Nolan Looks To The Past For Batman Begins

Subscribe to Christopher Nolan alerts

Director Christopher Nolan was determined to go back in time for Batman BEGINS by ensuring dazzling special effects don't distract from the all-important characters.

Nolab, 34, adores 1970s style film-making, and was keen to recreate the big screen magic that was present before computer wizardry took over.

He explains, "I wanted to get back to something a bit more old-fashioned than the computer graphics and effects driven films that have arisen over the last 10 years, which were very exciting when they first began, but are now getting a bit stale.

"I wanted to get back to the epic blockbusters I'd seen as a kid in the late 70s - Star Wars, Raiders of the Lost Ark, the kind of things (GEORGE) LUCAS and (STEVEN) SPIELBERG were doing."
