I found this to be an interesting addendum to the vast volume of work already out there that claims to analyse Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy. The extended interview with the Nolan brothers at the beginning is extremely interesting reading, especially when commenting on the links that have been made between The Dark Knight and the post-9/11 War on Terror.

To boot, you get all the screenplays as well - an interesting read if you are a fan of the films and filmmaking in general.

All in all, I would recommend this to anyone who has a high regard for Nolan, his work, and this trilogy of films in particular.

It has been an exciting 24 hours as I had the opportunity to explore the screenplays for the three Dark Knight films based on the comic book character, Batman.

The screenplays read like a novel - they are easy to follow, fun to digest, and present (re-present?) a story that captivated me when I first watched the movies in 2005, 2008, and 2012. I should note that the Kindle presentation did not come across as a script - though when read as a PDF, using Adobe Digital Editions, it becomes obvious that the book is a script. Though I only received my copy of the book yesterday, I could not stop reading till I got to the end.

But it was not the screenplays alone that made the book an interesting read. Along with the screenplays are an extended interview with the story's authors (Christopher Nolan, Jonathan Nolan, and David S. Goyer) and the co-producer of the films (Jordan Goldberg). Understanding the emotions, the motivation, and ideals that formed these movies added a bit of life to them, that I had not seen before.

The other extras, added to the book, were the three storyboards (one per movie) added to the end of each script. A snippet of the action (drawn much like a comic book presentation) added new life to the script. One felt as if they were being drawn into the process of creating each film - if only for a moment.

The scripts, the interview, and the storyboards, make for a valuable book - a book that is as exciting to read as the movies were to watch.

I love reading scripts, and this was easily one of the best sets of them i have found. I already owned the first two but to get the final one was totally worth it. throw on the soundtrack and have a good read

The complete screenplays of "The Dark Knight Trilogy" is great for any bat fat. I've been skimming over the book all day, there is a lot of really cool parts that are in the screenplay that didn't make it to the final cut of the film. Joker has a few sweet lines that I would have loved to see Heath act out. And Batman has a lot of really "batman like" moves. It's also interesting if you're a movie buff and is interested in what happens before the camera is turned on. Cool to watch side by side with the movies to see how the scenes taken out would have looked like.

Format: Paperback
If you are a serious fan of the Batman mythos or a serious student of film, The Dark Knight Trilogy will be a welcome addition to your collection. Part of the Opus Screenplay series, The Dark Knight Trilogy presents all three of the film's complete screenplays along with selected storyboards.

The collection opens with a bit of a panel discussion between the power players of the trilogy: Christopher Nolan, Jonathan Nolan, David S. Goyer, and Jordan Goldberg. It is an entertaining, but not particularly enlightening, conversation. Much of the subject matter of the discussion has been addressed in other widely published interviews with these gentlemen, but it does serve as a good introduction to the screenplays and provides a bit of a refresher on some of the key elements of the films. I found myself slightly amused when the topic of Batman's "non-lethal" approach to dealing with criminals (I suppose I should believe that those missiles that shoot out of the Batmobile are non-lethal concussion damage that just knocks the bad guys out?) But that has always been a bit of an odd point for me, even in the comics themselves. But the point segues into the general thought processes at play as the trilogy developed over time.

Actually reading the screenplays after watching the trilogy is an interesting academic activity. But more interesting to me are the storyboards. I'm a bit of a project junkie. I like following a project from start to finish. In this case, reading this collection and seeing the storyboards after watching the films is almost a reverse-engineering exercise. The storyboard selections are generous and well chosen. For Batman Begins, we get the opening sequence of the film. For The Dark Knight, we get the amazing truck chase sequence with the Joker.

This book was extremely interesting and entertaining to read. The interview in the beginning was great to read, getting a good perspective from the director, Christopher Nolan as well as writer, David S. Goyer. If your a fan of the trilogy, I suggest paying for this book that will grab your attention every time you pick it up.
