To celebrate the 80th Anniversary of Batman, Christopher Nolan’s ‘Dark Knight’ trilogy will be heading to London’s BFI IMAX in the 70mm format.
All three movies will be seen in the director’s preferred format, IMAX® 70mm, providing an all-encompassing moviegoing experience. In fact, it was Nolan who, with ‘The Dark Knight,’ was the first filmmaker to shoot the action sequences of a major feature film with IMAX® cameras, revolutionizing the integration of IMAX and standard formats. He again utilized IMAX cameras even more extensively in “The Dark Knight Rises.”

‘Batman was created by artist Bob Kane and writer Bill Finger, and first appeared in Detective Comics #27 in 1939. Originally named the “Bat-Man, the character soon became popular warranting his own line of comics. ‘The Dark Knight’ trilogy began in 2005 with ‘Batman Begins’ with Nolan at the helm and Christian Bale taking over the role of the caped crusader.
Nolan returned to direct the two further instalments through the release of ‘The Dark Knight’ in 2008 and ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ in 2012, with Bale reprising his role in both films. Both sequels earned over $1 billion worldwide, making Batman the second film franchise to have two of its films earn more than $1 billion worldwide. The critical acclaim and commercial success of Nolan’s films have been credited with restoring widespread popularity to the superhero, with the second instalment considered one of the best superhero movies of all-time.
