Warner Bros. releases 80 pages of "Dark Knight Rises" production notes

Christopher Nolan’s new Batman movie “Dark Knight Rising”

Warner Bros. caused an Internet feeding frenzy Thursday night by releasing 80 pages of “Dark Knight Rises” production notes for free download, the Huffington Post reported. Production notes - including a synopsis, interviews and details about the production of the film - are usually only made available to the press at pre-screenings. 

According to the Huffington Post, here are the most important things to know out of those 80 whopping pages:

*Half the movie was shot with IMAX cameras, and IMAX even developed new lenses specifically for “Dark Knight Rises” to facilitate shooting in low light. So see it in IMAX.

*The Batcave returns.

*“The Dark Knight Rises” was shot in New York, because this time, it’s all about Gotham.

*Although Anne Hathaway did most of her own stunts, that’s not her riding the Bat-Pod.

* According to Bane (portrayed by Tom Hardy), “The shadows betray you because they belong to me.”

*Joseph Gordon-Levitt is a young, “idealistic” policeman. As if we’d expect anything else from him.

*Batman has a bit of a paunch to begin with. Well, it’s been eight years.

*The “Dark Knight Rises” prologue was filmed with minimal special effects.
