INCEPTION

EMMA THOMAS (Producer) most recently produced the acclaimed blockbuster "The Dark Knight,” which shattered box-office records on its way to earning more than $1 billion worldwide. Thomas also earned a Producers Guild of America Award nomination for her work on the film. In addition, "The Dark Knight” received numerous honors, including eight Academy Award® nominations, winning for Best Supporting Actor (Heath Ledger) and Best Sound Editing (Richard King), and nine BAFTA Awards, where Ledger also won.

Thomas studied at the prestigious University College London before beginning her career at Working Title Films in London, where she worked in physical production for five years. While at Working Title, she gained a solid foundation in film production, which would serve her well as she segued into producing.

The independent feature "Following” was the turning point for her career, marking her first film as a producer. Shot on weekends over the course of a year, "Following” was guerrilla filmmaking at its best. The film, which was done on a shoestring budget, went on to gain recognition at film festivals around the world and received international distribution.

Thomas next served as an associate producer on the internationally acclaimed independent film "Memento,” which won a number of awards, including an Independent Spirit Award, a British Independent Film Award, and several critics groups' awards for Best Film. Continuing her success, Thomas co-produced her first major studio release, the hit thriller "Insomnia,” starring Oscar® winners Al Pacino, Robin Williams and Hilary Swank.

In 2005, Thomas produced "Batman Begins,” under the direction of Christopher Nolan. Following that, Thomas produced "The Prestige,” a drama about an intense rivalry between two magicians who become obsessed with outdoing one another, leading to self-destruction and murder. The Christopher Nolan-directed film earned two Oscar® nominations, for Best Art Direction and Best Cinematography.

Thomas will next produce the upcoming "Superman” film, which Nolan is currently developing. Thomas and Nolan are also developing a third installment in the "Batman” franchise, which Thomas will produce.

Thomas lives in Los Angeles with husband Christopher Nolan and their children, and is presently developing additional projects under the banner of their company, Syncopy.
