How the Dark Knight Rose in IMAX

By Stephen Kelly on July 17, 2012

He's anti-3D, still shoots on film and believes in using as little CGI as possible -- Christopher Nolan is Hollywood's traditionalist. But for his latest, The Dark Knight Rises, Nolan needed an epic camera to match the scale of his vision for his third Batman film.

"The Imax cameras use 65-millimetre 15-perforation film advanced horizontally through the camera at 24 frames per second," explains David Keighley, Imax's chief quality officer. "The frames are nine times bigger than a traditional 35mm movie frame. For Chris [Nolan] it's the closest you can get to zooming down the road in ...

Christian Bale: 'Dark Knight Rises' Goes Full Circle

By Bruce Kirkland on July 13, 2012

LOS ANGELES - Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy is now complete with The Dark Knight Rises, a mega-movie with a staggering $250-million budget. This is it, the end, the final time Christian Bale dons the batsuit and sweats under the cowl that so suffocated him on the first film. Never again...

But is it really the end?

"In terms of Chris," Bale says in an exclusive one-on-one interview, "I think he's made it pretty clear -- which is unusual for Chris -- that this would be the last one. And I'm really the wrong person to ask because it's never ...
