Christopher Nolan net worth: Christopher Nolan is a British-American film director, screenwriter, and producer who has a net worth of $150 million dollars. Christopher Nolan has made a name for himself, writing and directing dark, mind-bending thrillers and dramas, including "Memento", "Inception", and the reworking of the "Batman" franchise starring Christian Bale. Born Christopher Jonathan James Nolan on July 30, 1970, in London, he was raised on both sides of the Atlantic by his English father and an American mother. At the age of 8 Nolan loved to experiment with his dad's Super 8 camera, but his film-making passion grew and as a student at University College London he was already shooting short movies. It was in 2000, when Nolan rose to international stardom with his art-house crossover Memento, a tricky psychological thriller based on a story penned by his brother, screenwriter Jonathan Nolan. From there, Nolan released one smash hit after another, each bigger and more profitable than the previous one. He is the man behind the 2002 remake of the Norwegian movie Insomnia (starring Al Pacino), and the 2006 adaptation of the British novel The Prestige. As well, Nolan went on to resurrect the Batman franchise in 2005 with Batman Begins, in which Christian Bale was starring in the main role. The following two Batman features, The Dark Knight (2008, the sequel that earned Heath Ledger a posthumous Oscar for Best Supporting Actor) and The Dark Knight (2012) has each had an apparent effect on audiences making everyone talk about what's next. A proven specialist in dark, psychological dramas, Nolan often felt free to alter the narrative sequence of the story and disrupt the chronology and linear plot points, as in Inception (2010, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Ellen Page). One of the favorite filmmakers among movie-goers, his fans will have the chance to enjoy in one more Nolan's production, i.e, the new Superman movie, Man of Steel, slated for June 2013.
