The Dark Knight Rises (DVD)

The Dark Knight Rises is a 2012 superhero film directed by Christopher Nolan, who co-wrote the screenplay with his brother Jonathan Nolan, and the story with David S. Goyer. The film is based on the DC Comics character Batman, it is the final installment in Nolan s The Dark Knight trilogy, and the sequel to The Dark Knight (2008). The film stars Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne / Batman, alongside Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Anne Hathaway, Tom Hardy, Marion Cotillard, Joseph Gordon Levitt, and Morgan Freeman. Eight years after the events of The Dark Knight, the revolutionary Bane forces Bruce Wayne to resume his role as Batman and save Gotham City from nuclear destruction.

Christopher Nolan was hesitant about returning to the series for a third film, but agreed after developing a story with his brother and Goyer that he felt would conclude the series on a satisfactory note. Nolan drew inspiration from Bane s comic book debut in the 1993 Knightfall storyline, the 1986 series The Dark Knight Returns, and the 1999 storyline No Man s Land . Filming took place from May to November 2011 in locations including Jodhpur, London, Nottingham, Glasgow, Los Angeles, New York City, Newark, and Pittsburgh. Nolan used IMAX 70 mm film cameras for much of the filming, including the first six minutes of the film, to optimize the quality of the picture. A vehicle variation of the Batplane and Batcopter termed the Bat , an underground prison set, and a new Batcave set were created specifically for the film. As with The Dark Knight, viral marketing campaigns began early during production. When filming concluded, Warner Bros. refocused its campaign, developing promotional websites, releasing the first six minutes of the film, screening theatrical trailers, and sending out information regarding the film s plot.

The Dark Knight Rises premiered in New York City on July 16, 2012. The film was released in the United States and the United Kingdom on July 20, 2012. The film received positive reviews, with praise being directed toward the performances (particularly Hardy s), action sequences, direction, screenplay, musical score, and emotional depth, with many critics deeming it a satisfying conclusion to the trilogy. The film grossed over $1 billion worldwide, making it the second film in the Batman film series to earn $1 billion, and the highest grossing Batman film to date. In addition to being Nolan s highest-grossing film, it became the seventh-highest-grossing film of all time at the time of its release, as well as the third-highest-grossing film of 2012. It was named one of the top 10 films of 2012 by the American Film Institute. It is considered one of the greatest superhero films of all time, as well as one of the best films of the 2010s.


Bane, a masked terrorist and former member of the League of Shadows, abducts nuclear physicist Dr. Leonid Pavel from a CIA aircraft over Uzbekistan.

Eight years after the death of District Attorney Harvey Dent, Batman has disappeared. Organized crime has been eradicated in Gotham City thanks to the Dent Act giving expanded powers to the police. Commissioner James Gordon has kept the criminal acts of Dent after his disfigurement a secret and allowed the blame for his crimes to fall on Batman. He has prepared a speech revealing the truth but decides not to read it. Bruce Wayne has become a recluse, and Wayne Enterprises is losing money.

Bane arrives in Gotham and sets up his base in the city sewers. Bane prompts Bruce s corporate rival John Daggett to buy Bruce s fingerprints. Cat burglar Selina Kyle obtains Bruce s prints from Wayne Manor for Daggett, but she is double-crossed at the exchange and alerts the police. Gordon and the police arrive and pursue Bane and Daggett s henchmen into the sewers while Kyle flees. The henchmen capture Gordon and take him to Bane, where Bane discovers the speech. Gordon escapes and is found by rookie GCPD officer John Blake. Blake, a fellow orphan who figured out Bruce s secret identity, confronts him and convinces him to return as Batman.

Bane attacks the Gotham Stock Exchange by using Bruce s fingerprints in a series of transactions that leaves Bruce bankrupt. Batman resurfaces after eight years while intercepting Bane and his subordinates. Bruce s butler, Alfred Pennyworth, is unconvinced that Bruce is strong enough to fight Bane and resigns in hope to save him but only after admitting that he burned a letter that Rachel Dawes left for him saying she was going to marry Dent. Bruce finds comfort in new Wayne Enterprises CEO Miranda Tate, and the two become lovers. Using the stolen transactions, Bane expands his operations and kills Daggett.

Kyle agrees to take Batman to Bane but instead leads him into Bane s trap. Bane reveals that he intends to fulfill Ra s al Ghul s mission to destroy Gotham. Batman fights Bane in a brawl, but Bane defeats him, dealing a crippling blow to his back before taking him abroad to an underground prison where escape is virtually impossible. The inmates tell Bruce the story of Ra s al Ghul s child, who was born and raised in the prison before escaping — the only prisoner to have done so.

Bane traps Gotham s police in the sewers and destroys the bridges surrounding the city. He kills mayor Anthony Garcia and forces Pavel to convert the Wayne Enterprises fusion reactor core into a decaying neutron bomb before killing him as well. Outside Blackgate Penitentiary, Bane reads Gordon s speech to a crowd, revealing the truth about Harvey Dent. Shortly after he releases the prisoners of Blackgate, he instates martial law in the city, and exiles and kills Gotham s elite in kangaroo courts presided over by Jonathan Crane.

Five months later, Bruce escapes from the prison and returns to Gotham. As Batman, he frees the police, and they clash with Bane s army in the streets; during the battle, Batman overpowers Bane. Tate intervenes and stabs Batman, revealing herself as Talia al Ghul, Ra s al Ghul s daughter. She attempts to activate the bomb s detonator, but the bomb fails to activate due to Gordon successfully blocking the signal. Talia leaves to find the bomb while Bane prepares to kill Batman, but Kyle arrives and kills Bane. Batman and Kyle pursue Talia, hoping to bring the bomb back to the reactor chamber where it can be stabilized. Talia s truck crashes, but she remotely floods and destroys the reactor chamber before dying. With no way to stop the detonation, Batman uses his aerial craft, the Bat, to haul the bomb far over the bay, where it safely explodes. Before takeoff, Batman subtly reveals his identity to Gordon.

In the aftermath, Batman is presumed dead and honored as a hero. Wayne Manor becomes an orphanage and Bruce s estate is left to Alfred. Gordon finds the Bat-Signal repaired, while Lucius Fox discovers that Bruce had fixed the malfunctioning auto-pilot on the Bat. Alfred discovers that Bruce is alive and in a relationship with Kyle. Blake, whose legal first name is revealed as Robin, resigns from the GCPD and receives a parcel from Bruce leading him to the Batcave.


  • Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne / Batman:A billionaire socialite who dedicates himself to protecting Gotham City from its criminal underworld, as a feared vigilante. Nolan has stated that, due to the eight-year gap between The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises, he s an older Bruce Wayne; he s not in a great state. Bale employed a martial arts discipline called the Keysi Fighting Method, now modified for Wayne s current state and Bane s style. Bale has stated that The Dark Knight Rises will be his final Batman film. Bale acknowledged that Batman is not a healthy individual, this is somebody that is doing good, but he s right on the verge of doing bad . Bale clarifies that He doesn t want to forget. He wants to maintain that anger he felt at that injustice . Bale felt bittersweet about leaving the franchise, saying that it was like saying goodbye to an old friend.
  • Michael Caine as Alfred Pennyworth:Bruce s trusted butler and confidant, who acts as a father figure to Wayne but is unable to accept Wayne s desire to revive his Batman persona, even resigning from his position to impress the seriousness of his position upon him. Christopher Nolan emphasized the emotional bond between Pennyworth and Wayne, stressing its importance in the previous films and predicting that the relationship will be strained as it never has before.
  • Gary Oldman as James Gordon:The Commissioner of the Gotham City Police Department, and one of the city s few honest police officers. Oldman described the character s work in cleaning up Gotham City as having left him world-weary and slightly bored, likening Gordon to a soldier who leaps at the chance to be on the front lines. His life has taken a turn for the worse since The Dark Knight; his wife has left him and taken their children, and the mayor is planning to dismiss him from his job. Gordon feels guilty over his role in covering up Harvey Dent s crimes and is prepared to resign from his position as Commissioner over it, but then senses that Gotham is about to come under threat.
  • Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle / Catwoman:A professional cat burglar, grifter, and femme fatale who establishes a playful, teasing relationship with Wayne that takes some of the somberness away from his character , and pursues a clean slate (a computer program rumored to be able to erase a person s criminal history) when she crosses paths with both Wayne and Batman. Hathaway auditioned not knowing what role she was being considered for. Hathaway described the role as being the most physically demanding she had ever played, and confessed that while she thought of herself as being fit, she had to redouble her efforts in the gym to keep up with the demands of the role. Hathaway trained extensively in martial arts for the role, and looked to Hedy Lamarr—who was the initial inspiration for the comic book character—in developing her own performance. Batman Begins and The Dark Knight writer David S. Goyer had previously ruled out in 2008 including Catwoman in a third film for having already appeared in Tim Burton s Batman Returns, portrayed by Michelle Pfeiffer.
  • Tom Hardy as Bane:A mysterious and physically imposing revolutionary villain who was excommunicated from the League of Shadows and portrays himself as a liberator of pain . He is desperate to continue Ra s al Ghul s legacy by destroying Gotham. The character was chosen by Christopher Nolan because of his desire to see Batman tested on both a physical and mental level. According to costume designer Lindy Hemming, the character wears a mask that supplies him with an analgesic gas to relieve pain he suffers from an injury sustained early in his story . Hardy intended to portray the character as more menacing than Robert Swenson s version of the character in Joel Schumacher s Batman & Robin and that in order to do so, his portrayal entailed creating a contradiction between his voice and body. Hardy gained 30 pounds (14 kg) for the role, increasing his weight to 200 pounds (90 kg). Hardy based Bane s voice on several influences, which include Bartley Gorman and the character s comic book heritage. Bane claims that his revolution s enemies are the rich and the corrupt, who he contends are oppressing the people .
  • Marion Cotillard as Miranda Tate / Talia al Ghul:The current CEO of Wayne Enterprises who encourages a still-grieving Bruce to rejoin society and continue his father s philanthropic works but is later revealed to be the daughter of Ra s al Ghul and Bane s accomplice. Cotillard also does her own dub-over voice in both the European and Canadian French dubs of the film.Joey King as Young Talia al Ghul
  • Joey King as Young Talia al Ghul
  • Joseph Gordon-Levitt as John Blake:A young police officer whose instincts lead him to believe that there is trouble on the horizon and is promoted to detective by Gordon when the elder cop saw something of himself within the younger. Blake represents the idealism that Gordon and Bruce Wayne once held, but soon lost in their battle against crime in the city. The film reveals his legal name to be Robin John Blake, an homage to Batman s sidekick in the comics, Robin.
  • Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox: The ex-CEO turned executive vice president of Wayne Enterprises, who runs the company on Wayne s behalf and serves as his armorer for the Batsuit, providing him with high-tech equipment and discreetly developing cutting-edge technology and weaponry, even as Wayne Enterprises starts losing money.

Cillian Murphy reprises his role as Dr. Jonathan Crane / Scarecrow from previous films, as does Liam Neeson as Henri Ducard / Ra s al Ghul, who appears to Bruce in a hallucination, and Christopher Nolan s uncle John Nolan as Douglas Fredericks, a board member of Wayne Enterprises. Josh Pence portrays a young Ra s al Ghul in scenes set thirty years before the events of Batman Begins. Nestor Carbonell also returns as Anthony Garcia, Gotham s mayor. Other cast members include Aidan Gillen as CIA operative Bill Wilson (referred to solely as CIA in the film s dialogue; the character s name is revealed in the film s novelization); Rob Brown and Desmond Harrington as police officers; Josh Stewart as Bane s right-hand man, Barsad; Christopher Judge as one of Bane s henchmen; Noel Gugliemi as Bane s exile compelled; and Tom Conti as a prisoner. William Devane portrays the President of the United States. Aaron Eckhart expressed enthusiasm in returning for a sequel if asked, although he later stated Nolan verified that his character, Harvey Dent / Two-Face, was dead, and only archive footage of Eckhart from The Dark Knight appears in the film.

Several members of the Pittsburgh Steelers have cameo appearances as members of the fictional Gotham Rogues football team in the film, including Ben Roethlisberger, Hines Ward, Troy Polamalu, Willie Colon, Maurkice Pouncey, Mike Wallace, Heath Miller, Aaron Smith, Ryan Clark, James Farrior, LaMarr Woodley, and Casey Hampton, and former Steelers head coach Bill Cowher as the head coach of the Rogues.

Thomas Lennon, who had appeared as a doctor in Memento, once again plays a doctor. India Wadsworth plays the wife of Ra s al Ghul and the mother of Talia.



The key thing that makes the third film a great possibility for us is that we want to finish our story rather than infinitely blowing up the balloon and expanding the story Unlike the comics, these things don t go on forever in film and viewing it as a story with an end is useful. Viewing it as an ending, that sets you very much on the right track about the appropriate conclusion.

—Christopher Nolan, confirming his involvement in The Dark Knight Rises.

In 2005, David S. Goyer confirmed that he wrote treatments for two films involving the Joker; the first would involve Batman, Harvey Dent, and Commissioner Gordon hunting the Joker, while the second would have the Joker scarring Dent and turning him into Two-Face during his trial. The third treatment ended in the same way as the final version of The Dark Knight Rises. Other aspects of the third treatment were incorporated into The Dark Knight. However, Heath Ledger s family stated that he was planning on reprising his role as the Joker before his death. After Ledger s death, Christopher Nolan decided not to recast the role out of respect for his performance, and initially was hesitant to make a third film.

Warner Bros. president of production Jeff Robinov had hoped a third film would be released in 2011 or 2012. Nolan wanted the story for the third installment to keep him emotionally invested. On a more superficial level, I have to ask the question, he reasoned, how many good third movies in a franchise can people name? Nolan said that he never even thought a third film was possible in the foreword for his book The Art and Making of the Dark Knight Trilogy. Nolan only agreed to a third film on the basis of finding a worthwhile story, fearing that he would become bored halfway through production if he discovered the film to be unnecessary. By December 2008, Nolan completed a rough story outline, before he committed himself to Inception. Later in December, Alan F. Horn confirmed that while discussions with Nolan about a third film were ongoing, no casting had been done, and Horn denied all such rumors. Before Nolan confirmed his involvement, Gary Oldman had said he was confident Nolan would return.

Following the success of the Joker in The Dark Knight, studio executives wished for the Riddler to be included as the primary villain as he was considered a similar character and encouraged the casting of Leonardo DiCaprio. However, Nolan wanted the antagonist to be vastly different from the previous incarnations and committed to using Bane instead, citing the need for a character with a physical presence within the film. He was initially unfamiliar with the character s back-story, but pointed out the appeal of an archetype, labelling it as the extreme of some type of villainy . When comparing the choice of Bane with the Joker, Nolan highlighted the Joker as an example of diabolical, chaotic anarchy and has a devilish sense of humor , juxtaposing him against Bane, whom he likened to a classic movie monster with a terrific brain. Nolan has said that his draft of the script was inspired by Charles Dickens 1859 novel A Tale of Two Cities, which centers around the French Revolution. This homage to Dickens was briefly illustrated by having Bane inconspicuously finger knit paracord in the film, symbolizing his literary character Madame Defarge, and more overtly by Commissioner Gordon s eulogy for Bruce Wayne, which is taken directly from A Tale of Two Cities.

On February 9, 2010, it was announced that Nolan had cracked the story and was committed to return to the project. Shortly afterward, it was announced David S. Goyer and Jonathan Nolan were working on a screenplay. Goyer would leave the project during pre-production to begin work on Man of Steel; Jonathan continued writing the script based on the story by his brother Chris and Goyer. Nolan said that his brother s original draft was about 400 pages. The film s story line has been compared with the Batman comic book series story arc Knightfall (1993), which showcases Bane; the miniseries The Dark Knight Returns (1986), in which Batman returns to Gotham City after a ten-year absence; and the story arc No Man s Land (1999), which depicts a Gotham cut off from the rest of the world and overrun by gangs. The nickname the Dark Knight was first applied to Batman in Batman #1 (1940), in a story written by Bill Finger. Nolan confirmed the Joker would not return in the third film, and dismissed rumors that he considered using unused footage of Heath Ledger from The Dark Knight. Reportedly, before his death, Ledger had plans to reprise the role of the Joker in the third film after enjoying his time filming The Dark Knight, a notion supported by Two-Face actor Aaron Eckhart. The Dark Knight Rises reunited Nolan with many of his past collaborators, including cinematographer Wally Pfister, production designer Nathan Crowley, editor Lee Smith, costume designer Lindy Hemming, special effects supervisors Paul Franklin and Chris Corbould, and composer Hans Zimmer.


During location scouting in December 2010, Nolan began searching for locations such as India, Romania, and Michigan. According to the Romania Insider, Nolan was interested in Bucharest s historical centers, Edgar Quinet Street, the Palace of the Parliament, and the Turda salt mine. The film had an estimated budget of $250–300 million, coming down to about $230 million after tax credits. Nolan elected not to film in 3-D, but instead stated that he intended to focus on improving image quality and scale using the IMAX format. The Dark Knight Rises featured over an hour of footage shot in IMAX (by comparison, The Dark Knight contained 28 minutes). Nolan had several meetings with IMAX Vice-President David Keighley to work on the logistics of projecting films in digital IMAX venues. Wally Pfister had expressed interest in shooting the film entirely in IMAX, but because of the considerable noise made by IMAX cameras, 35mm and 70mm cameras had to be used for shooting the film s dialogue scenes, as dialogue had to be dubbed when shot with IMAX cameras. Chairman and president of the IMAX Corporation Greg Foster stated that IMAX planned to run the film in its theatres for two months, despite only being contractually committed to run the film for two weeks. Nolan also bypassed the use of a digital intermediate for the film, resulting in less manipulation of the filmed image and higher film resolution.

Filming was scheduled to start in May and conclude in November 2011. Principal photography commenced on May 6, 2011, in Jodhpur, India, at the Mehrangarh Fort before moving to Pittsburgh, where it operated under the working title Magnus Rex to reduce the visibility of the production. Shooting locations within the city included Heinz Field, the site of an American football game, with members of the Pittsburgh Steelers playing the Gotham Rogues football team. More than 11,000 extras were used to depict the shot sequence. Filming in Pittsburgh also took place at the Mellon Institute and Software Engineering Institute at Carnegie Mellon University. A letter sent out to residents and business owners detailing road closures revealed that the streets of the city would be featured as the start of film . 9-1-1 operators were told to expect an increase in calls related to gunshots and explosions in the film s production. The Pittsburgh leg of production wrapped after three weeks on August 21, 2011. The next portion of the filming began in Los Angeles in late August and finished up on October 23 after nine weeks of filming. New York and New Jersey were the next places of filming. The Trump Tower replaced the Richard J. Daley Center as the location for the headquarters of Wayne Enterprises. In November 2011, shooting shifted to Newark, New Jersey. Newark City Hall and Military Park were among the locations used for filming. Other shooting locations include London and Glasgow, the latter of which was used for additional exterior filming . Principal photography concluded on November 14, 2011. The external waterfall scene at the end of the film was shot at Sgwd Henrhyd falls, on the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park in Wales.

Production photos from filming in Pittsburgh showed a second Tumbler chassis after the first was destroyed, indicating that a new Batmobile would be in the film, following the destruction of the first in The Dark Knight. Further set photos revealed a new vehicle being transported to Wabash Tunnel, prompting speculation as to its nature. In June 2011, Autoblog confirmed the presence of the new Lamborghini Aventador on the film set.

Several accidents occurred during the production of the film. While filming at Wollaton Hall, Nottingham, a tractor-trailer crashed into the main entrance, though no one was injured. A stuntman parachutist later crashed through the roof of a home in Cairngorm Gliding Club, Feshiebridge in Scotland, and became wedged there after a failed landing during a skydiving stunt; he was not seriously injured. While filming scenes in Pittsburgh, Hathaway s stunt double crashed into an IMAX camera while filming a sequence that required her to ride a Batpod down a flight of stairs during a riot. There were no injuries, but the camera was destroyed. A second accident took place in Pittsburgh when the truck carrying the then-unidentified vehicle later termed the Bat went off-course and crashed into a lighting array, damaging the model of the aircraft. Production was delayed while the model was repaired.

Shortly before Christmas of 2011, Christopher Nolan invited several prominent directors, including Edgar Wright, Michael Bay, Bryan Singer, Jon Favreau, Eli Roth, Duncan Jones and Stephen Daldry, to Universal CityWalk s IMAX theatre for a private screening of the first six minutes of The Dark Knight Rises, which had been shot on IMAX film and edited from the original camera negative. Nolan, feeling that the use of film stock in cinema was being phased out due to the introduction of digital cinematography and projection, used this screening to make a case for the continued use of film, which he asserts still offers superior image quality to any digital format, and warned the filmmakers that unless they continued to assert their choice to use film in their productions, they may eventually lose it as an option. Nolan explained; I wanted to give them a chance to see the potential, because I think IMAX is the best film format that was ever invented. It s the gold standard and what any other technology has to match up to, but none have, in my opinion. The message I wanted to put out there was that no one is taking anyone s digital cameras away. But if we want film to continue as an option, and someone is working on a big studio movie with the resources and the power to insist film, they should say so. I felt as if I didn t say anything, and then we started to lose that option, it would be a shame. When I look at a digitally acquired and projected image, it looks inferior against an original negative anamorphic print or an IMAX one.


Costume design

Costume designer Lindy Hemming explained that Bane uses a mask to inhale an analgesic gas, which, in director Christopher Nolan s words, keeps his pain just below the threshold so he can function. In designing Bane s costume, Hemming needed it to look like an amalgam of all sorts of bits and pieces he cobbled together, as he passed through some very remote places. We made parts of his vest, for example, from fragments of an old military tent. His clothes are militaristic, but are not in any way a uniform. Hemming also designed Bane s mask to look animalistic . Costume effects supervisor Graham Churchyard created a three-dimensional model of actor Tom Hardy s face and skull to design the mask, allowing the mask to perfectly conform to the contours of Hardy s face. Hemming personally designed Bane s coat, which she admitted took two years to complete. Taking inspiration from a Swedish army jacket and a frock coat from the French Revolution, it was designed to make Bane look equal parts dictatorial and revolutionary. The design was difficult as Hemming struggled to find a tailor in Los Angeles who could work with shearling.

The Batsuit consisted of 110 separate pieces, each of which had to be replicated dozens of times over the course of the production. The base layer was made of a polyester mesh that is utilized by the military and high-tech sports manufacturers because of its breathability and moisture-wicking properties. Molded pieces of flexible urethane were then attached to the mesh, to form the overall body armor plating. Carbon fiber panels were placed inside the sections on the legs, chest and abdomen. The cowl was sculpted from a cast of Bale s face and head to become a perfect fit for Christian Bale. The suit remained unchanged for the film since The Dark Knight.

In creating Selina Kyle s catsuit, two layers of material were used, the outer layer being polyurethane-coated spandex embossed with a hexagonal pattern. The catsuit also consisted of elbow-length gloves, a utility belt, and thigh-high boots with spike heels.

Production design

Concept artist Tully Summers commented on Nolan s style of cinematography when asked about the difference between his designs for this film and fantasy-based designs for Men in Black 3: The difference for me was Christopher Nolan s visual style. One of the things that makes his Batman movies so compelling is their tone of plausibility. He will often prefer a raw, grittier design over one that is very sleek and product design pretty. It s sort of a practical military aesthetic. This stuff is made to work, not impress shoppers. The Dark Knight Rises is a war film. Producer Emma Thomas stated this Batman film has a different visual aesthetic from the first two Nolan-directed features, explaining that it s meant to be winter in Gotham, so that right there is going to lend a whole different look to the film.

The film introduces a vehicle that has been compared with the Batplane and the Batcopter, dubbed the Bat . In designing the Bat, Nathan Crowley approached it as if it were an actual military project, emphasising the need for it to fit into the same family as the Tumbler and the Batpod. The final version of the Bat takes its design cues from the Harrier Jump Jet, Bell Boeing V-22 Osprey and the Boeing AH-64 Apache. Chris Corbould described the Bat s size and shape as presenting a major challenge for filming given Christopher Nolan s emphasis on practical effects over computer-generated imagery. In order to make the Bat fly , it was variously supported by wires, suspended from cranes and helicopters, and mounted on a purpose-built vehicle with hydraulic controls to simulate movement.

When designing the Batcave set, Crowley and fellow production designer Kevin Kavanaugh hit upon the idea of flooding the Batcave and having Batman s equipment, the Batsuit and a supercomputer rise from the water. Another set was designed at Cardington as an underground prison , a rough-hewn labyrinth of stone cells in a vast abyss with a 120 foot (37 m) vertical shaft leading to the surface. Exteriors above the prison were filmed in Jodhpur, India, chosen because the forbidding landscape added to the desolation .


In an interview in October 2010, composer Hans Zimmer confirmed that he would be returning to score The Dark Knight Rises. James Newton Howard was offered to return and write the score with Zimmer as he did for Batman Begins and The Dark Knight, but he chose not to because he noted that the chemistry established between Zimmer and Nolan during the making of Inception would make him seem like a third wheel . Zimmer included several cues from the earlier scores but explained that he wanted to go in a completely different direction for Bane s theme.

The film features a prevalent chant of the phrase Deshi Basara . In November 2011, Zimmer crowdsourced online audio recordings of the chant to be used in the film s score. When asked about the chant for clarification, Zimmer said, The chant became a very complicated thing because I wanted hundreds of thousands of voices, and it s not so easy to get hundreds of thousands of voices. So, we tweeted and we posted on the internet, for people who wanted to be part of it. It seemed like an interesting thing. We ve created this world, over these last two movies, and somehow I think the audience and the fans have been part of this world. We do keep them in mind.

Just like Batman Begins and The Dark Knight, the film s main theme consists in just two notes repeated, representing Batman s pain and guilt. Many times is also reprised in small parts Molossus , Batman s main action theme in the trilogy.


The official website launched in May 2011, introducing a viral marketing campaign similar to the one used to promote The Dark Knight. The website streamed an encrypted audio file described by users as chanting. Users decrypted the audio to the Twitter hashtag, #TheFireRises . Warner Bros. removed a pixel from the webpage for every tweet using the hashtag. The website revealed the first official image of Bane.

In July 2011, a teaser trailer leaked online before its official release with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2. The studio released the teaser three days after the leak. The trailer received mixed responses; Stephen Spencer Davis of Slate wrote it successfully built hype, while Kofi Outlaw of Screen Rant showed disappointment, claiming it was more of an announcement trailer than an actual teaser trailer. Outlaw criticized the quality, writing that a scene depicting Commissioner Gordon in a hospital bed was overly dramatic, had hammy dialogue, and was difficult to understand due to Gordon s labored breathing. Outlaw wrote that the sweeping shot of Gotham City had poor CGI and was too reminiscent of the Inception trailer. The theatrical trailer leaked online, like the teaser trailer, before being released the following week attached to theatrical prints of Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows. Critics noted political undertones with dialogue foreshadowing the theme of income inequality and an Occupy Gotham campaign within the world of the story. Receiving more than 12.5 million views in the first 24 hours after its release, the trailer set the record for most combined downloads from iTunes, beating the previous record held by The Avengers. However, the second trailer for The Avengers again set the record with 13.7 million downloads. Warner Bros. attached a second theatrical trailer for The Dark Knight Rises to theatrical prints of The Avengers. An unnamed Warner Brothers executive clarified that We see this placement as a good strategic decision. We always want our trailers to be seen with films that people want to see—and a lot of people will be going to The Avengers! The executive also commented that the trailer will provide the best potential exposure for TDKR. Warner Bros. released the trailer online on April 30, 2012, approximately four days before they attached it to theatrical prints of The Avengers.

Continuing a method used with The Dark Knight whereby the opening sequence of the film was attached to IMAX prints of I Am Legend seven months before release, a six-minute prologue of The Dark Knight Rises was attached to 70mm IMAX prints of Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, again approximately seven months before release. Critical reaction to the prologue was positive. Addressing the issue in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Nolan said I think when people see the film, things will come into focus. Bane is very complex and very interesting and when people see the finished film people will be very entertained by him.

Viral marketing campaigns for the film continued as magazine companies Empire and Wired received CIA documents concerning a Dr. Leonid Pavel , with its mugshot connected to actor Alon Abutbul. According to the first document, Pavel is a missing Russian nuclear physicist, while the second document appears to be an edited transcript of a conversation discussing the handover of Dr. Pavel to the CIA by Georgian separatists, but with most of the conversation redacted. These were later shown to be plot elements of the six-minute prologue. The official Twitter account later linked to another censored document, this time, referencing Operation Early Bird . A website of the same name was discovered, revealing a countdown timer. When the countdown finished, the site presented a map showing all available theaters that would be screening the film s prologue earlier than its release. Various websites received a package that included a cylinder map of strike zones , and a fire rises T-shirt. In April 2012, the film s official website was updated with a dossier on a suspect named John Doe also known as the Batman for an arrest, with a list of several accusations. The premise of the campaign starts when the mayor of Gotham City redoubles the effort to capture Batman and anyone supporting his return in preparation for the upcoming Harvey Dent Day . The site also includes an extensive list of real-world locations where graffiti related to movement in support of the vigilante s return is located. For each tweet of a specific location marked on the list, a frame of the second theatrical trailer for the film was released on a separate website.

In January 2012, six months prior to the film s release, tickets for midnight IMAX showings in New York, San Francisco, and Los Angeles went on sale and sold out immediately. Purchased tickets surfaced for sale online for over $100, compared with their original price of $17.50.

At the American International Toy Fair, Mattel unveiled figures for Batman, Bane, Catwoman, and Batman s flying vehicle, the Bat. The Mattel figures were also released in the Movie Masters line, featuring more highly detailed and articulated presentation, and Quiktek versions that feature interchangeable accessories. Lego released building sets and mini-figures based on the film and incorporating other DC Comic characters. Additionally, Funko released a series of plush toys, Mezco Toyz released vinyl figures, and Hornby released the Batman Tumbler car. Other partners include Jakks Pacific, who created novelty and large-scale figures and plush toys, and PPW Toys, who created a Batman themed Mr. Potato Head. Various clothing items including shoes, T-shirts, hats and wallets were also produced.

A video game of the same name was released on the same day as the release of the film for the iOS and Android devices for promoting the movie. It was made by Gameloft. The game features an open world with primary focus on stealth and combat. The combat system of the game is inspired from Arkham Asylum and Arkham City. It takes place in Gotham City, with a somewhat similar but still significantly different plot from that of the movie. IGN gave it a mediocre score of 5.5/10.

The film novelization, written by author Greg Cox and published by Titan Books, was released alongside the film on July 24, 2012.

Warner Bros. partnered with Mountain Dew to do a cross-promotion that included a special paint scheme on the number 88 Chevrolet Impala owned by Hendrick Motorsports and driven by Dale Earnhardt Jr. in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. On June 17, 2012, the car won the 2012 Quicken Loans 400 at Michigan International Speedway. On July 4, 2012, the studio signed a deal with Formula One team Lotus F1 to have the film s logos appear on the Lotus E20s driven by Kimi Räikkönen and Romain Grosjean at the 2012 British Grand Prix. Räikkönen and Grosjean went on to finish the race in fifth and sixth place respectively. Warner Bros. had previously followed a similar promotion at the 2008 British Grand Prix, when the now-defunct Toyota F1 carried a livery to promote The Dark Knight.

Two digital comic books entitled Batman Origins and The Dark Knight: Prologue were released exclusively for Nokia Lumia devices. A special movie application has also been released, featuring trailers, wallpapers, movie schedules and Batman trivias. Limited editions of the Lumia 710, Lumia 800 and Lumia 900 were also released featuring a laser-etched Batman logo.


On July 6, 2012, Warner Bros. held a special IMAX screening of The Dark Knight Rises for more than one hundred reporters and critics. However, technical issues with the computer device synchronizing the sound and picture forced the studio to postpone the screening by a day. The film later premiered on July 16 at the AMC Lincoln Square Theater in New York City, followed by a European premiere on July 18 at Leicester Square in London, England. The film was released in Australia and New Zealand on July 19, and was later released in North America and the United Kingdom on July 20.

Colorado shooting

I would not presume to know anything about the victims of the shooting but that they were there last night to watch a movie. I believe movies are one of the great American art forms and the shared experience of watching a story unfold on screen is an important and joyful pastime. The movie theatre is my home, and the idea that someone would violate that innocent and hopeful place in such an unbearably savage way is devastating to me. Nothing any of us can say could ever adequately express our feelings for the innocent victims of this appalling crime, but our thoughts are with them and their families.

—Director Christopher Nolan s reaction to the theater shooting in Aurora, Colorado.

On July 20, 2012, during a midnight showing of The Dark Knight Rises at the Century 16 cinema in Aurora, Colorado, a gunman wearing a gas mask opened fire inside the theater, killing 12 people and injuring 58 others. Police responding to the shooting apprehended a suspect later identified as 24-year-old James Eagan Holmes shortly after arriving on the scene. Initial reports stated that Holmes identified himself as the Joker at the time of his arrest though this has been debunked.

Warner Bros. cancelled the Paris, Mexico, and Japan premieres of The Dark Knight Rises, and suspended the film s marketing campaign in Finland. Several broadcast networks also suspended television ads for the film in the United States. The trailer for Gangster Squad, another Warner Bros. movie included in the screening of The Dark Knight Rises, was removed as it contains a scene which shows gangsters shooting submachine guns at moviegoers through the screen, similar to the shooting in Aurora.

Director Christopher Nolan released a public statement calling the shooting unbearably savage . Other stars of the film released statements expressing their condolences, with star Christian Bale paying a personal visit to the survivors and the memorial in Aurora.

Home media

The Dark Knight Rises was released on November 28, 2012, in Hong Kong and New Zealand. On December 3, it was released in the United Kingdom, and on December 4, it was released in the United States. It is available on Blu-ray, DVD, and as a digital download. Coinciding with the release of this film, a box set of The Dark Knight Trilogy was released. The Dark Knight Rises was released on 4K UHD Blu-ray on December 19, 2017.


Box office

Hours before the midnight release of the film, several box office analysts suggested as much as a $198 million domestic opening weekend. However, in the wake of the mass shooting during a midnight screening of the film, Warner Bros. decided to not report further box office figures for the movie until Monday, July 23, 2012. As a result, other distributors also delayed the release of their official estimates as well. The shooting is also speculated to have hurt the ticket sales as E! Online reported that a North Carolina audience member had stated that this theater was kinda empty . Some reports released on July 21, 2012, said that rival studios estimated that the film grossed $75 million to $77 million on its opening day. Warner Bros. shortly after released a statement to ABC News stating that they delayed the release of their estimates for the opening day total of the film out of respect for the victims and their families, and added Warner Bros. Pictures will not be reporting box office numbers for The Dark Knight Rises throughout the weekend. Box office numbers will be released on Monday.

The Dark Knight Rises earned $448.1 million in North America, and $632.9 million in other countries, summing up to a worldwide total of $1.081 billion. Worldwide, it became the seventh-highest-grossing film of all time and the third-highest-grossing film of 2012. It had a worldwide opening weekend of $248.9 million. The film set a worldwide IMAX opening-weekend record with $23.8 million (overtaken by Avengers: Age of Ultron) and also broke the record for the fastest movie to make over $50 million in IMAX theatres. IMAX CEO Richard L. Gelfond explained this by claiming, Audiences are clearly seeking out and embracing the film the way it was meant to be seen – in IMAX. On the 2012 Labor Day weekend, it became the third film distributed by Warner Bros. and the thirteenth film in cinematic history to cross the $1 billion mark. The film also became the second movie (after Avatar) to reach $100 million in worldwide IMAX grosses.

North America

The Dark Knight Rises opened on Friday, July 20, 2012. It earned an estimated $30.6 million in midnight showings, which was the second-highest midnight gross behind Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 ($43.5 million). It did, however, set an IMAX midnight-gross record with $2.3 million (overtaken by Avengers: Age of Ultron). The film made $75.8 million during its opening day, achieving, at the time, the third-highest single and opening day tally of all time. On July 23, 2012, it was announced that the film grossed $160.9 million for its debut weekend, which was the third-highest opening weekend ever, at the time, behind Marvel s The Avengers ($207.4 million) and Deathly Hallows – Part 2 ($169.2 million). However, it did set an opening-weekend record for a 2D film (previously held by The Dark Knight) and an IMAX opening-weekend record with $19.0 million (previously held by Marvel s The Avengers). The film also held the top spot at the box office for its second and third weekends. In North America, it is the thirteenth-highest-grossing film, the third-highest-grossing 2012 film, as well as the sixth-highest-grossing superhero film and film based on comics. Box Office Mojo estimates that the film sold more than 55 million tickets in the US.

Other territories

Outside North America, the film opened with $88.0 million from 7,173 theaters in just 17 markets. It was in first place at the box office outside North America for four consecutive weekends. Its three largest markets are the UK, Ireland and Malta ($90.3 million), where it is the highest-grossing superhero film, China ($52.8 million) and Australia ($44.2 million).

Critical response

The Dark Knight Rises received highly positive reviews from critics. Many have named it one of the best films of 2012, and one of the best superhero films of all time. Film review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes gave The Dark Knight Rises an approval rating of 87% based on 372 reviews, and a rating average of 8/10. The web site s critical consensus reads, The Dark Knight Rises is an ambitious, thoughtful, and potent action film that concludes Christopher Nolan s franchise in spectacular fashion. Metacritic, another review aggregator, assigned the film a weighted average score of 78 out of 100, based on 45 critics, indicating generally favorable reviews . CinemaScore reported that audiences gave the film an average grade of A on an A+ to F scale.

Robbie Collin of The Daily Telegraph granted the film a maximum score of five stars, stating that it is a superhero film without a superhero, comparing it with The Godfather Part II and praising Hardy s performance as well as the film s intricate plot and narrative. Kenneth Turan of the Los Angeles Times thought the film was potent, persuasive and hypnotic and that it was more than an exceptional superhero movie, it is masterful filmmaking by any standard. The Playlists Todd Gilchrist wrote A cinematic, cultural and personal triumph, The Dark Knight Rises is emotionally inspiring, aesthetically significant and critically important for America itself – as a mirror of both sober reflection and resilient hope. IGN gave it a 9 out of 10, noting similarities in tone and theme to Batman Begins over the trilogy s second installment, The Dark Knight, but also describing Bane as that bit less interesting to watch than Ledger s Joker, despite praising his menacing voice and body language-driven performance . The Guardian scored the film four out of five stars, calling it a film of granite, monolithic intensity , yet also calling it a hammy, portentous affair . Andrew O Hehir of Salon writes if The Dark Knight Rises is a fascist film, it s a great fascist film, and arguably the biggest, darkest, most thrilling and disturbing and utterly balls-out spectacle ever created for the screen . Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times gave the film three out of four stars, stating the film begins slowly with a murky plot and too many new characters, but builds to a sensational climax. This was the final Batman film and also the final DC film Ebert reviewed before his death in 2013. Film critic Richard Roeper gave the film an A , calling it a majestic, gorgeous, brutal and richly satisfying epic , and citing the final scenes of the picture as the best five minutes of any film this year. The London Film Review gave the film a B and said Nolan s film is a reminder that superheroes aren t merely a frivolous distraction, but an embodiment of our best selves. The film was crowned by Forbes as the best modern comic book superhero adaptation on screen, outranking both its main summer blockbuster competitor, Marvel s The Avengers, and the trilogy s previous installment The Dark Knight. It was selected for the American Film Institute s top 10 films of 2012, in addition to being on over 140 top 10 end-of the year lists.

CNN s Tom Charity said the film was a disappointingly clunky and bombastic conclusion to a superior series and called it Nolan s worst film. Anthony Lane of The New Yorker says that the story is dense, overlong, and studded with references that will make sense only to those intimate with Nolan s previous excursions into Batmanhood .

In reaction to fan backlash to some of the negative reviews, Rotten Tomatoes chose to disable user commentary for the film leading up to its release. Some fans had threatened violence against critics while others threatened to take down the websites of movie critics who had given the film a negative review.

In 2014, Empire Magazine ranked The Dark Knight Rises the 72nd greatest film ever made on their list of The 301 Greatest Movies Of All Time as voted by the magazine s readers. In a poll of 1,000 British adults by Virgin Media in 2018, the film came in eighth place for people s choice of favorite superhero movie. Total Film named it the 48th best film of the 2010s. Den of Geek ranked it #61 on their list of the best movies of the decade. Film critics Richard Roeper and Roe Conn of Chicago Sun-Times, for their Best Movies of the Decade podcast, ranked The Dark Knight Rises among their list of the best action movies of the decade. In 2019, on a poll held by LADbible, The Dark Knight Rises was voted as the best film of the decade 2010–2019. The Daily Telegraph has frequently named it number one on their list of the 25 best superhero films of all time, and it was featured on their list of the 100 greatest films of all time in 2018.

In 2011, Aidan Gillen s character in the film, CIA operative Bill Wilson, became the subject of an Internet meme popular among 4chan users known as Baneposting , which references the dialogue between Wilson and Bane in the film s opening plane scene.


Writing in Salon, David Sirota, a progressive political commentator, compared The Dark Knight Rises and the game Call of Duty to 1980s popular culture reflecting the political period of the time, accusing them of perpetuating a conservative agenda: Just as so many 1980s pop culture products reflected the spirit of the Reagan Revolution s conservative backlash, we are now seeing two blockbuster, genre-shaping products not-so-subtly reflect the Tea Party s rhetorical backlash to the powerful Occupy Wall Street zeitgeist. An article in Variety reported Chuck Dixon, the cocreator of the Bane character, as saying that Bane is far more akin to an Occupy Wall Street type if you re looking to cast him politically. Catherine Shoard of the center-left British publication The Guardian said the film is a quite audaciously capitalist vision, radically conservative, radically vigilante, that advances a serious, stirring proposal that the wish-fulfilment of the wealthy is to be championed if they say they want to do good. In contrast, liberal commentator Jonathan Chait opined in New York that What passes for a right-wing movie these days is The Dark Knight Rises, which submits the rather modest premise that, irritating though the rich may be, actually killing them and taking all their stuff might be excessive. Writing in USA Today, Bryan Alexander called Bane the ultimate occupier and reported that Christian Bale was amazed that the script had foreseen the Occupy movement.

Nolan has denied that the film criticizes the Occupy movement, and insists that none of his Batman films are intended to be political: I ve had as many conversations with people who have seen the film the other way round. We throw a lot of things against the wall to see if it sticks. We put a lot of interesting questions in the air, but that s simply a backdrop for the story. What we re really trying to do is show the cracks of society, show the conflicts that somebody would try to wedge open. We re going to get wildly different interpretations of what the film is supporting and not supporting, but it s not doing any of those things. It s just telling a story. If you re saying, Have you made a film that s supposed to be criticizing the Occupy Wall Street movement? – well, obviously, that s not true.

Alternatively, politically conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh alleged that the film was biased against 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney due to Bane s name being a homophone for Bain Capital, the financial service company Romney used to head, despite the fact that the character has existed as a major Batman foe since 1993. In response, Nolan said that the comments were bizarre , while Dixon and Freeman said that the comments were ridiculous . Democratic adviser Christopher Lehane has noted the similarities between the narratives of the film and the presidential campaign.

Slovenian philosopher Slavoj Žižek pointed out that the film was inspired by the French Revolution as portrayed by novelist Charles Dickens.

Short Description

The Dark Knight Rises is a 2012 superhero film directed by Christopher Nolan, who co-wrote the screenplay with his brother Jonathan Nolan, and the story with David S. Goyer. The film is based on the DC Comics character Batman, it is the final installment in Nolan s The Dark Knight trilogy, and the sequel to The Dark Knight (2008). The film stars Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne / Batman, alongside Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Anne Hathaway, Tom Hardy, Marion Cotillard, Joseph Gordon Levitt, and Morgan Freeman. Eight years after the events of The Dark Knight, the revolutionary Bane forces Bruce Wayne to resume his role as Batman and save Gotham City from nuclear destruction.

Christopher Nolan was hesitant about returning to the series for a third film, but agreed after developing a story with his brother and Goyer that he felt would conclude the series on a satisfactory note. Nolan drew inspiration from Bane s comic book debut in the 1993 Knightfall storyline, the 1986 series The Dark Knight Returns, and the 1999 storyline No Man s Land . Filming took place from May to November 2011 in locations including Jodhpur, London, Nottingham, Glasgow, Los Angeles, New York City, Newark, and Pittsburgh. Nolan used IMAX 70 mm film cameras for much of the filming, including the first six minutes of the film, to optimize the quality of the picture. A vehicle variation of the Batplane and Batcopter termed the Bat , an underground prison set, and a new Batcave set were created specifically for the film. As with The Dark Knight, viral marketing campaigns began early during production. When filming concluded, Warner Bros. refocused its campaign, developing promotional websites, releasing the first six minutes of the film, screening theatrical trailers, and sending out information regarding the film s plot.

The Dark Knight Rises premiered in New York City on July 16, 2012. The film was released in the United States and the United Kingdom on July 20, 2012. The film received positive reviews, with praise being directed toward the performances (particularly Hardy s), action sequences, direction, screenplay, musical score, and emotional depth, with many critics deeming it a satisfying conclusion to the trilogy. The film grossed over $1 billion worldwide, making it the second film in the Batman film series to earn $1 billion, and the highest grossing Batman film to date. In addition to being Nolan s highest-grossing film, it became the seventh-highest-grossing film of all time at the time of its release, as well as the third-highest-grossing film of 2012. It was named one of the top 10 films of 2012 by the American Film Institute. It is considered one of the greatest superhero films of all time, as well as one of the best films of the 2010s.
