It’s official, the third installment of writer/director Christopher Nolan’s Batman series’ running time and theater rating have been revealed. “The Dark Knight Rises” will have a lengthy showing at a record 164 minutes and 27 seconds. That will clock in at about 2 hours and 45 minutes, which makes it the longest running time of the three Christian Bale Batmans. So, if you need to take a restroom break, manage your time wisely.
As witnessed on the trailers for the film, “The Dark Knight Rises” will be violent. In the United Kingdom, the film has garnered a 12A, which was the same rating as the other two films. Roughly translated in the United States, that will make it a PG-13 rating. This rating is used as a guideline. It is okay for children over 13 years of age, but parents are strongly urged to make their own decisions as to whether the movie will be appropriate for younger children.
