USA, UK | 152 minutes | PG-13 | DCP | Dir. Christopher Nolan Set within a year after the event of "Batman Begins" (2005), Batman, Lieutenant James Gordon, and new District Attorney Harvey Dent successfully begin to round up the criminals that plague Gotham City, until a mysterious sadistic criminal mastermind known only as "The Joker" appears in Gotham, creating a new wave of chaos. Batman's struggle against The Joker becomes deeply personal, forcing him to "confront everything he believes" and improve his technology to stop him. A love triangle develops between Bruce Wayne, Dent, and Rachel Dawes. "There is an exquisite order in the chaos, a fascist formality and video game surrealism that resists the forces of disintegration with a sort of superhuman determination," - Ruth Hessey, Time Out Sydney "Pitched at the divide between art and industry, poetry and entertainment, The Dark Knight goes darker and deeper than any Hollywood movie if its comic-book kind," - Manohla Dargis, New York Times Assistive Screening Accommodations for Patrons with Disability :  Closed Captions and Visually Impaired Narration not available
