Movie-goers in the Chinese mainland will be able to catch the new Batman and Spider-Man movies at almost the same time later this month.

"The Dark Knight Rises", the conclusion to Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy, will open on the mainland on August 27, announced its local distributor, the China Film Group. "The Amazing Spider-Man", a reboot of the Spider-Man franchise, will open the following day.

"The Dark Knight Rises" will be screened in regular 2-D and IMAX 2-D, while "The Amazing Spider-Man" will appear in 3-D and IMAX 3-D.

The two films are the major imported blockbusters to hit mainland cinemas this summer where local films have been dominating since late June.

"The Dark Knight Rises" has done well in North America, topping the box office chart there for the third consecutive week. "The Amazing Spider-Man" ranked eighth at the box office during the past weekend.
