Joker without makeup

07.23.2008

Ever since seeing THE DARK KNIGHT, I've been slightly infatuated with Heath Ledger and his performance in the film. Today I caught myself on his IMDb page, staring at photos of him without makeup on, trying to imagine him as the terror I saw on screen. Couldn't really do it. Well the following helps a little, and I'm thinking it's real. I searched for clips as Ledger as the Joker on YouTube, and this is the first thing that popped up. It's a picture of him with his scars, but without the makeup. And you can almost, almost connect the two. So is this real or what?

Th dark knight will be a cult movie from now on, but i think it will be in the 300 million barrier; it's a blockbuster, but not "that" kind of blockbuster..It's in the right path anyway.

I would absolutely love for THE DARK KNIGHT to surpass TITANIC'S record. Do I think it's possible that will actually happen? Absolutely. It made $200 million in 5 days and it doesn't appear to be losing any steam. When I went to see it again this past Tuesday (third viewing, and certainly not the last) I figured there would be a usual weekday crowd and that is to say not many. I was pleasantly surprised, however, to find myself sitting in a crowded theater. It wasn't a sold out showing

When I went to see it again this past Tuesday (third viewing, and certainly not the last) I figured there would be a usual weekday crowd and that is to say not many. I was pleasantly surprised, however, to find myself sitting in a crowded theater. It wasn't a sold out showing but I'd say at least half of the seats were filled, if not more than (and it's a pretty big theater). Also, as I've seen some others remark, most of the people in my showing (and actually the previous two showings) were female. This one girl sitting behind me in the most recent screening kept saying: "He's so good" every time Heath Ledger appeared on screen. That made me smile.

In short, I absolutely believe THE DARK KNIGHT can beat TITANIC's record. I read an article in todays USA TODAY which said that online pre-ticket orders have stayed high and a survey at Fandango indicated that 64% of people planned on repeat viewings. Also, and this should come as no surprise, they're predicting it'll be the fastest to reach the $300 million mark. And hey, that's only halfway to the TITANIC record.

I think THE DARK KNIGHT will become the highest grossing movie of all time, but I'm not expecting it right away. And even if it doesn't, it doesn't matter how much money TITANIC made because everyone will know that THE DARK KNIGHT is a much better movie than TITANIC.

The problem with Titanic grossing as much as it did was because there was nothing in the two months following it's release to give it any sort of competition. Wasn't Man In The Iron Mask the first film to knock it out of the top spot? Like three months later? Regardless, with a new BIG movie coming out every week this week, Dark Knight couldn't pull it off as much as I would love to see it do. No film this summer has even been number one for two weeks, except Iron Man at the beginning? Now if

cool pic

that's awesome. You know, I highly doubt that The Dark Knight will pass Titanic, but it's becoming closer then I thought. It broke the record for midnight oepning, 3 day opening, biggest non holiday monday, and fastest to 200 million. In 5 days. That means that it has made 1/3 of it's gross to beat (600 mill) in only five days. Judging by the insane popularity of this movie, and the fact that WB will likely try to get as much money out of this as possible, and the lack of competition in

I see this staying in theaters til early september.

I also couldn't believe the amount of females in the audience I saw it with twice. Not to mention I was in best buy and these 2 girls were playing joker ringtones on their phones and smiling about it, talking to each other about how they're "obsessed" with the movie. These looked like girls who love zac effron or magical fairies, mind you.. so... who knows?

never!

No movie will veer brake titanics record. As much as I hate this movie and love Batman it will never happen. The female audience went to Titanic 3 to 4 times, now guys will do that for Batman but will women? I think once will be enough for most. Besides the way movies are setup now a days is to get as much money in the first few weeks then leave the theater and get to DVD as quick as possible. Titanic was in the theater for like months!

I would LOVE to see TDK beat Titanic. But does anyone actually think it's going to happen? That movie made $600 million domestically. The next closet movie made 140 million LESS.

I really don't see it having that kind of staying power. It would be nice, but it's not going to happen.

dark knight had a bigger effect on me emotionally as a female rather than titanic, and I'm pretty sure it made some males emotional as well. i will be making my boyfriend watch it over and over, and everyone else i make watch it.

so if it's up to me it will be bigger than titanic.

money making bets

1st in regards to a picture of him with no make-up, can't someone find a still from him dressed as the cop in the movie with no make up?

2nd - BEFORE he died I made 3 bets.

#1 - it would make the most money ever on its opening weekend - I won that bet!

#2 - it will make the most money for any comic book movie

#3 - it will beat the titanic, because of REPEAT viewers

I feel pretty confident about my bets. Grand total of winnings will only be $30, because they were $10 bets, but

Well, the Dark Knight grossed 200 million in 5 days . . .! That's unheard of, and I believe, a new record.

So time will only tell, in fact, this upcoming weekend will reveal how powerful of a money maker it is

Yes, it will

Lazarus_Abraham: See, if you're a male, you won't rewatch the movie. Because Leonardo DiCaprio's bad acting ruined it.

Dark Knight and Joe Public

This is kinda off topic but..there's an article that mentioned that the majority of the movie going public doesn't know that Dark Knight is a sequel to Batman Begins. Is that remotely true? I had..a feeling about that.

my brother and I talked about this also. we couldn't think of one scene where we were like, "Yup, that's Heath." Fantastic performance that gave me goosebumps.

It won't beat titanic

NOPE! Not because of the quality of the film, but rather, simply, because it won't destroy female emotions like Titanic did... I mean, how many males re-watched that movie 12 or 15 times like thier girlfriends did? If you did, you need to space from that lady just a little bit, she has you WAY too under her thumb.

Please. Titanic made $1.8 billion (with a B) worldwide. #2 on that list is Return of the King... which is SEVEN HUNDRED MILLION DOLLARS BEHIND. Dark Knight has a very very very very very very very very long way to go.

The only Batman movie to make more money overseas than in America was BATMAN AND ROBIN. And if you look at the top 20 grossing movies of all-time, 19 of them made more money overseas than domestically. You need to really score with international audiences to get into that elite

And if you look at the top 20 grossing movies of all-time, 19 of them made more money overseas than domestically. You need to really score with international audiences to get into that elite company and, traditionally, Batman has not done that (and even if Dark Knight does pull it off, it will really have to do retarded business for a long time to get close).

I know buzz is still high, right now, for Dark Knight, but let's check in on it after a month in theaters and it's made it to Europe and Asia.

(Speaking of TITANIC being overrated... umm, THE DARK KNIGHT is currently the #1 movie on IMDB -- that may be the epitome of "overrated".)

Extra tidbit

Theres no way it passes Titanic, even though I wish it did because that movie was so overrated IMO. It's just too much money and it had too much hype right away, hence the opening weekend. People are already tired of the hype, and the fact that it opened so big, I don't see it beating Titanic.

I'd love to see this movie outgross Titanic. Its at...what...182 million right now. It set a new record for highest gross in a three day weekend, and highest gross on a Monday ever, if anything has a chance to beat out Titanic this does. And the only other major release, X-Files 2, is being under-advertised by Fox so I doubt it will even make back its budget.

What Titanic had going for it though, that Dark Knight does not, is its release date. Dark Knight was released in the summer (a major tent pole for big budget studio films). Titanic was released in December (where there are typically only one or two major releases) and could ride out its success through January and February unabated.

Still, there have been far too many movies to come out since Titanic that deserve the highest grossing spot more than Titanic ever did. Dark Knight is definitely one of them.

I really do hope this passes titanic just cause i think that movie is a little overrated. I'm being biased since i love comics and i'd rather see a comic movie at the top, but i don't really care. Screw titanic and let's see TDK make some more history.

Won't pass Titanic due to how much money it made and how for long it did so. What? Double digits for months on end? That's a tough feat to accomplish. It could however get up there on the highest grossing list. And rightfully so.

That scene where he's dressed like a cop, you can tell that he put the skin tone makeup over the Joker's make up and it is just damn creepy. The way his eyeliner and mascara is makes him definitely look like someone from a Clockwork Orange.
