“Dark Knight Rises”: New Details

Some fresh Chris Nolan commentary about next Batman movie “The Dark Knight Rises” has appeared in a currently-print-only issue of Empire. Nolan’s big reveal is that the DKR story picks up eight years after “The Dark Knight” — i.e., Christian Bale’s Bruce Wayne in his early 40s. The unnamed Empire interviewer also speaks to Tom Hardy (pictured), who describes his evil character, Bane, as “brutal…a big dude who’s incredibly clinical, in the fact that he has a result-based and result-oriented fighting style.” Hardy continues: “It’s not about fighting — it’s about carnage.” Nolan explains that the DKR prologue that will be shown next month with “Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol” in IMAX “is basically the first six, seven minutes of the film. It’s an introduction to Bane.”
