Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy to Receive 4K Remaster (VIDEO)
The current film Batman may be fighting crime in Gotham City looking like Ben Affleck these days, but it wasn’t long ago when that wasn’t the case. The last entry coming out as recently as 2012, Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Trilogy offered one of the most grounded and interesting takes on the caped crusader yet, with many seeing the three films as one of the best trilogies of all time. To this day, the series has sustained massive popularity because of its interesting characters and relative faithfulness to the Batman mythos.
Because of this, it shouldn’t be surprising for fans to learn that Christopher Nolan is now looking to remaster The Dark Knight Trilogy among other films in 4K in the near future. Speaking with movie site Bad Taste Italia, Nolan spoke about what 4K and HDR technology means to him, and why home audiences should be excited about his films coming to such a high resolution. A video of the exchange can be seen below:
It gets closer to the resolution we shoot films in… so as home video formats keep evolving, particularly 4K with HDR, it allows us to give somebody in the home an experience that’s much, much closer to what it was like to see the original film prints as projected on film, and I think that’s a very exciting process.”
The director went on to say his films are shot in 6K resolution with IMAX cameras filming upwards of 18K, calling the step that 4K presents as a “wonderful” development. Although Nolan did admit his heavy involvement in the remastering process, he did not reveal when fans could potentially get their hands on such a collection. With both high-resolution and HDR becoming much more prevalent in recent years, we’re guessing any one of his films released in the format could be a hot-selling item.
