Warner Bros. announced late Thursday, June 25, that it is delaying the release of Nolan’s sci-fi thriller “Tenet” from July 31 until Aug. 12, a date the studio says will give it more flexibility to get the film in theaters despite uncertainty caused by a surge in coronavirus cases in certain locales.

LOS ANGELES (AP)  – The Dark Knight is returning to the big screen  actually, four of the biggest ones  in celebration of its 10th anniversary.

Warner Bros. announced Wednesday that the middle film in Christopher Nolans Batman trilogy will be shown on IMAX screens in Los Angeles, New York City, San Francisco and Toronto for one week beginning Aug. 24.

The theaters chosen will play the movie in the 70mm IMAX film format that Nolan used for some of the films action sequences. He has used the format in two of his subsequent movies, Interstellar and last years World War II epic, Dunkirk.

The Dark Knight features Heath Ledgers performance as The Joker, which won him a posthumous Oscar.

Warner Bros. says tickets for the opening-day showings will go on sale Friday.
