The Art and Making of The Dark Knight

(From Geeks of Doom) In 2005, director Christopher Nolan reinvigorated Warner Bros.’ blundering Batman film franchise with Batman Begins, starring Christian Bale as Gotham’s caped crusader.

A dark, realistic reboot of DC’s brooding avenger, Batman Begins explored the comic book hero’s origins and his evolution from billionaire playboy Bruce Wayne to watchful protector, combating crime and corruption in Gotham City.

A 2008 sequel, The Dark Knight, took the intriguing, character-driven premise and raised the stakes, pitting Batman in an all-out war against the Joker (Heath Ledger), a sinister agent of chaos who killed Bruce Wayne’s greatest love and transformed District Attorney Harvey Dent (Aaron Eckhart) into the vengeful Two-Face.

2012′s The Dark Knight Rises provided a definitive conclusion to the Dark Knight legend as masked terrorist Bane (Tom Hardy) held Gotham City hostage under the fear of nuclear annihilation, forcing the Dark Knight to resurface and save a city that branded him an enemy.

Designed by world-renowned graphic designer Chip Kidd, The Art and Making of The Dark Knight Trilogy tells the complete behind-the-scenes story of these influential films.

Based on in-depth interviews with Nolan and all of the films’ key cast and crew — including co-writers David S. Goyer and Jonathan Nolan, cinematographer Wally Pfister, and more — this hardcover coffee table book reveals the creative process behind the epic Dark Knight Trilogy, accented by beautiful artwork and never-before-seen set photography.

You can currently pick up The Art and Making of The Dark Knight Trilogy on Amazon for the insanely low price of $25.96. (read the full story)
