Hey Behind the Scenes Pic of the Day, why so serious?

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes pic! There’s a few BTS pics from The Dark Knight that have made their way to me over the last week or so, and apparently one of them was photoshopped. I have no eye for that kind of thing, which is pretty bad for someone in this field, I know, but luckily I have a few TDK images. Here's one of the Joker hanging around!

If you have a pic you think should be included email me. I’m looking for the iconic, the rare, the just plain cool behind the scenes shots to feature here. You can never have enough clowns, so I got another one for ya’ tomorrow! See ya’ then! -Quint Follow Me On Twitter

    are we sure that isn't 'shopped?

    It looks like the moment when Joker was kicking a downed Batman, but someone Photoshopped a skateboard into the picture.

    by brattyben

    I just don't see how you could ollie that close to a top actor and not worry about coming down on his leg. Seems criminally negligent to me.

  • July 13, 2010, 1 p.m. CST

    This isnt behind the scenes


    Its actually from a deleted/alternative scene, where the Joker defeats Batman by kick flipping, 360 pop shuving it, and hardflipping. Batman tries to do a bar hop on the Batpod but flips out.

    Yesterday I heard a rumor that Ledger desperately...

    by RedEgiraahgnal

    ...wanted to go out of the movie and therefore hammed his performance up as much as he could in hopes of getting fired. Even I would find it sad if this would be true. (Not because I'm a fan of Ledger or his Joker, if you know me you know that I think that Ladger was a bland actor and his Joker was unbearable, but because of the bitter, bitter irony.)

    joker jail scene question

    by Cole_El

    If you were arrested with make up on your face, wouldn't the police wipe the make up off to try to find out who you are? Anyone out there ever been arrested while wearing make up?

  • July 13, 2010, 1:46 p.m. CST

    reading is useful

    by Bouncy X

    i was confused going through the comments with all this talk about a skateboard and photoshop. then i got to the point that mentioned the photo was changed so confusion has left me.

  • July 13, 2010, 1:47 p.m. CST


    by adml_shake

    Not long after the movie came out the police in a town near here (I think) arrested a kid who was trying to steal movie posters from the theater. He had his face painted up like the Joker and the cops took his mug shot with it on. I think there were some other stories floating around of dumb ass teenagers doing similar things while painted up. All their mugshots had the paint on.

  • July 13, 2010, 1:54 p.m. CST

    RE: joker jail scene question

    by itrainmonkeys was a comic book movie with a billionaire vigilante who dresses like a bat and fights endless amounts of mobsters and henchmen.....I don't think they're worrying about real life police procedures at that point.

    by ericeman

    Can someone tell me if the picture Quint posted was the first or the second one? I'm finding it hard to believe he thought that skateboarding picture was real.

  • July 13, 2010, 2:10 p.m. CST

    Well that didn't work...

    by ericeman

    Was it the actual Photoshopped skateboarding one or the one of him kicking Bale? I find it hard to believe Quint would think the picture of Ledger skateboarding in full costume was real.

    by elsewhere

    Rumors.<p>In interviews right after TDK wrapped up and shortly before his death, you could tell how excited Heath was about his work as The Joker. He claimed it was the most fun he'd ever had and probably ever would have. Sadly he was right.

    I did a Google search for the skateboard picture that was apparently posted before the current picture, and I refuse to believe anyone thought that was real.

    The similarity's between Lee and Ledger where pretty startling..

    by connor187

    I remember seeing a trailer for The Crow back in the day on Sky Movies US movie chart. The voice over guy, talking about the movie before the trailer played, happen'd to mention that it was Brandon Lee's final film. Thats all he said and the trailer played. (I didn't know what he meant, I was 11) I thought The trailer was fucking brilliant, it struck a cord with me, but I also possessed a desire to find out what had happen'd to Lee. After finding out to my horror what happen'd on that set, I was intrigued. It might of been the irony of it all, (Art imitating life etc) I am not sure, but I became pretty obsessed about that film. It kind of shaped me, I mean I didn't become a goth or anything but I found the dark part of my soul defiantly....Long story short...I felt exactly the same intrigue towards The Dark Knight when I heard about Ledger. I mean I was already anticipating this film like no other, but when the sad news was broadcast I felt that same 11 year old feeling all over again. Its funny how film can effect your life. I pity the souls who don't get it.

    Heath Ledger is offline...

    by F-18

  • July 13, 2010, 3:49 p.m. CST

    I Dunno, Ledger Was A MUCH Better Actor Than Lee

    by LaserPants

    Not hating on Lee or anything, but I don't think his performance in the Crow was Oscar worthy. He was cool enough, and obviously knows his way around a fight scene (thanks, dad!), but other than that, and his tragic fate, it's a pretty forgettable role and performance.

  • July 13, 2010, 3:59 p.m. CST

    I am not sure LaserPants

    by connor187

    I was a bit of a fan of Lee before The Crow. I am talking Showdown in little Tokyo, Rapid Fire etc. He had charm back then, even if his acting was a little wooden. The Crow (like people have said on here) could/would of changed Hollywood's perception on him I think. He played a character without rules (hello Joker) a character on the edge, a character with a kind of fire in his eyes. I mean I don't think it was oscar worthy, not at all. but it was very effective.....Best scene in The Crow to use as example? The Giddeon's pawn shop scene.

    by ebonic_plague

    ...should have gotten the Oscar (or even a nomination) for the Crow, but I'd disagree about it not being a memorable performance or role. Good or bad, the guy is going to be forever associated with the role, and for what it was-- a pat revenge comic book revenge story with a gothy spin-- I think he knocked it out of the park. If you want forgettable, look at the actors in all the sequels. Lee was what made that movie work as well as it did.

    That Thor bust is horrible

    by Monolith_Jones

    Ledger was a good actor for sure. His Joker is way overrated though.

    Great feature, keep it up! Thanks, Quint!

    After yesterday I almost feel as though I MUST post that for every single one of these.

    I always wondered why they went from blue to green

    by gotilk

    Must be a good reason. In any case..<br><br>

    I think that green color is less likely to be in the shot, say, on someone's clothes.

  • July 13, 2010, 7:35 p.m. CST

    From the horrible mind of the person who wrote The Happening...

    Coming soon! <br> <br> LOL

    I love the synopsis: Devil is a supernatural thriller with M. Night Shyamalan’s signature touch.

  • July 13, 2010, 7:42 p.m. CST

    I think the old Blue screens had to be lit from somewhere

    by RPLocke

    and the green ones don't.

  • July 13, 2010, 7:43 p.m. CST

    Wait Shymalan didn't write the screenplay

    by Monolith_Jones

    I see the story is by him but not the screenplay. Is that normal?

    RIP Steinbrenner

    I only was familiar with the parody on Seinfeld, but I hear tell he loved it.

    How about a photo credit?

    by Teddy Artery

    Y'know... that thing photographers need to make a living?

  • July 13, 2010, 11:50 p.m. CST

    Is it me or was there a shot

    by Joely_Boy

    of the Joker on a skateboard in one of the trailers for the Dark Knight?

    Blue screen is generally used when doing traditional optical work with film and an optical printer. <P> Green screen is used when doing optical work in a CG/video environment. <P> Because FX elements are now compiled and even created in a computer, and add to that many films are using digital cameras on set, green screen has pretty much supplanted blue screen. Except in instances when you are shooting say a soldier with green fatigues and green camouflage paint where it would be difficult to separate the green subject from the green screen background.

    Cool pic indeed

    by AsimovLives

    I'll never understand the complains about the batsuit for BATMAN BEGINS and THE DARK KNIGHT. I can understand the complains of the actor and stunts that have to use it. But from the viewers, not so much.

    It's a catch 22 though. He gave the performance of his life right before he died, but it was because he died that it was the performance of his life.

  • July 14, 2010, 4:02 a.m. CST

    And seriously Quint...

    by MandrakeRoot

    you thought that skateboard pic was real? Think it might be time to either shut down the ol' column, or hand over the reins. Sorry chap.

  • July 14, 2010, 5:27 a.m. CST


    by darth_hideous

    quint really thought the skateboard pic wasn't photoshopped? weeeeeeak. mandrakeroot is right, either shut down the column or hand the controls over to someone a little more competent

    Role research

    by Apple Octopus

    Isn't that one of the positions Heath mastered for his Brokeback Mounting role?

    Heath Ledger

    by Crumb

    My buddy was an extra on TDK and he said that Heath was a very nice but quiet guy. He used to hang out and smoke with the extras on set. He was also very serious about the role and was said to remain in character a lot. He also said that Heath cameos in a background scene in the MCU as someone in a line up. I've never seen that and perhaps it was removed in the final cut. Sounded like a nice guy. RIP.

    by Sailor Rip

    Yeah but if you're saying that to TRY and annoy me it's not as annoying as people just randomly saying it. So go ahead.

  • July 14, 2010, 8:52 a.m. CST

    Now we know what killed Heath Ledger.

    by cookylamoo

    Hanging upside down for hours can't be good for your brain cells.

  • July 14, 2010, 11:33 a.m. CST

    seriously bad taste

    Heath Ledger's Dead?

    Damn...great career move, kid!

  • July 14, 2010, 2:09 p.m. CST

    As a writer

    by mychuma

    I see the genius involved in writing, acting an directing the Joker in TDK. And this scene made me dizzy in IMAX!! RIP Heath.

    Any pics from the set of Gigli.

    Don't be so harsh on the guy.

    by crucifictorious

    I can't believe some people are telling Quint to shut down the column or have someone else do it because he thought the skateboard picture was real. That's ridiculous. This is a cool and fun little column, and I don't think he should have to quit doing it because of one, harmless and quickly corrected mistake.

    ...but not today." ToD is a great Indy film. Raiders is the best. Last Crusade is good, KOTC has some fine moments, is entertaining overall but has some real flaws, yes the weakest but not bad enough to ruin the series as some of my fellow talkbackers feel. Just my humble opinion, tell me to fuck off if you feel differently...

  • July 19, 2010, 7:03 a.m. CST

    Ah shit...

    by I AM ROCKO

    ...I'm bored at work so am catching up on AICN, especially the behind the scene photo articles; I have two windows open at the same time, one with the Temple of Doom photo story and the other The Dark Knight joker photo- I signed on and commented on the wrong article!!!!! Let the abuse begin...still I stand behind my comments around Indy films...LOL!

    Ledger wasn't that good.

    by MajorFrontbum

    It was the publics fascination with dead celebrities, that catapulted this film to financial success and critical acclaim. Open your fucking eyes and ears sheep.

  • Aug. 12, 2010, 9:11 a.m. CST

    Ledger WAS that good.

    by UltimaRex

    There was huge buzz about Ledger's Joker BEFORE he died. The performance was amazing. Period.

  • Aug. 27, 2010, 12:37 p.m. CST

    never noticed

    by Wookie_1995
