Christopher Jonathan James Nolan (born 30 July 1970), is an English-American film director, screenwriter and producer. He received serious notice after his second feature Memento (2000), which he wrote and directed based on a story idea by his brother, Jonathan Nolan. Jonathan went to co-write later scripts with him, including the Batman Series.
Christopher Nolan has some claim to be considered in the same league as Stanley Kubrick, a cinema legend of unarguable status.
Nolan pointed out that The Dark Knight Rises was made on celluloid. That he is committed to shooting on film, and wants to continue doing so. But, he warned, 35mm will be stamped out by the studios unless people — people like them — insist otherwise.
Nolan throws a perfect storm of stunts, effects, locations and actors at one big idea: that it’s possible to pilfer ideas from dreams by a process called ‘extraction’, which involves hooking yourself up to a drip, falling asleep and entering the world of the subconscious.
Born in 1970 and making 8 mm films from the age of seven, Nolan studied English Literature at University College London, graduating to 16 mm through borrowing equipment from the college's film department to make short films in his spare time.
The 41-year-old filmmaker fills the screen with grim architecture, hard-luck faces and gun-metal hues; tricks of the mind are his narrative specialty, not affairs of the heart.
Nolan doesn’t spend much time surfing the Internet (this is the guy who doesn’t have a cellphone or email account), but at a small reception after the Universal City press screening he said he welcomes the Bat-mania for what it represents.
Enter Christopher Nolan, reborn as the Caped (in 35mm film) Crusader, fighting the forces of digitization and protecting good old-fashioned filmography everywhere.
Academy Award(R)-winning star Christian Bale and uber-talented director Christopher Nolan will be on hand to accept the "Most Manticipated" award for their upcoming blockbuster, "The Dark Knight Rises."
Chris Nolan has now admitted that it was only his brother and co-screenwriter Jonathan Nolan who twisted his arm to include her[Catwoman] in the film.
After audiences expressed bafflement over what Batman villain Bane was saying, reports say Christopher Nolan has taken steps
"No. I don't want to hold anything back. I always envisioned the Batman tale as a trilogy, resulting in Batman Begins, The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises," Nolan said.
