The Road to Batman and Dark Knight

Dark Knight fans, don’t miss this! New Jersey native Michael Uslan, author of The Boy Who Loved Batman, discusses how he acquired film rights to the caped crusader in 1979 and labored against naysayers for years to bring the character to screen. In part two of this event, we hear from Steve Gorelick, executive director of the New Jersey Motion Picture & Television Commission, on how Newark was used as a backdrop for this summer’s predestined blockbuster The Dark Knight Rises.
