20 Behind-the-Scenes Secrets from The Dark Knight

It was Inspired by Heat

The Dark Knight Heat

Warner Bros.

The 1995 crime film Heat is widely regarded as one of the best in the genre, in part because of the way it turns its setting into a key character in the story. Christopher Nolan wanted to do something similar in The Dark Knight in order to give the city plenty of weight and texture.

Chris also aped some of Heat‘s structural choices. In many ways, The Dark Knight is as much a crime film as it is a comic book movie. It’s thrilling no matter how you see it, and that’s in part thanks to the movie’s influences outside of comics.
