Ledger Never Saw The Dark Knight

HEATH LEDGER never saw his final film before he died in January (08).
The Dark Knight director Chris Nolan has now screened the first trailer for the tragic actor, but he was still editing the upcoming blockbuster when Ledger lost his life.
Nolan says, "He was already on another film. It was months and months since we'd wrapped. We had really cut a lot of the film together and watched the film a couple of times and were about halfway through the edit process.
"Unfortunately he'd only seen the prologue, the introduction to his character shot with these IMAX cameras and put out as a short film in IMAX for Christmas.
"We screened it for him and he enjoyed it very much. It gave him a taste of how it was going to come across but I was never able to show him his finished performance and that's very sad."
Ledger is already receiving rave reviews for his portrayal of The Joker, with many critics suggesting the Aussie is a clear front runner for an Oscar.
