The Dark Knight Rises Hits Theaters Friday

batman, FacebookBatman fanatics rejoice! The new “Dark Knight” movie hits the big screen this Friday, the 20. Can’t wait until Friday? Both Fairchild and Carmike theaters are doing a midnight showing and tickets are on sale now. To get you pumped for the new flick, we’ve found some fun facts you maybe didn’t know about the Batmobile:

  • The “Tumbler” name comes from it’s military history due to it’s ability to jump and tumble
  • The Batmobile was built entirely from scratch- it’s not based on any existing car underneath
  • There are three different types of customized camouflage for “Tumbler” one with a swiveling turret gun, another with a guided missile launcher and a third with a gun.
  • It runs on regular unleaded gas and weighs two and a half tons.
  • The Batpod — Batman’s motorbike — is equipped with three guns on each side: a blast cannon, a grappling gun and a machine gun.
  • The Batpod weighs 730 pounds and is a self-righting bike, which means it doesn’t need a foot stand.
