20 Behind-the-Scenes Secrets from The Dark Knight
There’s Almost No Blood in the Film
For a PG-13 movie, The Dark Knight is pretty violent. People get killed in a wide variety of ways, including one gruesome death by pencil. For all that violence, though, there is almost no blood anywhere in the film. Blood only appears in a few key scenes, including when we see Harvey Dent’s Two-Face for the first time and when the hounds attack Batman.
That lack of blood was likely necessary in order to keep the film at a PG-13. Given the many things we do see, it’s impressive they were able to keep it accessible to the widest audience possible.
