probably, But I think the movie would have been huge anyway, maybe not billion dollar huge, but huge.

Not really, no. I loved the film, thought it was great. After I watched it I checked and found out that the guy who played Joker died.

No, Nobody I knew wanted to go see the movie just because he died. His acting was one of the reason for the movies success. I'd love to think of what else he could have done after the Dark Knight.

It may have contributed but maybe only 1%. It's a great movie and would have succeeded anyways.

To be honest before I saw it I thought the majority of the love it was getting and especially the love Ledger was getting was as a result of him dying. After seeing it though I totally changed my mind, a perfect film and an outstanding performance from Ledger.

It was such a success because of how good it was, it had very little if anything to do with Ledgers death

It depends. Do you mean money wise or just purely based on the movie?

Its successful because of how amazing Heath is in it.

IMHO

Re: Is Heath Ledger's death one of the reasons for success of Dark Knight?

Its a hard question to answer, really hard question. You can ge two answers:

1) Yes, Heath Ledger death is one of the main reason for the TDK success.
2) No, TDK would of been succesful regardless of the death of Heath Ledger or not.

Honestly? I believe Heath Ledger definetly did gain global exposure, that everyon knew how huge this role was - and obviously for a huge blockbuster film like The Dark Knight, to have one of the worlds top A-listers tragically die then I am sure his death definetly gained that global exposure where everyone was interested in seeing how the film would be.

Once it came out though, regardless of his death - it would of still been a hit. The way he played The Joker was tremendous, almost unimaginable how Heath Ledger transformed this character from the days of Jack Nicholson into this dark twisted take. Very very good.

It was a great performance, but I wouldn't say the death had little to no impact. His death before the release added some BIG TIME hype.

Now, go ahead. Tell me she died of cancer. Tell me she was in a car crash. Tell me she can only move her fucking eyelids. Yeah, why don't you tell me some sentimental bullshit that will make me 'ashamed' of what I just said.

You pricks are all the same, and if we met in real life I'd bury my boot up your ass. I get more sex than you, little man. So pogo on that you stupid cunt.
