In Memoriam: Remembering Heath Ledger

| Filed under: R.I.P.Heath Ledger

A mournful day for those who loved this bright, bright star.

Five years ago today, we suddenly found ourselves in a world where Heath Ledger no longer existed. The immensely talented actor, who brought characters like the Joker and Ennis Del Mar to life so beautifully on screen, was taken from his daughter, his still loving ex-wife Michelle Williams and the rest of his family from an accidental overdose.

Today, we send our thoughts and prayers to Michelle, Matilda and all who loved Heath and remember all the beautiful things about him, like his talent, his big heart and his gorgeous, dazzling smile!

You’re truly missed, Heath! Wherever you are, here’s hoping you're making people smile as wide as you used to!

Check out the pictures (below) to remember the life of Heath Ledger, and check out the video (above) to relive one of his most adorable moments on screen!

From one award-winning film to another? Anne Hathaway can only hope her next film will keep the momentum going!

The script will be written by Abi Morgan and is said to be a “modern-day retelling” of the play, set to take place in mid-20th century Genovia Italy!

Of course, this wouldn’t be the first time

In light of the Dark Knight rampage undertaken by James Holmes at an Aurora, CO movie theater Friday which left 12 dead and 59 injured, politicians and celebrities have spoken in favor of stricter gun control laws in the US.

It has been confirmed that Holmes purchased the weapons used in the attack, an AR-15 assault rifle, a Remmington 12-guage shotgun and 2 40-caliber glock handguns, LEGALLY.

AND, it is suspected that James garnered inspiration from DC Comics' Joker character - a famous villain in the Batman universe who was expertly portrayed by the late Heath Ledger in 2008's The Dark Knight.

Heath Ledger's father is now speaking out regarding this fatal, depraved event, and expressed:

At this rate, The Dark Knight Rises might outgross John Carter before opening night, LOLz!!

The pre-sale numbers for Christopher Nolan's next and — supposedly — last Batman film are a clear bat-signal of success on the horizon!

The demand is soooo ridiculously high that IMAX screens across the country are even selling out $40 triple features that start with Batman Begins, continue with Heath Ledger's Dark Knight, and finish with a midnight premiere of TDKR!!

the dark knight rises box office expectations

Unless you live under a rock, it's no surprise to hear that The Dark Knight Rises is going to be a blockbuster. Like a big, BIG blockbuster.

In fact, it's going to make so much money at the box office that it is the only 2012 release that has a chance of beating any of the records set by The Avengers.

The final installment of Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy is expected to make over $150 million during its opening weekend in July, which is what Marvel's movie was expected to rake in before it ACTUALLY made $207.4 million!
