The much-awaited finale of Hollywood’s most famous three-part Batman series is scheduled to hit theaters across the world on July 20 – except in several Middle Eastern countries, media reports say.
According to the National:
An online petition, believed to have originated in Qatar, is calling on the distributors to release the movie on July 20, and has been spreading like wildfire across the UAE via social media sites.
“For fans who have been tremendously dedicated to this franchise from Batman Begins, it is ridiculous that we should have to wait an entire month for what could become one of the UAE’s favourite movies of all time,” it states, adding that The Dark Knight is one of the UAE’s top 10 films of all time.
Of course, anything could happen in a month.
