During a talk on Monday night at the Tribeca Film Festival hosted by Bennett Miller, Christopher Nolan was asked to choose which of his blockbuster sequences was his favorite. His reply? The opening scene from The Dark Knight Rises where Bane hijacks a plane.

“It took us about two days in Scotland,” Nolan explained. “And it was an incredible sort of coming together of months and months of planning by a lot of different members of the team who worked for months rehearsing these parachute jumps and wind walking, all these different things… The visual effects work in the sequence is very minimal… I was really amazed by what the team we had put together had achieved using very sort of old-fashioned methods, in a way. I was very proud of the way that came together.”
