THE DARK KNIGHT RISES (TDKR) Is NOT 4 Hours Long, Not Even Close

MTV reported the run time of Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises as four hours long as a joke which got out of hand. Four hours is too long, even for Batman.

The Dark Knight Rises

The Dark Knight RisesWell, this is another case of humor not translating well when put into words to be read on computer screens. Yesterday, MTV reported that Christopher Nolan screened The Dark Knight Rises for WB Execs and that the rough cut of the film was 4 hours long. Well, Nolan did screen the film, and it was reportedly well received but it was not 4 hours. In fact, like us, MTV has no idea how long the final Batman film from Nolan will be. The author of MTV's article took to twitter to clear things up.

See guys, even a site with the power and money of MTV can sometimes make a mistake or exercise poor judgement. As ever, we'll have word on the official running time and other Batman news as soon as it breaks.
