In the highly anticipated IMAX release of The Dark Knight Rises, Nolan employed the extremely high-resolution cameras even more extensively. The film will include more than an hour of footage shot with IMAX cameras – breaking the record for the most IMAX footage ever used in a feature film. These specific sequences, which will expand to fill the entire screen exclusively in IMAX and will deliver unprecedented crispness and clarity and a truly immersive experience for moviegoers.
It has been eight years since Batman vanished into the night, turning, in that instant, from hero to fugitive. Assuming the blame for the death of D.A. Harvey Dent, the Dark Knight sacrificed everything for what he and Commissioner Gordon both hoped was the greater good. For a time the lie worked, as criminal activity in Gotham City was crushed under the weight of the anti-crime Dent Act. But everything will change with the arrival of a cunning cat burglar with a mysterious agenda. Far more dangerous, however, is the emergence of Bane, a masked terrorist whose ruthless plans for Gotham drive Bruce out of his self-imposed exile. But even if he dons the cape and cowl again, Batman may be no match for Bane.
“The Dark Knight Rises” is set to make a huge hit when it hits theaters on July 20, 2012.
