Batman Begins

Some people wanted the Batmobile to be computer generated, but director Christopher Nolan refused, so it was built from scratch. It can do 0-60 in 6 seconds.

Director of Photogrophay Wally Pfister used several interesting filming techniques on the film, eventually earning him a "Best Cinematography" Oscar nomination. One of these was how he shot the sword duel between Bruce and Ducard - holding a steadicam and being dragged around the action sitting on a sled.

The first thug we see Dr. Crane get off with an insanity defense is named Zsaz. If you look closely you'll see he is covered with scars. In the comics, Zsaz is a homicidal maniac who keep score of the people he kills by marking it on his skin. Every one of those scars is supposed to represent one of his victims. And although you don't see it in the movie, his body is covered.

The Batmobile holds about 10 gallons of gas, but only gets single digits in mileage.

Mistakes

When Batman is chased by the cops while he is trying to save Rachel, he reaches the roof of a parking lot and stops. A cop orders him to switch off the engine of his vehicle and get out. Later when Batman is chased inside a tunnel, we see a cop asking on his radio what the Batmobile looks like. The Batmobile then zooms past him and he says "never mind". The only problem is that it's the same cop both times, so he knew full well what the Batmobile looks like when it stopped in front of him initially. Probably caused by the order of those sequences being switched in editing, but still a mistake.
