The Dark Knight Rises - Christopher Nolan's Third Installment of The Batman Series
The Dark Knight Rises, opening in the USA on July 20, will not only be one of the biggest American superhero blockbusters for 2012, but will be the most profitable of the Batman franchises. Christopher Nolan returns for a third time around to direct the film. Nolan co-wrote the screenplay with his brother Jonathan Nolan and the story with David S. Goyer.
Time will tell if Rush Limbaugh's jest about "Bane" being linked to Romney will have any legs.

The Dark Knight Rises is the third installment in the film series, the sequel to Batman Begins (2005) and The Dark Knight (2008), all directed and deftly crafted by Nolan. One of Mark Jordan Photography's favorite directors is Nolan, whose last film, Inception, left no doubt the genius of the man.

Though The Dark Knight Rises is expected to be the completion of the series, I cannot imagine that it won't be too long before we once again see the DC Comics character Batman - not if clamoring audiences have to say anything about it. Batman is much too fertile a franchise for Hollywood to allow it to remain fallow for long. Mark my words, there will come a day when see Alfred being played by a then aging Christian Bale...
Speaking of Bale, he returns for another go at his greatly anticipated role along with Michael CaineGary Oldman, and Morgan Freeman, all from Batman Begins and The Dark Knight. There are also a few new faces, not least of which is Tom Hardy and Anne Hathaway. I'll leave the new characters to your imagination, but one plays Selina Kyle and the other Bane (yes, as in "a person who ruins and spoils" sort of bane...).

Though I knew The Dark Knight Rises takes place after the portentous conclusion of The Dark Knight, what I was surprised to learn was that it's a whopping eight years later. As you know, much can happen in that span, especially so when it comes to the gathering of dark forces.

I also discovered that regardless of Nolan's phenomenal successes with his first two Batman films, he was skeptical about taking the helm for a third time. Eventually Nolan agreed to the project but only after his brother, Jonathan, and David Goyer, developed a great story. Nolan's primary concern was to end the series on the proverbial high note. From what I've seen so far, it looks definitively a crystal shattering, high-C.

At to the particulars, the filming of The Dark Knight Rises took quite the sequitious route, with locations all over the map. I am not certain where the film begins but along the way The Dark Knight Rises in Los Angeles, New York, New Jersey, Pittsburg (for an exciting Steelers game you'll never forget), London, Nottingham, Glasgow, and Jodhpur, of all places.

Batman fans will be elated with the cinema photography, as Nolan has once again chosen to employ the IMAX camera for The Dark Knight Rises (not all but a great portion of it). Obviously, Nolan feels that same and you and I, who demand exceptional quality - there's no better camera than the IMAX to make the best use the visuals created by Nolan and his team.

I hope you enjoyed a few images I snipped from trailers. In case you're new to the Mark Jordan Photography blog (Photosical), wondering about the REVIEW, we first post images with "review" in the title so that when we actually do write it, we're already one step ahead in the search engines... The review of The Dark Knight Rises will be coming after the film is released.

And now, here's the trailer:
