Today marks the 10 year anniversary of the release of Christopher Nolan's 'The Dark Knight'. I have posted a retrospective review on my @youtube
channel and on #IGTV
, and I hope you'll check it out! But, in more good news, to celebrate the anniversary, @warnerbrosentertainment
will be giving the film a limited re-release this summer!
The release will take place in only four cinemas in only four cities: 'AMC Universal Citywalk IMAX' - Universal City, 'AMC Lincoln Square IMAX' - New York City, 'AMC Metreon IMAX' - San Francisco, and 'Ontario Place Cinesphere IMAX' - Toronto. (@imax
(a Canadian technology no less), is very different from the Hollywood standard of 35mm film. @imax
is generally shot in 65mm or 70mm, and projected in 70mm, giving a richness of colour and much deeper textures than 35mm can offer. Unlike the standard Hollywood aspect ratio which is wider than it is tall, @imax
is taller than it is wide. Over 20 minutes of 'The Dark Knight' was shot in 70mm @imax
, and when you see it in a proper @imax
theatre, the majority of the movie will be presented in the letterbox style (horizontal black bars at the top and bottom of the frame), but when it cuts to an @imax
shot or sequence, it fills the entire screen, and it is spectacular to say the least.
If you love this movie, and have a chance to go to any of these screenings, I implore you: do it. You won't regret it. The screenings are expected to run for one full week, starting August 24, and tickets go on sale Friday. As Lucius Fox said to Coleman Reese, "good luck"!
