The Dark Knight Trilogy is returning to IMAX for Batman’s 80th anniversary

Batman made his first ever appearance all the way back in 1939, which means he has been fighting bad guys, solving crimes and brooding over his parents for a staggering 80 years.

That is something worth celebrating, but what is the best way to do it? We’d like to say binge-watching the entire Batman: The Animated Series (now available in a stunning Blu-ray remaster) in one go, but that’s probably not good for your health.

Luckily, Warner Bros and DC have announced their plans, confirming that they’re bringing Christopher Nolan’s critically-acclaimed and genre-defining The Dark Knight Trilogy to the biggest of big screens: the IMAX.

Over four days (April 19-22), the BFI in London will show Batman Begins, The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises back-to-back-to-back, alongside a pre-recorded Q&A with the director.

The movies will be screened in Nolan’s preferred format of 70mm IMAX, and fans will know that he used the camera for sequences in both TDK and Rises, with the former being the first major feature film to use the IMAX cameras.

Each marathon will begin at 2.30pm and last for a whopping 9-and-a-half hours. Better bring your bat-portable potties.
