One newspaper has already asked this same question:

> A) Ledger's death was a long time coming. He had lots of personal issues he needed to resolve.


> B) Bale wasn't arrested, he went willingly with the police.

He was still arrested. Just because you go willingly with the police doesn't mean you won't be arrested.

> C) Car accidents are one of the big killers in this world. Cars are death traps.

Not really since you have to consider how much of your time is spent in a car. They certainly aren't "death traps". The chance of you dieing in a car crash is 1 in 18,585 .

But, and while this is a morbid thought, I think Morgan Freeman has to die for people to consider this movie to be cursed.

As a fan of his, I hope he makes a full recovery.
