With Christopher Nolan Q&A
It’s been roughly fourteen years since Christopher Nolan’s Batman Begins. The film spawned two other sequels, The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises which became the most critically-acclaimed Batman film franchise in history.
The film series will now be making its return to IMAX theatres at the end of the month to celebrate the 80th anniversary of Batman’s first appearance in comic books.
The five-city screening tour will kick-off on March 30 at the Universal Cinema AMC at CityWalk Hollywood. Batman Begins and TDK will screen back-to-back. In between TDK and TDKR, Nolan will participate in a moderated Q&A discussion on the movies.
On April 13, The Dark Knight trilogy will also screen at the AMC Lincoln Square in New York City and AMC Metreon in San Francisco; and then the Cinesphere Ontario Place, Toronto and IMAX Theatre at the Indiana State Museum, Indianapolis, on April 20. These screenings will all feature footage of the Nolan Q&A.
Warner Bros.’ domestic distribution president, Jeff Goldstein said:
“Christopher Nolan broke new ground with the Dark Knight trilogy, and this is a rare chance for today’s audiences to experience these extraordinary films as they were meant to be seen. To have the added privilege of hearing Chris’ insights firsthand makes this a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”
The screenings will be in the IMAX 70mm format. Nolan was the first filmmaker to shoot the action sequences of a major feature film with IMAX cameras in TDK.
Tickets are now on sale. The franchise, starring Christian Bale, hauled a combined $2.5 billion at the worldwide box office.
