Creators of the final act of Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy The Dark Knight Rises, have released an iOS app that lets you delve into the world of The Dark Knight Rises in a way you’ve never experienced before. Titled the The Dark Knight Rises Z+, the iPhone app picks up sounds from real environments blending them with the epic soundtrack of Hans Zimmer from the film. Once you put your headphones on, you actually feel you’re in the dark alleys of Gotham City.
Hans Zimmer himself said about the app:
“This new app allows users to be part of the film in a way that goes beyond the movie screen — it’s the difference between looking at a photo of a river, and being able to drop your hand over the side of the boat and feel the currents of the water tug as the river takes you on a journey”
Below is the full iTunes description:
