A new trailer for Christopher Nolan’s third Batman film is only days away with the imminent release of The Avengers, but the film’s official running time was revealed today.

Australian Event Cinemas posted a synopsis of the film on their website, which stated that the film is……. 2 hours, 40 minutes long!

Many expected the film to clock in at around 3 hours, so you may be disappointed that this is just over 2 and a half. However, with the tons of trailers for Winter blockbusters that will be showing before The Dark Knight Rises, your midnight screening still shouldn’t be over until about 3am!

Are you happy or disappointed with this length?

The Dark Knight Rises will be released July 20.
