‘The Dark Knight’ Shot With Imax Cameras

Dark Knight

We’ve barely gotten through this summer of sequels and yet it somehow feels appropriate to look ahead to next year.  I, for one, would gladly sit out most of the offerings this season if it meant that I could get to the Batman Begins follow-up sooner.

The Dark Knight is not even slated to be released until July 18, 2008…but we now know how some of it will look.  Director Christopher Nolan has announced that four sequences of the movie will be shot with IMAX cameras.  While viewing movies reformatted for an IMAX screen is not unusual, this is the first major motion film to actually be shot with these cameras (as opposed to 35mm).  I personally detest waiting in long lines for any movie, but the opportunity to see Christian Bale looking larger-than-life may be worth the pain.

New arrivals to the latest saga will include Heath Ledger (as The Joker) and Maggie Gyllenhaal (replacing the I’ve-got-better-things-to-do-Katie-Holmes-Cruise).
