Movie Endings Explained - The Dark Knight Rises (video)

Movie endings, they're usually pretty straight forward right? Everything pays off, the main characters learn something, and our heroes ride off into the sunset. Sometimes though, we don't get the typical ending from a movie, we get something much more nuanced, complex and open ended. The kind of endings that leave things up in the air for all of us to debate and theorise on until we're blue in the face. With Movie Endings Explained, we aim to delve into some of the more ambiguous and mysterious endings to films that have left audiences scratching their heads for years, and to attempt to explain them. In most cases, a definitive answer isn't really there, so we definitely want to hear from YOU on how you interpret the various endings we'll be discussing with this series.

To kick things off, we dig into the much talked about finale to THE DARK KNIGHT RISES, Christopher Nolan's final installment in his magnum opus: The Dark Knight Trilogy. I won't spoil the ending here (though be warned, the video discusses everything, if you're one of the seven people who haven't seen TDKR) but the events that close the film have sparked speculation amongst viewers over how real they truly are. Is it meant to be taken literally? Or was Nolan playing with our expectations? Maybe both? We talk the various possibilities and cover some the opinions on the people who worked on the film too (including Batman himself, Christian Bale). Check out the exclusive video below to find out what our interpretation is, and chime in with your theories on THE DARK KNIGHT RISES down below!

Would you ever like to see Nolan make a fourth movie in the DARK KNIGHT series? Or do you think it ended perfectly the way it did? What other Movie Endings would you like to see us tackle in this series? Sound off below!
