I’ll likely remain in the minority here, so let’s just get it out in the open first thing: I thought The Dark Knight Rises was a better overall film than its predecessor The Dark Knight. That’s not a diss to the second film; I thought it was good, just not the return of the cinematic messiah. That said, Rises is not perfect either, but I was able to dig it more and appreciated the thematic callback to Batman Begins. This third chapter is a bit jumbled at times but for all intents and purposes definitely closes out Nolan’s trilogy.
The Dark Knight Rises contains the most IMAX footage ever for a Hollywood feature, more than one hour’s worth! Experience the epic conclusion of the Dark Knight trilogy as director Christopher Nolan intended – on the biggest IMAX screens DC!
Washington, DC fans who have been eagerly awaiting the July 20 release of “The Dark Knight Rises” will have an opportunity to get a firsthand look at the Tumbler and the Bat-Pod on Sunday, May 27 from 11am-1pm at Fresh FM’s Living Flag project being held at the parking lot at Waterfront Street and St. George Blvd at the National Harbor (look for the giant white tents across the street from the Gaylord National Resort).
Fans who have been eagerly awaiting the July 20 release of Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ “The Dark Knight Rises” will have an opportunity to get a firsthand look at the Tumbler and the Bat-Pod, which are rolling out on a coast-to-coast tour, sponsored by Mountain Dew and IMAX. Both the Tumbler and the Bat-Pod have served as high-powered modes of transportation for Batman in Christopher Nolan’s earlier blockbusters—with the Tumbler first appearing in “Batman Begins,” and the Bat-Pod being introduced in “The Dark Knight.” They will both be featured in different ways in the hugely anticipated finale to the director’s Batman trilogy, “The Dark Knight Rises.”
