'The Dark Knight Rises' heralds the end of the summer film season as we leave the big blockbusters behind and look forward to the serious awards contenders of the fall and winter. But is Christopher Nolan's conclusion to the trilogy worthy of an Oscar, or are we taking our wishful thinking a little too seriously?
Director Christopher Nolan is done with the 'Dark Knight' franchise - this he has said many times. And while it might seem hard for fans to believe that he is really done, Nolan wrote a goodbye letter in the foreward to the upcoming book 'The Art and Making of The Dark Knight Trilogy' that should serve as his definitive last word on Batman.
A 'Dark Knight' reboot? A 'Dark Knight' sequel? 'Dark Knight' spinoffs or prequels? Though Christopher Nolan has said he's done with the 'Dark Knight' franchise, Warner Bros. has expressed a strong interest in keeping the character going. We take a look at how Warner Bros. will take Batman beyond 'The Dark Knight Rises.'
(Major spoilers for 'The Dark Knight Rises' ahead.)
Christopher Nolan has released a statement about the shooting that happened at the midnight 'The Dark Knight Rises' screening in Aurora, Colorado last night.
Earlier this week, 'Dark Knight Rises' fans took a few critics to task for their negative reviews and by that we mean "issued death treats." Threats of violence against a movie critic for a negative review is a little extreme, but when director Christopher Nolan was asked his opinion at the 'Dark Knight Rises' London premiere, he didn't condemn that Batfans, he actually defended them.
Yesterday marked the beginning of the end of 'The Dark Knight Rises,' as all the stars and crew behind the final Christopher Nolan-directed Batman trilogy came out to New York City yesterday for the premiere. And what better location to host the 'Dark Knight Rises' premiere than the so named real-life city of Gotham.
We are painfully close to the release of 'The Dark Knight Rises,' and for those hoping to know as little as possible going in, the next couple days are going to be the roughest. Christopher Nolan's final entry in the Batman franchise is said to have some twists and turns, and it's going to get harder and harder to not have them spoiled. Now there's a new (and likely final) trailer for the movie, and - for better or worse - it only shows a little bit of new footage.
