To celebrate the 80th anniversary of Batman, The Dark Knight trilogy will be shown back-to-back in select IMAX cinemas.
Nolan's dark Batman trilogy is often credited as one of the reasons superhero movies became the unstoppable force they are today. In fact, until 2018's Aquaman, 2008's The Dark Knight and 2012's The Dark Knight Rises were DC's two top-grossing films, bringing in $1.004 billion and $1.084 billion respectively. The Dark Knight was also nominated for 10 Oscars, and won two.
The trilogy screening will be shown in 70mm IMAX format, which is favored by director Christopher Nolan. While the first installment, Batman Begins, wasn't filmed in 70mm, it was converted in 2012 for the premiere of The Dark Knight Rises. The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises were both partially filmed in 70mm.
The marathon screening in LA will also include a special Q&A session with Nolan, which will take place between the second and third movies. The session will be filmed and then shown at the remaining screenings. Tickets go on sale today, March 13, at 9am PT, and each ticket purchase will include a lanyard and special Dark Knight trilogy collectible.
