Jonathan Nolan Comments On Batman Begins Teaser
With Batman Begins now on Netflix, the movie has been receiving some new attention.
The latest is regarding the above Batman Begins teaser trailer that WB used to convince audiences of their different approach to the Dark Knight, which was no longer campy, but darker, grittier and more serious in nature.
The trailer is currently topping Reddit, with Jonathan Nolan, brother to Christopher Nolan and writer on The Dark Knight Trilogy, offering an inside look.
A fan commented:
Damn the movie was already awesome but I wouldn't have minded having that little speech in the movie. That being said, it was the perfect teaser. Built interest without giving away too much.
With Jonathan Nolan responding:
thanks dude. I wrote this in a couple hours in my brother's trailer while he was shooting the scene in which Bruce is arrested for stealing Wayne corp supplies on his 'journey.' Remains some of my favorite writing from these films. Was written specifically for the trailer. Wouldn't have worked in the film.
Another fan commented:
Thanks Jonathan. We have genuine respect for the craft you and your brother have brought to cinema over the last decade, and more. All the best for the future; you guys are writing the future of cinema.
With Jonathan responding:
Thank you! Appreciate it. Hopefully my future also includes a nap. edit -- I really need that nap.
Jonathan Nolan is currently involved with HBO's Westworld series and is currently directing, producing and writing episodes.
