The Dark Knight Rises: Nolan Reveals New Details
According to Christopher Nolan, who is returning to helm the latest episode of the caped crusader, The Dark Knight rises will be technologically groundbreaking as he once again shuns 3D for high-definition IMAX cameras.
Nolan told the Los Angeles Times: “We want the look and feel of the film to be faithful to what has come before in the first two films. There was a large canvas and operatic sweep to The Dark Knight and we want to make a film that will carry on with that look and feel.
“There’s an intimacy at times [with the 3D effect] and we didn’t want to lose scale… Our ambition for the third movie is to complete a story that has begun. This is not starting over, this is not rebooting. We’re finishing something, and keeping a consistency with what’s come before has real value.”
He added: “We’re looking to do something technologically that’s never been done before. Our ambitions are to make a great movie.”
Studio bosses needn’t worry about losing out on the financial benefits of screening a film in 3D as, according to Nolan, audiences will have to see the film in an IMAX cinema in order to “see the benefits of the extraordinarily sharp, high-resolution”. So start saving up now for the extortionate prices of an IMAX ticket.
The Dark Knight Rises is currently scheduled for the 20th July 2012.
