Eight years after the Joker's reign of anarchy, the Dark Knight, with the help of the enigmatic Selina, is forced from his imposed exile to save Gotham City, now on the edge of total annihilation, from the brutal guerrilla terrorist Bane.
Despite his tarnished reputation after the events of The Dark Knight, in which he took the rap for Dent's crimes, Batman feels compelled to intervene to assist the city and its police force which is struggling to cope with Bane's plans to destroy the city. Written by
Christopher Nolan wanted Marion Cotillard so much for the role of Miranda Tate, that he modified the filming schedule to accommodate her pregnancy. When Nolan invited Cotillard for the film in 2010, she told him that she was pregnant, and didn't know if she would be able to do it, but Nolan decided to keep her in the film. Cotillard started filming just one month after giving birth, and Nolan also made room on-set for her family. In the last months of filming, Cotillard also shot another film at the same time in France, Rust and Bone (2012). She was flying back and forth between the U.S. and France to shoot both movies. During an interview for Vogue in August 2012, Nolan marveled at Cotillard's ability to do her job so soon after giving birth, calling it "amazing to see" and describing her as "Superwoman".

In the opening plane sequence, the main CIA operative fires a gun right by one of the prisoners' head out the plane door. His gun does not recoil from the shot, but a gun shot is heard. Later, we see him recock the hammer, an action that would have been unnecessary if the gun had actually been fired. See more »
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.

I knew right from the opening shot of Gordon's eulogy "I knew Harvey Dent..." with the breaking to form the Bat symbol, that this was going to be epic. It was obvious from the beginning that the film legend. In fact, I loved it and I think it is the best movies The Dark Knight. I absolutely Loved it, and I'm glad they really humanized Batman and limited his screen time in this film. Some "comic booky-actiony" type fans didn't like the small amount of time we actually see Batman, but that was the whole point of the trilogy! The ending, where Foley says "there's only one police in this town" while doing their march against Bane was really awesome. The ending was perfect. But the movie has missed the Joker. I say as both a Batman fanboy and especially a Nolan fanboy that this is the perfect trilogy.
