The Dark Knight Trilogy: The Complete Screenplays with Storyboards by Christopher J. Nolan, Jonathan Nolan, David S. Goyer #BookReview

 
THE DARK KNIGHT TRILOGY: The Compete Screenplays of Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, and The Dark Knight Rises, with storyboards from each film. There is also an introduction featuring a conversation about The Dark Knight trilogy among the three writers: Christopher Nolan, Jonathan Nolan and David S. Goyer

Synopsis:
Christopher Nolan brings The Dark Knight trilogy to its climax.
The trilogy commenced with Batman Begins, which traced the origins of how Bruce Wayne took on the role of the masked crusader to fight the forces of evil.
In the second film, The Dark Knight, Batman found himself battling the anarchy unleashed by the Joker.
Physically and psychologically depleted by the events at the end of The Dark Knight, in The Dark Knight Rises Batman must marshal all his resources to meet the threat to Gotham City posed by the masked villain Bane.
These three films form a trilogy unique in the history of cinema - and express a dark imaginative vision that reflects the uncertainties of the twenty-first century.
This volume contains the complete screenplays of all three films, together with storyboards from each one.




Christopher Jonathan James Nolan (born July 30, 1970) is a British-American film director, screenwriter and producer. He is known for writing and directing such critically acclaimed films as Memento (2000), the remake Insomnia (2002), the film adaptation The Prestige (2006), Inception (2010), and rebooting the Batman film franchise. The latter made him the second most commercially successful British director in recent years, behind David Yates. Nolan is the founder of the production company Syncopy Films.

He often collaborates with his wife, producer Emma Thomas, and his brother, screenwriter Jonathan Nolan, as well as cinematographer Wally Pfister, film editor Lee Smith, composers David Julyan and Hans Zimmer, special effects coordinator Chris Corbould, and actors Christian Bale and Michael Caine.

Nolan often casts the same actors in different films. Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Russ Fega, Cillian Murphy and Larry Holden are among his more frequent acting collaborators.

Nolan's wife Emma Thomas has produced most of his films, with the exception of Memento and Insomnia. Lee Smith has been Nolan's editor since Batman Begins, with Dody Dorn editing Memento and Insomnia. Wally Pfister has served as cinematographer for all of Nolan's films starting with Memento. David Julyan composed music for Following, Memento, Insomnia, and The Prestige, while Hans Zimmer provided music for Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, and Inception.

I really liked this book! I think that whether you like this or not will depend on if you like Batman and if you like reading screenplays. If you do enjoy those two things though, I would suggest picking up a copy!
