performance in â€˜The Dark Knight,â€ said Ledgerâ€™s family in a statement. â€œThis nomination is deeply appreciated and is not lost on those of us who continue to love and miss him. We are so proud that our boyâ€™s work is being recognized in this way.â€ Well cool.Â Unfortunately, The Dark Knight was snubbed under the feature film categories. via Variety
I completely let this bit of news slip past me yesterday, but it is a big day for Warner Bros. as it got to thumb its nose at Sony as The Dark Knight passed the $400 million mark in just 18 days, and should have passed Spider-Man overnight. If the box office tickets continue to roll in, The Dark Knight could reach the $500 million making it the second highest grossing title of all time, just behind Titanic. via Variety
DC Direct has announced a new production run of the 1:6 scale deluxe Joker collector figure.Â The figure has been sold out for a while, and with the success of the Dark Knight movie, the company is trying to meet demand.

I think everyone saw this coming after the spectacular opening night the Dark Knight had in theaters.Â It’s official now, The Dark Knight has officially pwned Spider-Man in the box office, taking in an estimated $155.3 million over the weekend.Â Even at two hours and forty-one minutes, the Dark Knight was able to best the third installment of the wall crawler series by $4 million. “This is a career-capper for anybody who works on a film like this in our business,” Warners distribution president Dan Fellman said. “It’s a great ride, and it’s just beginning, Most of the big summer
Let’s see how long this video will stay up before Warner Bros. takes it down. If your name happens to be Russell, and/or you don’t want to see some spoilers, FOR JEEBUS SAKE, DON’T WATCH! [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GA7Von2jdQU[/youtube] Can not wait until movie day!
CNN is reporting Senator Patrick Leahy has landed a part in the upcoming Dark Knight movie. Leahy is apparently a big comic book enthusiast, and actually served as an extra in the 1997 Batman installment: Batman and Robin. The senator told the station he can’t reveal the exact details of his role in the upcoming movie, but he did say he has landed a scene with its two stars, Christian Bale and Heath Ledger. via CNN
Wizard Universe has the transcript of The Dark Knight Panel that featured Christian Bale, Gary Oldman, Aaron Eckhart, and director Christopher Nolan. This is a question for both Mr. Bale and the writers: Will you be playing up more of the “Dark Knight Detective”/criminologist angle of Batman this time? [Audience applauds] CHRISTOPHER NOLAN: The short answer is “Yes.” The long answer is that “Batman Begins” was an origin story and the important thing was to move the story forward. In this movie, the detective stuff will help move the story along. I can not wait for this movie to come
The Why So Serious website, the viral marketing site that had San Diego Comic-Con attendees running all over the Gas Lamp district following clues as part of The Dark Knight movie promotion, is now redirecting viewers to Rent-a-Clown.com. All of the participants pictures are there. Embedded in the HTML is the Joker’s trademark laugh. <!– HAHAHAHAHdAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHA –> I’ll leave it up to the Internet slueths to disect the pages to see if any other hidden messages pop up.
I’ve been following the Why So Serious Dark Knight viral website since finding it this morning. Apparently, it requires both an Internet access and someone on the ground at the San Diego Comic-Con. After some searching, the following image comes to light.
The folks over at Film Wad have some images of Heath Ledger decked out in full Joker gear filming a scene for the Dark Knight. Woot! Looking pretty scary. I’m getting more and more excited about this movie as it draws near. Word has it, we’ll see a trailer for the film ahead of the Simpson’s movie, which just so happens to be the same day as the WB panel at the SDCC. Take the jump for another image, then head over to Film Wad for some video.
USA Today has a short article about The Dark Knight saying four scenes will be shot in IMAX, including the introduction of the Joker. The director’s sequel to Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, will become the first feature film to be partly shot in the IMAX format, an expensive and cumbersome process that typically is the province of documentaries and short films. Nolan will shoot four action sequences — including the introduction of the Joker, played by Heath Ledger — on IMAX. There’s another photo of The Joker being shot with the IMAX camera, and sure enough the photo we
Apparently the discussion surrounding the hackability (for lack of a better word) of the Harvey Dent campaign website we posted earlier this week has been proven hackable and it looks like the Joker is behind it all. Take a peek at www.ibelieveinharveydenttoo.com/ and see what that clown prince of crime has done to the site. OR if you are daring enough, enter your email address and the code to have the image strip away pixel by pixel to reveal a shocking surprise.
