Director Christopher Nolan’s World War II film titled Dunkirk will arrive in theaters this month, but the filmmaker is currently revisiting his previous films as well. In an interview with BadTaste.it, Nolan confirmed that he is involved in the 4K remastering process of his previous works, including The Dark Knight trilogy.
Nolan expressed his excitement and explained the benefits of 4K technology:
“Well, the wonderful thing about 4K technology is it gets closer to the resolution that we shot the films on. […] And so, as home video formats keep evolving, 4K, particularly 4K with HDR, it allows us to give somebody in the home an experience that’s much, much closer to what it was like to see the original film prints as projected on film.”
