THE DARK KNIGHT Opening Cut to Hitchcock's VERTIGO Score
Here's a great video that takes the opening bank heist sequence from The Dark Knight and adds in the haunting musical score from Alfred Hitchock's classic film Vertigo. It's eerily amazing to see how well these two things match up. It's like Nolan actually cut the film to this soundtrack. The video was created by YouTube user Plan9Pics, and here's what he had to say about it,
I was experimenting with editing movie trailers when I discovered that the opening music from Alfred Hitchcock's "Vertigo" happens to work perfectly with the opening "Bank Robbery Sequence" from Christopher Nolan's 2008 blockbuster "The Dark Knight". Watch closely, and you will notice that Bernard Herrmann's music queues line up almost flawlessly with Nolan's footage. Coincidence? We may never know...
Enjoy the video!
