I've made a huge mistake.


I think Dark Knight Rises had a bigger budget, at $250m. It's also reported that Nolan has a 20% cut of the first dollar gross, so that's another chunk of change it needs to make.

None of his movies have come close to not making a high return and Hollywood loves to stick to what they know. I'm sure I read that part of the reason that his relationship with WB is good is because without fail he has delivered movies when he says he will and to the budget he said he would. So although $200m is a lot, they don't have to worry about it becoming $300m.

It's about time I rewatched Memento. I knew nothing about Nolan or the movies when my film-buff housemate came home with the newly released DVD. That point towards the end when you realise what is going on is one of those rare movie moments that has stuck with me. But since upgrading to a special edition dvd a decade ago I haven't actually watched it.

A reported $1B for all the Avatar sequels. Given how bored I was watching the first one, I don't think I'll be making a contribution to getting that back.

One thing that I'm never quite sure about. What exactly was Bruce doing with the concrete and the minigun in the "batcave"? Testing how the bullets shattered in different concrete?
It's seeing how the bullets shatters when hitting concrete so he can jigsaw the fragments he found back together correctly and get a valid fingerprint off it. It doesn't really hold up to logic; a bullet shattering is going to be a chaotic event with too many variables for useful repeatability.

VOD only if you watch it via a VR headset with a multiplayer game of SimCinema. Other player's mics can't be muted.
