MUMBAI: Batman fans have reason to be happy. The concluding movie of the Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy, The Dark Knight Rises has come bearing good news. The director has released a comprehensive featurette that integrates new footage with material released in previous trailers, and is intercut with interviews with principal cast and crew.
This featurette, all of 13 minutes, describes the storyline, profiles the characters and also includes behind-the-scenes footage. Commentary from everyone on the set, including decorators and stuntmen give subtle clues about the drama without revealing everything about the 2:24 hour movie.
You will also find details about the shooting locations, including that of Wayne Manor and the Batcave (now rebuilt), Pittsburgh’s football field and also the newest Batmobile (devised by Lucius Fox) which is now part hovercraft and part jet.
Expect interviews with Nolan, the producers, Oscar winner Christian Bale (The Fighter) as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Anne Hathaway (The Devil Wears Prada) as Selina Kyle/Catwoman, Tom Hardy (Inception) as Bane, and Oscar winner Marion Cotillard (La Vie en Rose). Along with them, Gary Oldman as Commissioner Gordon and Oscar winners Michael Caine (The Cider House Rules) playing Alfred and Morgan Freeman (Million Dollar Baby) as Lucius Fox have also commented on their roles.
