It is a sequel to ‘Batman Begins,’ and it reunites director Christopher Nolan and actor Christian Bale, who reprises the role of Bruce Wayne/ Batman. ‘The Dark Knight,’ to be released on July 18, is based on comic book characters published by DC Comics. Batman was created by Bob Kane.

With the help of Lieutenant Jim Gordon (Gary Oldman) and the committed new District Attorney, Harvey Dent (Aaron Eckhart), Batman sets out to destroy organised crime in Gotham City for good. Initially, the trio prove to be effective, but soon find that they are prey to a rising criminal mastermind called The Joker (Heath Ledger).

Carrying on their roles from ‘Batman Begins’ are Oldman, Michael Caine (as Alfred) and Morgan Freeman (as Lucius Fox). Maggie Gyllenhaal joins the cast as Rachel Dawes.

Six sequences of this Warner Bros Pictures’ film have been shot with IMAX cameras including the opening six minutes.
