More Exclusive Comcast Videos July 18th, 2008

Com­cast have posted some more exclu­sive videos — this time inter­views with Gary Old­man, Mag­gie Gyl­len­haal, Christo­pher Nolan, Chris­t­ian Bale and Aaron Eck­hart. On top of this there is a behind the scenes look at Gotham Knight.

I also for­got to men­tion some of their other exclu­sive fea­turettes which are avail­able in stan­dard and high def­i­n­i­tion. I’ve included links to the high def­i­n­i­tion ver­sions for ease, stream­ing was being a bit slow for me earlier.

Batman Unmasked — The Psychology of The Dark Knight July 17th, 2008

A short while back we men­tioned that the His­tory Chan­nel would be air­ing an hour long fea­ture on the his­tory of Bat­man, come July 16th. This doc­u­men­tary, enti­tled “Bat­man Unmasked — The Psy­chol­ogy of The Dark Knight”, aired last night and has promptly been uploaded to YouTube in five parts, strung together in the playlist below — catch it while you can:

Chicago’s Dark Knight Gala July 17th, 2008

YouTube user Direc­to­rian has posted a video of The Dark Knight gala which took place in Chicago. Whilst the gala fea­tured a screen­ing of the movie, this video only shows us the intro­duc­tion with the stars along with the Vision­ary Award 2008 — which went to Christo­pher Nolan.

In his accep­tance speech Nolan explains why he chose to shoot in Chicago and a lit­tle bit about his expe­ri­ences with shoot­ing in the IMAX for­mat, before thank­ing the WB and of course his mom.

The Dark Knight Premier — Video Highlights July 15th, 2008

Wow, I just can’t stop post­ing videos today. I’ve already pro­vided some video high­lights of Chris­t­ian Bale on the “Black car­pet” at the pre­mier, how­ever enough videos have popped up for me to make a ded­i­cated post — please find below an 18 video playlist of Dark Knight pre­mier videos!

The videos fea­ture Aaron Eck­hart, Chris­t­ian Bale, Mag­gie Gyl­len­haal inter­views amongst oth­ers, as well as tele­vi­sion stu­dio fea­tures from Fox, the BBC and Asso­ci­ated Press:

Heath Ledger tipped for Posthumous Oscar July 15th, 2008

It seems like this is the story many tele­vi­sion sta­tions are pick­ing up and run­ning with, it’s a lit­tle bit early for us fans to deter­mine whether Heath should be con­sid­ered for an Oscar or not (with the excep­tion of those already lucky enough to have seen the movie), but the signs are cer­tainly encour­ag­ing — from what we have seen and heard and from what the crit­ics tell us. Below are a selec­tion of videos echo­ing the dis­tinct pos­si­bil­ity of a posthu­mous Oscar nom­i­na­tion — it would be the first win in thirty years (EDIT: Cor­rect­ing 30 years fact, thanks Nick):
