Christopher Nolan and the Batman series
Ignacio Zara

Christopher Nolan is a prolific English-American film director, screenwriter and producer. He has filmed interesting psychological movies as ‘Memento’ (2000) or ‘Insomnia’ (2002) and recently, the successful science fiction action film ‘Inception’ (2010). However, it has been his trilogy of Batman what has given him a lot of fame.

It was in 2002 when Nolan pitched an idea for a reboot of the Batman film franchise to Warner Bros. Result: his famous trilogy consisting of Batman Begins (2005), The Dark Night (2008) and the expected film ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ (2012): the first trailer is slated for release next Thursday, July 20, as a movie preview to which stars Christian Bale, Morgan Freeman, Marion Cotillard, Jospeh Gordon-Levitt, Michael Caine, Anne Hathaway, and Tom Hardy.

Batman Begins: the film restarts the Batman film series. It tells the origin story of the character and begins with Bruce Wayne’s initial fear of bats, the death of his parents, and his journey to becoming Batman. The objective was to get people to care for both Batman and Bruce Wayne. The film used specifically miniatures, computer-generated imaginary, a new Batmobile (called the Tumbler, and a better Batsuit that the audience liked very much as well as its darker tone (compared with previous Batman films).Critically and commercially successful, the film grossed $48 million in its opening weekend.

Cast: Christian Bale (Batman) Michael Caine, Liam Neeson, Katie Holmes, Gary Oldman, Cillian Murphy, Morgan Freeman, Ken Watanabe, Tom Wilkinson, and Rutger Hauer.

The Dark Night: Christian Bale played again the role of Bruce Wayne/Batman, with a returning cast of Michael Caine (Alfred Pennyworth), Gary Oldman (James Gordon) and Morgan Freeman (Lucius Fox). This movie presents the character of Harvey Dent, Gotham’s new District Attorney, played by Aaron Eckhart, and the character of Rachel Dawes, Bruce Wayne’s childhood friend, played by Maggie Gyllenhaal. The couple joins Batman and the police in combating the new rising threat of a criminal mastermind: the terrible ‘Joker’, played by Heath Ledger.

The film received highly positive reviews and numerous records during its dramatic run. With over $1 billion in profits worldwide. Motives? Nolan’s fantastic IMAX camera, suggestive locations from Chicago to Hong Kong, the terrible ‘Joker’ inspired in the 1996 series ‘The Long Halloween’… but, above all, Heath Ledger’s death from a toxic combination of prescription drugs, which attracted intense attention from the press. Heath Ledger was posthumously awarded by the Academy as Best Supporting Actor and the film received eight Academy Award nominations and won the award for Best Sound Editing.

The Dark Knight Rises: it’s the big sensation of this week and one of the hits in San Diego Comic-Con 2012. Most, when he is face to face with a reboot of Superman. Precisely, yesterday, at Comic-Con, the film director Zack Snyder gave everybody a surprise by announcing that the first trailer to ‘Man of Steel’ would be released.

Definetely: good times for film lovers.

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days.
