That's because of Heath Ledger's untimely death. It gave the move more exposure than it would've had otherwise.
This. As soon as one dies in the entertainment business, it does nothing but help their career, or in this case a movie Heath Ledger was starring in.

Reminds of how amazing everyone thinks Michael Jackson is now that he's passes. For example, VH1 ranked Michael Jackson as the 40th greatest artist of all time just a few years before his death. When they made the list again (I believe a year or two ago) he was ranked number two. Sympathy vote much?

Note: Yes I know that VH1 makes garbage lists.
