Dark Knight, The picture


Christopher Nolan has revealed plans to shoot four action sequences of the highly anticipated "The Dark Knight" on IMAX.

"Batman Begins" was great and no one would doubt that. Nevertheless, its sequel "The Dark Knight" will be much greater as director Christopher Nolan has promised moviegoers to shoot its four action sequences on IMAX, including that the introduction of the Joker, the role played by Heath Ledger.

"There's simply nothing like seeing a movie that way. It's more immersive for the audience. I wish I could shoot the entire thing this way," Nolan says, while goes on adding, "You can't do this on any home theater. Batman has some of the most extraordinary characters in pop culture. We wanted the Joker to have the grandest entrance possible."

In case you missed it, IMAX (short for Image Maximum) is a film format created by Canada's IMAX Corporation that has the capacity to display images of far greater size and resolution than conventional film display systems. A standard IMAX screen is 22 m wide and 16 m high (72.6 x 52.8 ft), but can be larger.

The second installment in the revitalized "Batman" franchise, "The Dark Knight" brings back the original cast from the first as well as director Christopher Nolan who this time is helming from the script co-written by his brother Jonathan Nolan. Warner Bros. Pictures has chosen July 18, 2008 as the tentative release date for the movie in the States.
