There’s certainly no better way to gear up for the highly anticipated final film of a wildly popular franchise than with a massive movie marathon that will likely test the limits of media consumption, so of course AMC Theatres is following up on their Ultimate Marvel Marathon with a Dark Knight Marathon on July 19th. Select theaters will show all three of Christopher Nolan‘s Batman franchise for a special marathon, kicking off with Batman Begins, leading into The Dark Knight, and likely finishing up with The Dark Knight Rises‘s midnight premiere.
This announcement comes on the heels of the news (via ComingSoon) that TDKR will run 165 minutes (yes, that’s 2 hours and 45 minutes), making it the longest of Nolan’s Batman films and meaning that the full trilogy will clock in at 457 minutes (with Batman Begins running 140 minutes and The Dark Knight clocking in at 152 minutes, respectively). That’s over seven hours, guys. Bring snacks and comfy pants.
Tickets for the event will go on sale on June 11th, and you can purchase them over at AMC’s official site for the marathon, right HERE.
