Are you ready to rewatch the Dark Knight Trilogy in 4K? Of course, you are. While promoting Dunkirk, Christopher Nolan confirmed that he’s currently working on remastering his previous movies, including the Batman trilogy starring Christian Bale, in glorious 4K.
Christopher Nolan recently confirmed to BadTaste.it that he is “very much” involved with the remastering of his previous films to 4k. He went on to explain his thoughts on the technology and how much closer the end product will be to what they originally filmed in 6K and 18K.
“The wonderful thing about 4K technology is it gets closer to the resolution that we shot in film,” he tells the outlet. “Photochemically finished films of 35mm have at least 6K resolution, IMAX films, upwards of 18K. So as home video formats keep evolving, 4K — particularly 4K with HDR, it allows us to give somebody at home an experience that’s much much closer to what it was like to see the original film prints as projected on film.”
