Jonathan Nolan Comments On Leaked <i>The Dark Knight Rises</i> Set Photos!

The screenwriter comments on what it was like to see all of the leaked photos and footage being uploaded online, teasing the huge scale of TDKR and revealing that what we've seen doesn't even begin to cover what Chris has in store for us...

Talking to IGN Movies, The Dark Knight Rises screenwriter Jonathan Nolan has revealed what it was like to see all of the leaked set photos and footage from the movie (which is directed by his brother in case you didn't realize - the clue is in the surname!) on the web, while also sharing his thoughts on the people uploading them, and the scale of the highly anticipated DC Comics adaptation.

"It was great because we were working [on Person of Interest]. So that was the only way I was able to get down to set was to watch it on YouTube!"

"Yeah, I think the goal with those movies is just to make something so...You know, Chris loves to shoot on these IMAX cameras, these massive cameras. As soon as you release something in the theaters, like a trailer, people go in and they record it with their iPhone or a camera, and they put it online. But when we first released that IMAX prologue for The Dark Knight, the image was so big that no one could record the whole thing with their camera. So you have one YouTube video of the top half of it and another YouTube video of the bottom half."

"I think the goal with those movies and the thing that Chris is doing and just kicking ass with is making a movie so big that you couldn't possibly fit all of it. Even in tiny little pieces, you still wouldn't get a sense of the scale of it. I saw a little bit the other day, and the scale is just vast."
