- THE DARK KNIGHT RISES
The spy photos and video coming from the set of The Dark Knight Rises has been seemingly non-stop, leading to our first full look at many aspects of the film, including the costumes worn by Bane and Catwoman. So how does one of the film's screenwriter feel about this occurring?

Replied Nolan, with a laugh, "It was great because we were working [on Person of Interest]. So that was the only way I was able to get down to set was to watch it on YouTube!"
So has he resigned himself to the fact that people will make a lot of judgment on what they're seeing, without any real context until the movie opens? Said Nolan, "Yeah, I think the goal with those movies is just to make something so… You know, Chris loves to shoot on these IMAX cameras, these massive cameras. As soon as you release something in the theaters, like a trailer, people go in and they record it with their iPhone or a camera, and they put it online. But when we first released that IMAX prologue for The Dark Knight, the image was so big that no one could record the whole thing with their camera. So you have one YouTube video of the top half of it and another YouTube video of the bottom half."

Nolan continued to stress that the scale of the movie was key, adding, "I think the goal with those movies and the thing that Chris is doing and just kicking ass with is making a movie so big that you couldn't possibly fit all of it. Even in tiny little pieces, you still wouldn't get a sense of the scale of it. I saw a little bit the other day, and the scale is just vast."
