Every time we think of Christopher Nolan, we think, “Brilliant!”. Four years ago, he directed “The Dark Knight” – it blew our minds. And until today, the movie still withstands the test of time. Admit it – if you could, you’d watch it over and over again too. If not for Christopher Nolan’s wonderful work then perhaps for the late Heath Ledger‘s best ever acting role.

Yet, it’s only right to credit Christopher Nolan for the A-list cast.


Come 19th July 2012, although it was reported that he was initially hesitant about returning to the series for a second time, Mr. Nolan will have yet another notable film to add into his curriculum vitae.

The movie takes place eight years after Batman (played by Christian Bale) took the fall for Two Face’s crimes. Two Face aka District Attorney, Harvey Dent, had his reputation protected and his crimes hidden because Batman (like a true hero) assumed all responsibility for him. But in the interest of being a true hero, he is then subsequently hunted by the Gotham City Police Department.

Finally, Batman returns to Gotham, where a new terrorist leader, Bane (played by Tom Hardy) is busy overwhelming Gotham’s finest. His return also sees to an introduction to the mysterious but beautiful Selina Kyle aka Catwoman (played by Anne Hathaway).

Could it be? An enemy and a new love interest all at once? Or are they both villians?:

As The Dark Knight, he is to resurface to stop Bane’s plans to destroy the city. But how is he to do that when the city has branded him an enemy?

When asked about “The Dark Knight Rises”, Anne Hathaway said, “I mean, honestly, like, wait till you see this movie. Christopher Nolan is doing insane things in it. And it’s gonna be marvelous and it’s gonna be way beyond what anyone imagines that it could be.”

We’ve also heard other interesting things such as the movie being filmed in various locations, from one end of the globe to the other such as India, London, Notthingham, Glasgow, Los Angeles, New York, New Jersery, and Pittsburgh. You could say it travelled far and wide.

Also, in several instances, the production of “The Dark Knight Rises” did take a toll on the budget when accidents occurred, though no deaths were recorded and no one was injured.

Perhaps the funniest and most “Ouch!”-worthy accident reported was when Anne Hathaway’s stunt double crashed into an IMAX camera while filming a sequence that required her to ride a “Batpod” down a flight of stairs during a riot. No injuries, but the camera was destroyed.

We take it most of you will be looking out for that scene then when “The Dark Knight Rises” is released in our cinemas nationwide on the 19th of July 2012.
