Over the last few months we've heard about the spectacular cast coming together for The Dark Knight Rises including returning cast members like Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman and even Nestor Carbonell. In addition, new cast members like Anne Hathaway, Tom Hardy, Marion Cotillard and Joseph Gordon-Levitt have all joined the anticipated sequel, though we're not quite sure how they're characters fit into the story which is being kept under wraps. Well, we may know more soon enough as Warner Bros. has announced the start of principal photography on Christopher Nolan's last Batman film.
But the real news coming from the studio's press release is confirmation that Nolan will again be shooting certain sequences in IMAX. As a matter of fact, apparently Nolan will be shooting even more footage in IMAX than he did for The Dark Knight. The sequences from Nolan's last Batman sequel that had the IMAX touch looked truly spectacular on that giant screen, and I can't wait to see what he does this time around. And we know it will look spectacular again because Nolan is re-teaming with cinematographer Wally Pfister, fresh off his Academy Award win for his work on Inception, to shoot The Dark Knight Rises. Hopefully more details on the sequel will be available soon, so stay tuned. Excited?
