"The Dark Knight Rises" is Nolan's conclusion to his trilogy of films, which began in 2005 with "Batman Begins," starring Christian Bale in the title role. Lauded by critics and audiences alike, Nolan's film re-imagined the classic Batman movie franchise and made the iconic hero relevant to our time. In 2008, Nolan directed, co-wrote, and produced "The Dark Knight," which went on to gross more than a billion dollars at the global box office and received worldwide critical acclaim. Nolan was nominated for a Directors Guild of America (DGA) Award, Writers Guild of America (WGA) Award and Producers Guild of America (PGA) Award. The film also received eight Academy Award® nominations.
In 2010, Nolan captivated audiences with the acclaimed sci-fi thriller "Inception," which he directed and produced from his own original screenplay. The thought-provoking drama was a worldwide blockbuster, earning more than $800 million dollars and becoming one of the most discussed and debated films of the year. Among its many honors, "Inception" received four Academy Awards® and eight nominations, including Best Picture and Best Screenplay. Nolan was recognized by his peers with DGA and PGA Award nominations, as well as a WGA Award win for his work on the film.

Born in London, Nolan began making movies at an early age with his father's Super-8mm camera. While studying English Literature at University College London (UCL), he shot 16mm films at UCL's film society, where he learned the guerrilla film techniques he would later use to make his first feature, "Following." The noir thriller was recognized at a number of international film festivals prior to its theatrical release.
Nolan's second film was the independent feature "Memento," which he directed from his own screenplay, based on a short story by his brother Jonathan. Starring Guy Pearce, the film brought Nolan numerous honors, including Academy Award® and Golden Globe Award nominations for Best Original Screenplay; Independent Spirit Awards for Best Director and Best Screenplay; and a DGA Award nomination. Nolan went on to direct the critically acclaimed psychological thriller, "Insomnia," starring Oscar® winners Al Pacino, Robin Williams and Hilary Swank.
