Having arguably cracked open the market for comic book adaptations to dominate Hollywood’s blockbuster schedules, Christopher Nolan’s seminal 2008 Bat-sequel The Dark Knight is set for a re-release in four IMAX theaters to celebrate the film’s 10-year anniversary, according to Variety.
In an exclusive, Variety reports that Warner Bros. has chosen venues in Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, and Toronto to screen the film. Fans of the Nolan Batman films will have the opportunity to see the film in glorious IMAX for one week starting Friday, August 24. The Dark Knight was the first major feature film to utilize IMAX cameras, with director Nolan and Oscar-winning cinematographer Wally Pfister pioneering the format’s use in mainstream productions.
Since The Dark Knight, blockbusters such as Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol, Star Trek Into Darkness, and Star Wars films The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi have all followed suit. Nolan himself has remained committed to IMAX, shooting Interstellar, The Dark Knight Rises, and Dunkirk using IMAX cameras.
Tickets for the re-release go on sale tomorrow, July 20, at the following venues:
AMC Universal Citywalk IMAX, Los Angeles
AMC Lincoln Square IMAX, New York City
AMC Metreon IMAX, San Francisco
Ontario Place Cinesphere IMAX, Toronto
