Even though Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy ended over a decade ago, most comic book fans still consider the films to be some of the best of the genre. The realistic take on Batman was truly ahead of its time and now for Batman Day this September, fans can revisit all three classics thanks to Showcase Cinemas. At your local Showcase for one day only on September 16, you can see Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, and The Dark Knight Rises on the big screen again.
Whether it’s Heath Ledger’s Joker, the dark consequences of Batman’s actions, or the crime thriller backdrop, The Dark Knight is a tragedy that remains timeless. Then, when you get to The Dark Knight Rises and the political “No Man’s Land” type of story, Nolan crafted one of the most ambitious finales in cinema history. The one thing all three of these masterpieces have in common, besides Nolan’s brilliant direction, is Christian Bale’s Batman.
The Dark Knight trilogy is a dark and realistic take on the Batman mythos. It features some of the most iconic performances in superhero film history, including Heath Ledgers's Joker and Christian Bale's Batman.
What Is Batman Day?
In pop culture, there are few characters as recognizable as Batman. He has such a rich almost 85-year history with a film catalog that can’t be beat. That’s why it’s so great to see films like The Dark Knight Trilogy get celebrated in this way. Batman Day is an annual celebration of the iconic character that takes place on the third Saturday of September. As we get closer to September 16, fans should expect more announcements for Batman film re-releases. Given that it’s the 30th anniversary of Batman: Mask of the Phantasm, it’s a safe bet that that classic will be a part of the festivities.
