Due out: July 19

They say: Eight years af­ter tak­ing the rap for Two Face’s crimes, Bat­man suits- up once more to pro­tect Gotham City from ter­ri­fy­ing vil­lain Bane.

We say: No one has in­jected more style and sub­stance to the su­per­hero game than writer- di­rec­tor Christopher Nolan. You’re in the best hands here.

Close up: To his credit, Nolan held firm un­der stu­dio pres­sure to film his third Bat­man saga in 3D. How­ever, big- screen en­thu­si­asts will be thrilled to learn just over an hour of footage has been shot in the IMAX for­mat.

Wide shot: Nolan’s pro­duc­tion de­sign team were ini­tially briefed that they were work­ing on a ‘‘ war movie’’ that will play up Bat­man’s fight­ing ca­pa­bil­i­ties.
