Syncopy Films Inc. is a British film production company based in London, England. The company was founded by award-winning film director, screenwriter and producer Christopher Nolan and his wife Emma Thomas as co-founder. The name Syncopy Films derives from "syncope", the medical term for fainting or loss of consciousness.[1]

History[edit]

In 2005, Christopher Nolan partnered with Legendary Pictures to produce Batman Begins (2005), The Prestige (2006), The Dark Knight (2008), Inception (2010), and The Dark Knight Rises (2012) for Warner Bros. Pictures. Syncopy's most recent production is Zack Snyder's Man of Steel (2013).
