Hey everyone, my name's Matt and I'm a new writer here at Film Junk. This is a new column that I'm going to be starting where every once in a while I'll give you a couple film facts that you probably never knew. Hopefully you'll find them interesting and it will spark discussion. This edition of Did You Know will feature the movie The Dark Knight. Fact #1: Remember in the movie those videos that the Joker sends to the Gcn? The first one was about the fake Batman and the second one was where Mike Engel reads the Joker's statement. Those were both directed by Heath Ledger. The first one Nolan supervised but for the second he gave Heath complete freedom. Discussion: Who knew Heath could direct? It's a shame he passed away so unexpectedly, perhaps in the future he could have tried his hand at directing a full feature length movie. »
