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.
