The Dark Knight Rises Runtime Revealed

New Batman movie will be 15 minutes short of three hours...

You might want to opt for the large bucket of popcorn if you're planning on seeing The Dark Knight Rises in the cinema - because the new Batman flick will be two hours and 45 minutes long.

The runtime of the third instalment in Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy was revealed on US cinema chain AMC's website yesterday.

And super-keen American Bat-fans will get the chance to see the previous two movies, Batman Begins and The Dark Knight, as part of a three-movie marathon on the new film's opening night.

Director Nolan was joined by Gary Oldman, Christian Bale and Joseph Gordon-Levitt at the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday evening, where they presented a new clip from The Dark Knight Rises.

The clip was preceded by a montage from the previous films, which set Christian Bale off crying at the sight of the late Heath Ledgerwho played The Joker.

He said: "It's a great moment to remember Heath."

A host of posters for the new film have been revealed in recent weeks. It will be released in the UK on July 20.
