The Third Batman Film Gets a Title “The Dark Knight Rises” And A Promise of No 3D!
The LA Times just published and interview with Director and Genius Christopher Nolan in which he let’s loose with the title of his third Batman film “The Dark Knight Rises”.
He mentions his desire to carry on the look and feel of Dark Knight and for that reason he wants to shoot the film in the IMAX format and not make a 3D film. Yes, he has bucked the trend of every damn studio out there and will release a major blockbuster without the unnecessary 3D.
Don’t get me wrong, I loved the 3D work James Cameron did with AVATAR because it added to the film, it wasn’t the reason the film was made and it wasn’t an afterthought as a way to jack up ticket prices or con people into the theaters.
Everyone knows this will be a major release and hopefully this will allow some directors to say ‘No” to the notion of 3D for films that don’t need it and won’t be served by it.
