Director Christopher Nolan was interviewed by IGN after the screening of six minutes of the film, and he talked a bit about Gotham goings on, the Joker’s walk and how much IMAX we can see.

As we shot we intended to shoot four, but we enjoyed it so much and we were loving the results so much as we watching dailies. We were sitting there on the stage in Chicago watching dailies on an eight-story screen. It’s a pretty incredible thing. So were started throwing the cameras a little bit more and more, so it will be a little more in the film than that but primarily they’re the big action beats.
