AMC announced that they’ll host a Dark Knight Marathon on the evening of July 19 leading up to the July 20 midnight release of The Dark Knight Rises. The announcement doesn’t specify whether the marathon starts with Batman Begins or The Dark Knight, but since AMC devoted an entire day to the six-movie Avengers marathon, you have to figure they’ll go for the whole trilogy, right? Tickets for the marathon will go on sale June 11 at 12pm EST. One thing to keep in mind: AMC lists The Dark Knight Rises at an epic 2 hours, 45 minutes. You may be looking at eight hours of Batman that ends around 3am. That sounds as exhausting as it does heavenly.
