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.
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.
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:

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):
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 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:
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:
