Much of the lead up to "The Dark Knight Rises" saw everyone involved keep their mouths shut regarding any details at all about the movie. Christopher Nolan's desire for secrecy kept pretty much every aspect of the production on lockdown, but now that the movie is in theaters, the curtain can be opened up a lot more.

First up, the folks over at SoundWorks Collection have put together a rather fascinating featurette on the sound design and music of the film. Among the various tidbits you'll learn is how the sound of The Bat was pulled together, using five broad groups of audio with badass names -- Jet, Blade, Growl, Buzz Flange, Bat Moan (our favorite) -- that were mixed together to achieve what you hear in the film. You'll also get to geek out at Hans Zimmer's wall of analog equipment, the kind of gear to make even the most casual of musicians drool. It rules. All told, it's far more informative than EPK's of this kind provide, so it's definitely worth your ten minutes.

And after that, you can check out a small batch of behind the scenes pics from the movie, including some pretty impressive snaps of Bane's cave. No rapping Tom Hardy though. "The Dark Knight Rises" is in theaters now and you should see it already if you haven't. [FirstShowing/ComicBookMovie]
