As part of a film school assignment at Turkey's Bahçeşehir University, director Dogan Can Gundogdu
teamed up with animator Gunisigi Cihangir
to create an opening title sequence for The Dark Knight Rises
, the forthcoming Batman film by Christopher Nolan. Featuring extreme closeups of newspaper headlines and creepy liquids and backed with music by Massive Attack
, the end result is something that is perhaps more reminiscent of the moody title sequence to David Fincher's SE7EN
than what we typically see in Nolan's films (and obviously this breaks completely with the title continuity of Nolan's Batman films, each of which begins with a haunting piece of animation and ends with a spartan credits design) but the presentation looks great for student work and it does seem they got the font right.
