What are some mind-blowing facts about The Dark Knight (2008)? by Varun Narecode Radhakrishnan
Answer by Varun Narecode Radhakrishnan:
Being a comic nerd and a follower of batman, i have found these :
- When Micheal Caine became speechless
In the scene when The Joker gatecrashes Bruce's party, Michael Caine was originally supposed to have a line when the elevator arrives but he was so spooked by Heath Ledger's appearance that he didn't speak. Caine referred to him as "terrifying".
2. That tongue stick out
One of The Joker's creepiest tics in the film was his frequent lip-licking and cheek sucking. This wasn't intentional but rather Heath Ledger's genuine reaction to the uncomfortable prosthetics. But he was told to keep it for the character.
3. Imax Camera gets destroyed
During the ambitious Joker/SWAT chase scene, an IMAX camera was destroyed. No biggie, you might think. Except that it was one of only four IMAX cameras in the world at that time. Oh, and each one costs $250k.
4. The greatest film of all time by users on IMDb
Within two days of release, it was already ranked as the greatest film of all time by users on IMDb.
The hospital blown up by Joker in the dark knight was an abandoned Brach’s candy factory in chicago. The explosion triggered panicked calls to police from residents who feared a terrorist attack.
Happy reading folks 🙂 .
