If you’re lucky enough to be located in either Los Angeles, New York City, San Francisco, Indianapolis, or Toronto, then you’ll be happy to learn that Christopher Nolan‘s beloved Dark Knight Trilogy is returning to a theater near you in glorious 70mm IMAX in honor of the 80th anniversary of Batman.
This five-city tour will kick off on Saturday, March 30 at the Universal Cinema AMC at CityWalk in Los Angeles with 2005’s Batman Begins and 2008’s The Dark Knight screening back to back, followed by a moderated Q&A with Mr. Nolan himself. After that, they’ll top off the evening with a screening of 2012’s The Dark Knight Rises.
On April 13, the trilogy will be making stops at both AMC Lincoln Square in New York and AMC Metreon in San Francisco, before heading over to Cinesphere Ontario Place in Toronto and the IMAX Theatre at the Indiana State Museum in Indianapolis on April 20. All of the screenings will be accompanied by footage of Nolan’s Q&A in LA, so that should be a pretty interesting watch.
“Christopher Nolan broke new ground with the Dark Knight Trilogy, and this is a rare chance for today’s audiences to experience these extraordinary films as they were meant to be seen,” said Jeff Goldstein, president of domestic distribution at Warner Bros. “To have the added privilege of hearing Chris’s insights firsthand makes this a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”
If you want to check out one, two, or all three of the Dark Knight Trilogy films in 70mm IMAX, and of course help Batman celebrate his 80th birthday, tickets for these special engagements will be going on sale tomorrow beginning at 9:00 a.m. PT/12:00 p.m. ET.

Paramount taps ‘Fargo’ creator Noah Hawley to write, direct next installment in ‘Star Trek’ series
Fresh off the release of his feature directorial debut Lucy in the Sky last month, Noah Hawley has been set to write and direct the upcoming next installment in the Star Trek franchise, according to Deadline.
Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, and the rest of the principal cast are all expected to return for Star Trek 4, which Hawley will also produce for his 26 Keys banner along with JJ Abrams and Bad Robot.
The film is not in any way related to the R-rated spinoff Abrams and Quentin Tarantino have been developing with writer Mark L. Smith and will serve as a direct sequel to 2016’s Star Trek Beyond.
S.J. Clarkson had been attached to direct Star Trek 4 as recently as last year and was poised to become the first woman to helm a film in the sci-fi series but reportedly parted ways with the project after development stalled in mid-2018.
Hawley — perhaps best known for his work on FX series such as Fargo and Legion — recently made his directorial debut with the Natalie Portman-led drama Lucy in the Sky, which tanked at the domestic box office amid harsh reviews from critics.
Production on Star Trek 4 is expected to get underway in 2020.
