Personal Quote:

[on Michael Caine's vocal cameo in Dunkirk (2017)] I wanted very much to squeeze him in here. It's a bit of a nod to his character in Battle of Britain (1969). And also, it's Michael. He has to be in all my films, after all. See more »

Trivia:

Unadjusted for inflation, Christopher Nolan is only the second director after James Cameron to make two films that have grossed more than $1 billion at the worldwide box office (The Dark Knight (2008) and The Dark Knight Rises (2012)). However, Nolan is the first director to have released both of the films in 2D only. See more »

Trademark:

Frequently uses hard cuts when transitioning to the next scenes. This is most prominent in his films from Batman Begins (2005) onward, especially in The Dark Knight (2008), where, in some instances, the hard cuts he uses will go so far as to nearly cut off character's lines in order to quickly and efficiently get to the next scene.
