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 Video Interview Collection July 15th, 2008

Amongst the Dark Knight pre­mier videos, a slew of video inter­views with the cast and crew have popped up, much to our delight. This embed­ded 20 video playlist also fea­tures Gary Old­man on the Conan O’Brien show and The View.

Many thanks to the YouTube user fal­co­nun­der­ground that has been stay­ing on top of these as best possible.

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):

“Meet the Cast” Feature July 15th, 2008

Main­stream television/video fea­tures cov­er­ing The Dark Knight/Batman/Heath Ledger are pop­ping up all over the place as we approach the much antic­i­pated released of the movie. Here’s a new fea­ture to quickly get your teeth into, by ReelzChannel:

Christian Bale on the Today Show July 15th, 2008

Chris­t­ian Bale has also been talk­ing with the folks at The Today Show — delv­ing into a lit­tle bit of the Bat­man psy­che in this 7 minute feature:

There are also some can­did shots of his Today Show appear­ance, stand­ing next to the Bat pod and some extra snip­pets of Bale being inter­viewed at the pre­mier. The 3 videos are embed­ded in a playlist below:

Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine interviews July 15th, 2008

The pre­sent­ing in this first video, The Today show, is hilar­i­ously bad, do peo­ple actu­ally watch this rub­bish? (I’m British and don’t have to con­tend with such things)… Mr Mor­gan Freed­man… . That aside — we get to hear Mor­gan Free­man and Michael Caine’s views of Heath Ledger’s per­for­mance in a noisy and poorly sounded interview:

Thanks Rockers94 (video mir­ror)

For a much bet­ter and more inter­est­ing inter­view, I advise you watch these next clips from “The View” with Whoopi Goldberg:

More ter­ri­ble tele­vi­sion clips after the break… this time fea­tur­ing Keith Ledger!
