Did Heath Ledger not speak to anyone with a camera on set?

I'm a sucker for 'limited' stuff as well, but if I could do it over I would get a Joker mask. The Batpod case does look very cool though...but I was just disappointed in how thin and unsecure the case feels.
thanks for the reply. i think i'll take another look at how the mask editions look before i make my final decision.

Is anyone having trouble with audio dropouts during the movie? The audio drops out during the bank heist scene, the scene where Joker detonates his jail bomb and also the hospital bomb scene. It's pretty annoying. For the record I'm using a 60gb PS3 and a Harmon/Kardon receiver.

Thank you, Mr. Nolan, for making a damn fine movie.

Fuck you, Mr. Nolan, for not including deleted scenes of a movie whose main villain died.

A pile of cinematic history left to rot be because of your own ego.

I downloaded on iTunes and it has the shifting aspect ratio. I assume the digital download does as well since it just downloads from iTunes?

I was about to comment on this. Yes, the digital download disc does have the shifting aspect ratio. I just put it on my iPod. Cool I guess. Sad I go from watching this on a 6 story screen to a 1 1/2" one. But hey, it's all about content.....right? Sigh.....

Watched it on BD last night on a 50" plasma, and I just don't get the issues some people are having with the transfer. Looked gorgeous to these eyes...

And the shifting aspect ratios - which sounds problematic - was barely noticeable, and that was probably because I consciously looking for it.

What are you talking about? He has, on several occasions, stated that there really is no extra material, there are no deleted scenes. Nolan is known for tight direction, there was no fat on this filet.

600k is an awesome first day number.

Kind of a disappointing economy to go along with it. With the way things are going right now I think that 600,000 was a good number for an infant format on day one. I know that people need to spend money for the economy to improve but many are scared to do it.

Am I the only one that got screwed and didn't get an e-mail from Warners? I've been signed up on the BD Live site since the weekend, but no e-mail last night/this morning.

I just registered for BD-Live. I hope I'm not too late to get an RSVP. Christopher Nolan has been one of my favorite film-makers for a long time.

I need to watch it on a smaller screen, but the aspect change was very noticeable on my 96" screen. I don't think the transfer is terrible, I just wanted the whole movie to look as good as the IMAX stuff.

I got the e-mail this morning and signed up, that should be pretty cool. I can't figure out exactly how it will look, because didn't the Hellboy screening just have you type in questions on the player and not online?

There is clearly going to be another release down the road, and surely more and more content will be added.

Relax.

I didn't get an email either. (Signed up yesterday- that certainly could be too late.)

Exactly. They are not going to put all their eggs in one basket. They have to hold something back for the eventual double dip.

Fortunately, I got the provided link from a person I work with and was able to sign up...the same link works with any account.

Was there a specific sign-up for the event or was it just the first XX people to sign up for a WB BD-Live account?

Also of note is that after you submit questions there's a screen saying there will be similar events for Body of Lies, Four Christmases, Watchmen and Gran Torino (thinking ahead I suppose).
