Dark Knight Rises Batman Screenplay

The Dark Knight Rises (2012)

We recorded this podcast on the opening weekend of The Dark Knight Rises after we’d each seen the film twice in the theaters. We’ve since seen the film many times and updated and expanded our analysis, for our Christopher Nolan e-book.

I should note that, before seeing the film, I wrote a detailed beat sheet, what I called my “Dark Knight Rises Pre-Cog Story Map,” predicting the plot of The Dark Knight Rises. Based on my analysis of the structure of his other films and the many trailers and clips, I riffed on a possible ending to the trilogy, and I have to say that many of my beats are pretty darn close to the finished film. 🙂
