The Dark Knight Rises

Story by Jack Foley

ALTHOUGH he’s been sworn to secrecy, Gary Oldman has promised that final Batman film The Dark Knight Rises will be emotional.

Speaking ahead of the BAFTAs – where he is nominated for best actor for Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy – at the Landmark Sunshine Cinema in New York, the actor, who plays Commissioner Jim Gordon in the Christopher Nolan series, hinted that the film contained at least one powerful scene involving Michael Caine’s butler Alfred Pennyworth.

“There’s an emotional scene coming up in the next Batman, which I am obviously, absolutely sworn to secrecy about. They would kill me… Well, I’d do the press junket and then they’d kill me!

“[But] watching Michael Caine work, as Alfred, was a great lesson for me. Just focus, concentration. He had this emotional scene. I’m kidding you not. It was tears and the whole thing.”

The Dark Knight Rises opens in UK cinemas on July 20, 2012.
