AMC Announces ‘Dark Knight’ Marathon
As they previously did with The Avengers, AMC movie theaters in the States have announced that they’ll host a ‘Dark Knight Marathon’ on the evening of July 19 leading up to the July 20 midnight release of The Dark Knight Rises.
“The announcement doesn’t specify whether the marathon starts with Batman Begins or The Dark Knight, but since AMC devoted an entire day to the six-movie Avengers marathon, you have to figure they’ll go for the whole trilogy, right?” asked collider.com. “Tickets for the marathon will go on sale June 11 at 12pm EST. One thing to keep in mind: AMC lists The Dark Knight Rises at an epic 2 hours, 45 minutes. That sounds as exhausting as it does heavenly.”
Also out is the film’s official synopsis:
