As of today The Dark Knight has been officially added to The Library Of Congress Films Registry along with Shrek,Grease and other films!
Here’s a link to the story…
The Dark Knight was officially a classic the day it opened.
I don’t really consider The Dark Knight a classic by any measure, but on the other hand I would only count 3 of the 25 picks as classics. Either way - congratulations to DC and the team involved.
I’ll agree with that!
Congrats to the films.
The dark knight is probably the only film to have passed the limitations and misconceptions of it’s genre. Kind of like what watchmen did for comic books. Well deserved
While I do think Batman 1996, Batman 1989, and Batman Returns are more of classics to me, but I think The Dark Knight is one of those films I think goes into the category.
Phenomenal announcement @Reaganfan78 - thank you for sharing with the Community!
@baseballmaniac01.45870, that couldn’t be more true!
… I’ll never forget watching The Dark Knight in the theater on release night after spending the entire day at a theme park. It was magical.
All that were chosen deserve it. As a film nerd myself, I am so happy to see great films get a nod and a batman film become a classic now.
Awesome! The Dark Knight is easily my favorite DC movie and possibly my all time favorite movie. I’m happy to see it getting the recognition it deserves.
While I think it has been a classic film for some time, it is great that it was included in the National Film Registry! It is my all time favorite superhero movie.
Ooh that’s so cool! I’m glad time has not affected the general consensus of it.
Well deserved! A classic that went beyond the genre since day one. One of the greatest films of all time and the greatest DC film ever made.
Ha! Exactly right!
