We previously reported that Christopher Nolan’s “Dark Knight” trilogy would return to theaters to celebrate Batman’s 80th birthday. The first of the screenings was held over the weekend at Universal Cinema AMC at City walk in Hollywood, and the director himself showed up to mark the occasion.
The filmmaker sat down for a Q&A between the showings of 2008’s “The Dark Knight” and 2012’s “The Dark Knight Rises.” He talked about casting Christian Bale,“the first actor I met for the role,” and also revealed one of the tricks he used in that epic car chase scene, when the Batmobile smashes into a garbage truck driven by the Joker’s men: “I don’t think anyone’s ever noticed it’s a miniature.”
Sitting down and watching the whole trilogy takes almost eight hours, and the anniversary event was going on 12 hours given the Q&A and the 90-minute breaks between movies. When asked if he’s ever tried to watch all three films in one go, the director said, “christ no.” The most he’s ever marathoned in one day was “Batman Begins” and “The Dark Knight.”
