Production wraps on The Dark Knight Rises

Batman is in the can, as the six month shoot for Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises draws to a close...

Following a shoot that’s taken the film around the world, including stop-offs in India, the UK and the US, production is now, it seems, officially complete on Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises. Well, apart from any planned reshooting that’s been built into the schedule. But the main photography on the film is now done.

The Dark Knight Rises has been shooting for just over six months, and now Christopher Nolan and his team have eight months, give or take, to put together a final cut of the movie. The film is scheduled for release on 20th July 2012.

It also brings to an end, incidentally, one of the most public and scrutinised shoots that we’ve ever seen for a big blockbuster film, with the many days of location shooting on the movie followed by an abundance of unofficial pictures and videos. It’ll be interesting to see just how much of the game these have given away.

A six minute prologue of The Dark Knight Rises arrives in cinemas next month, ahead of IMAX screenings of Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol. And don’t rule out a new trailer for the film in December, either…
