The stars of The Dark Knight came out early in Tokyo this morning to keep the Batman mania going overseas. Christian Bale and Maggie Gyllenhaal showed off their smiles, while Aaron Eckhart looked a little serious after the big premiere last night. As usual, Christian made sure to pay homage to his dear friend Heath Ledger, saying, "I enjoyed very much our first scene together . . . because it was the first time I got to see what Heath was really going to do . . . Also, you could see how much he got [by] playing this character. He really got satisfaction out of it." With his tragic passing still fresh in our minds, it's beautiful to see that Heath is very much a part of one of the last movies he poured his heart into.
