PG-13 | | Action, Thriller
Eight years after the Joker's reign of anarchy, Batman, with the help of the enigmatic Catwoman, is forced from his exile to save Gotham City, now on the edge of total annihilation, from the brutal guerrilla terrorist Bane.
In order to make the Batwing fly, it was variously supported by wires, suspended from cranes and helicopters, and mounted on a purpose-built vehicle with hydraulic controls to simulate movement.
I knew Harvey Dent. I was his friend. And it will be a very long time before someone... inspires us the way he did. I believed in Harvey Dent.
(at around 1h 30 mins) When the bad guys are taking over Gotham, there are a number of bridges blown up. Some are suspension bridges that eventually have a small section of the center of the span blown away. A simple understanding of engineering would prove that stability is absolutely dependent upon the tension of the suspending ropes that stretch over the tops of the supporting towers. Yet, these bridges still seem to dangle out far beyond the towers with nothing to hold them up. With the cables cut, everything beyond the tower should have fallen immediately.
This film features a new DC Comics logo.
On IMAX 70mm prints of Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol (2011), this film's prologue was shown as a special preview. It contained, with only one exception, entirely different takes of Bane's dialogue.
