Dark Knight Rises Featuring an Hour of IMAX Footage

by at . Comments

Considering how well the scenes shot in IMAX for Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol blew us away, the news arriving today that over an hour of Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises has been shot in IMAX, is music to our ears.

The Dark Knight Rises News

Nolan was chatting with The Wall Street Journal and spoke about his use of the cameras that bring a depth and power to shots unattainable with standard issue shooters. The director was continually advised against using IMAX cameras shooting his final chapter in the Dark Knight series. He thought that preposterous. Like we mentioned earlier, Brad Bird took to the highest building in the world with an IMAX camera and captured the pinnacle shot of his entire Ghost Protocol film.

“There was a huge irony that we were told it would be too difficult to shoot a Hollywood movie on IMAX when we had this gigantic camera department, grips, electric, hundreds of people working for us. These were cameras that had been to the top of Mount Everest, to the bottom of the ocean and into outer space, but people thought we couldn’t make a feature film. It was absurd.”

Imagine over an hour of a two-hour epic with scenes that required the scope that IMAX brings! Even more excited for July 20 and the film to arrive? Us too.
