Christoper Nolan: Lion King and Dark Knight Rises trailer mash-up is pretty epic

Published 30/07/2012

The Dark Knight Rises trailer parody, 'The Lion King Rises', has won praise from Batman director Christoper Nolan.

The YouTube video sensation synchs the dialogue from a Rises trailer with footage from The Lion King.

Nolan told Entertainment Weekly that he tries to shut out the 'cultural noise' about the movie: the snarky tweets and message boards filled with wild theories.

Asked if he had seen the viral video Nolan said: "That one got thrust in front of me. I thought it was pretty epic.''
