Video: How Christopher Nolan Kept "The Dark Knight Rises" Story a Secret

Posted: November 27th, 2013 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Video: How Christopher Nolan Kept "The Dark Knight Rises" Story a SecretSubmit Comment
"The Dark Knight Rises" was one of the most anticipated films of 2012, which made it difficult for director Christopher Nolan to keep any secrets during filming. The production would often be surrounded with paparazzi looking to snap a photo of anything that hints at the story.

To get around this, Nolan decided to film the scene outside of Wayne Manor with wrong props and unnecessary actors on set, just to confuse anyone who's attempting to piece the plot together.

SPOILERS AHEAD:

During filming, several photos of tombstones appeared online. Those tombstones were from Bruce Wayne's funeral scene at Wayne Manor. But they didn't say "Bruce Wayne" on them. Nolan made the tombstones say "Miranda Tate" to throw people off. Then during post-production, he digitally changed the name to "Bruce Wayne."

Nolan took it up a notch by also asking Christian Bale to be on set, in costume, to make it look like he was attending the funeral, rather than the funeral being for him. In fact, the director filmed Bale as part of the funeral scene just to confuse everyone. The trick worked, because even Michael Caine couldn't figure out what was going on.

That's clever, I give you that. Now explain to me how the hell Batman escaped the nuke's blast radius when he was clearly in the Bat's c*ckpit couple of seconds before detonation.

@Boogiel: Aliens?


But no, it's possible he had some kind of pneumatic diving tank aboard The Batwing. He could have shot himself to the bottom of Gotham Bay in a few seconds, and the water would have absorbed any and all radiation. A lead-lined pneumatic diving tank would have helped. He could have then scubaed back to Gotham.

Dustin Putman says:

"I just took copious advantage of Bath & Body Works' Vermont Honey Apple Shower Gel and was instantaneously transported to a bucolic, foliage-laden orchard in autumnal New England."


Uh, copious refers to an abundance of something, like a copious amount of Alex's j*zz on your rectal perineum.

How can you have a copious amount of "advantage"? You either took advantage of it, or you did not.

Secondly, bucolic refers to a countryside, but then you say a foliage-laden orchard. Wouldn't a f*cking orchard have plenty of foliage? It IS full of f*cking trees.

And if you say orchard, wouldn't you be in the countryside already since I know of no cities in which orchards flourish.

Plus, bucolic brings to mind scenes of rolling hills and farms, a pastoral setting of dirt roads and windmills, not long rows of trees full of apples and grapes.

All you had to say was "orchard".

"When a movie is advertised with a trite, hacky quote like, "It captures the pure joy and triumph of the human spirit," it makes me want to run in the opposite direction. THE BOOK THIEF may or may not be good, but whoever has been responsible for its advertising campaign needs to be fired."

Riiiiiight, but you on the other hand take fifty words to describe a contradictory scene that could have been literally rendered with one f*cking word.

@boogiel
Personally I think it was lazy editing but I think it was suppose to be an escape pod of some kind. Even if it wasn't, Nolan edited that scene to throw people off whether Batman was alive or not but then when Batman is revealed to be alive it makes no sense since, as you pointed out, they show Batman in the f*cking c*ckpit right before it blows up. So the only thing I can suggest without losing complete faith in Nolan is it was an escape pod.
minkowski writes:
on November 27th, 2013 at 3:01:52 PM

@Sleuth: sh*tty editing, maybe, but more likely merely Nolan's terrible, unintelligent way of trying to create suspense and mystery.

Nolan wanted you to think Batman was dead, as was obviously the case, so you'd sit around going "huh...did Alfred imagine seeing Wayne or not?". Just like the stupid top at the end of Inception.

So I would say the "sh*tty editing" was deliberate and thus greatly amateurish.

The story? There was no story in this movie. Only contradictions and undermining of the first two. Nolan is dead to me after this movie cause it was inexcusable terriable.

I'm 100% sure Michael Caine and the rest of the cast was confused throughout all of the filming, at least if they attempted to understand the plot they were acting out

@Cinema: Dustin is actually gay. Really. Gay. Homosexual. He and Patrick are a thing. Can't you tell from the rainbow colors on his website?

Not that I care whether he sucks the beef (I absolutely do not), but he could at least act like a f*cking man when he's not getting stuffed back and front like a Christmas pig.

Not everyone wants a movie's plot ruined for them before it even has a chance to be filmed. I think paparazzi should have a f*cking restraining order in place when it comes to sets, then the director wouldn't have to pull some asinine trick to throw them off the scent. sh*t-sucking sc*mbags...

did you know
in Planes Trains and Automobiles
No transportation company wanted to appear inept or deficient in any way, so crews had to rent twenty miles (32 km) of railway trackage and refurbish old railway cars, construct a set that looked like an airline terminal, design a rental car company logo and uniforms, and rent 250 cars for the car rental scene.

make ya think of another movie?
and PTA was rated R

Didn't Matrix Reloaded do that for the freeway scene? They built like two miles of a freeway and all cars and everything. Say what you want but that was a pretty awesome scene.
