Christopher Nolan spills 'Dark Knight Rises' details

Empire magazine has some new details on the upcoming "The Dark Knight Rises" in its latest issue, which also features two covers: one of Batman, and the other of Bane.

Director Christopher Nolan reveals to the magazine that a lot of time has passed in between the conclusion of 2008's "The Dark Knight" and the starting point for 2012's "Rises."

"It's really all about finishing Batman and Bruce Wayne's story. We left him in a very precarious place," Nolan tells Empire. "Perhaps surprisingly for some people, our story picks up quite a bit later, eight years after 'The Dark Knight.' So he's an older Bruce Wayne; he's not in a great state."
