For the unversed, Nolan holds both UK and US citizenship. Science fiction films like Star Wars and 2001: A Space Odyssey, along with the works of Ridley Scott, inspired Nolan.

Christopher Nolan’s first feature was Following, which came out in 1998. He wrote, directed, photographed, and edited the film. His breakthrough film was Memento [2000]. It was his brother Jonathan, also a filmmaker, who gave him the idea of the movie about a man with anterograde amnesia who uses notes and tattoos to hunt his wife’s murderer. Memento was nominated for the Oscars in the Best Original Screenplay category. In 2005, he tried his hands in the comic book superhero genre by doing Batman Begins, followed by The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises. These films were commercially successful at the box office.

What are his salary and earnings from films?

According to Celebrity Net Worth, Nolan is paid $20 million as a base salary plus a generous portion of the film’s backend. For Dunkirk, he received his base salary, as mentioned previously, and 20% of the gross earnings; that is, when the movie made $530 million worldwide, the director received around $100 million in bonuses.
