Five Film Facts The Dark KNight Rises

Perhaps the most anticipated movie of the summer, Christopher Nolan’s third and supposedly final Batman movie “The Dark Knight Rises” finally lands in theaters this Friday. The action takes place eight years after “The Dark Knight,” with Batman (Christian Bale) in self-imposed exile, shouldering the blame of D.A. Harvey Dent’s death for Gotham City’s greater good. Of course, you can’t keep a good bat down, and soon the Dark Knight rises, Catwoman (Anne Hathaway) purrs, Bane (Tom Hardy) terrorizes, and general epicness ensues. We all know the final installment will be a spectacular conclusion to Nolan’s trilogy, but here are five facts you may not know about the film.
