The New York Times has a new story up focusing on Christopher Nolan and his approach to making the new Batman film, The Dark Knight.
*Nolan did not use a second-unit on the shoot, which means that every frame that’s shown on the screen was shot by him.
*One of the themes explored will be whether or not the mere presence of Batman in Gotham City is what attracts the bizarre and twisted criminals like the Joker to the city.
*Gotham City itself won’t be portrayed as a dark and brooding city, but as a gleaming modern metropolis.
