Warner Bros. Pictures' and Legendary Pictures' "The Dark Knight
Rises" is the epic conclusion to filmmaker Christopher Nolan's
Dark Knight trilogy.
It has been eight years since Batman vanished into the night,
turning, in that instant, from hero to fugitive. Assuming the blame
for the death of D.A. Harvey Dent, the Dark Knight sacrificed everything
for what he and Commissioner Gordon both hoped was the greater good.
For a time the lie worked, as criminal activity in Gotham City was
crushed under the weight of the anti-crime Dent Act.
But everything will change with the arrival of a cunning cat burglar
with a mysterious agenda. Far more dangerous, however, is the emergence
of Bane, a masked terrorist whose ruthless plans for Gotham drive
Bruce out of his self-imposed exile. But even if he dons the cape
and cowl again, Batman may be no match for Bane.
Leading an all-star international cast, Oscar® winner Christian
Bale ("The Fighter") again plays the dual role of Bruce
Wayne/Batman. "The Dark Knight Rises" also stars Anne
Hathaway, as Selina Kyle; Tom Hardy, as Bane; Oscar® winner
Marion Cotillard ("La Vie en Rose"), as Miranda Tate;
and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, as John Blake.
Returning to the main cast, Oscar® winner Michael Caine ("The
Cider House Rules") plays Alfred; Gary Oldman is Commissioner
Gordon; and Oscar® winner Morgan Freeman ("Million Dollar
Baby") reprises the role of Lucius Fox.
The screenplay is written by Jonathan Nolan and Christopher Nolan,
story by Christopher Nolan & David S. Goyer. The film is produced
by Emma Thomas, Christopher Nolan and Charles Roven, who previously
teamed on "Batman Begins" and the record-breaking blockbuster
"The Dark Knight." The executive producers are Benjamin
Melniker, Michael E. Uslan, Kevin De La Noy and Thomas Tull, with
Jordan Goldberg serving as co-producer. The film is based upon characters
created by Bob Kane and published by DC Comics.
Behind the scenes, "The Dark Knight Rises" reunites
the director with several of his longtime collaborators, all of
whom worked together on the "The Dark Knight." The creative
team includes director of photography Wally Pfister, who recently
won an Oscar® for his work on Nolan's "Inception";
production designers Nathan Crowley and Kevin Kavanaugh; editor
Lee Smith; and Oscar®-winning costume designer Lindy Hemming
("Topsy-Turvy"). In addition, Paul Franklin and Chris
Corbould, who both won Oscars® for the effects in "Inception,"
supervised the visual and special effects, respectively. The music
is composed by Oscar® winner Hans Zimmer ("The Lion King").
In helming the film, Christopher Nolan utilized IMAX® cameras
even more extensively than he did on "The Dark Knight,"
which had marked the first time ever that a major feature film was
even partially shot with the large-format cameras.
"The Dark Knight Rises" will be presented on 70-millimeter
film in 102 IMAX 15/70mm locations worldwide. Christopher Nolan
stated, "Having shot almost half the picture with large-format
IMAX film cameras, it is very important to me that we show 'The
Dark Knight Rises' in the IMAX film format wherever possible. Audiences
everywhere should be assured that every presentation of the film
will be of the highest standard--having benefited from the clarity
and depth IMAX cameras offer. However, these 102 screens will showcase
the original IMAX film photography in its optimum form, and I hope
anyone who has an opportunity to experience the film in these theatres
will seek it out."
Warner Bros. Pictures presents, in association with Legendary
Pictures, a Syncopy Production, a Film by Christopher Nolan, "The
Dark Knight Rises." Opening in theatres and IMAX, the film
will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner
Bros. Entertainment Company.
This film has been rated PG-13 for intense sequences of
violence and action, some sensuality and language.
