‘Dark Knight’ Boss Christopher Nolan Has An Excellent Take On Why DC Is Making So Many Bad Movies
Remember The Dark Knight trilogy starring Christian Bale? You know, back when DC Comics actually made some REALLY good movies? Well, the man behind much of the success of those three films, Christopher Nolan, has a pretty darn good explanation for why DC Comics is struggling to make good movies now.
Batman Begins, the first movie in the trilogy, came out in 2005. It received an 85% overall approval rating from Rotten Tomatoes, received an Academy Award nomination and won three BAFTAs.
Then we had to wait three full years for film number two: The Dark Knight. That film received eight Academy Award nominations, won two of them, and raked in over $1 billion in revenue worldwide.
The final film in the trilogy, The Dark Knight Rises, then came out FOUR years later in 2012. It, surprisingly was not nominated for any Oscars, but that didn’t stop it from becoming the 19th-highest-grossing film (currently) of all time with over $1.08 billion in revenue.
