Opens Friday October 23.
Christopher Nolan’s entire Dark Knight trilogy (Batman Begins, The Dark Knight & The Dark Knight Rises) is returning to the big screen at the IMAX Victoria.
The follow-up to the action hit Batman Begins, The Dark Knight reunites director Christopher Nolan and star Christian Bale, who reprises the role of Batman/Bruce Wayne in his continuing war on crime. With the help of Lieutenant Jim Gordon and District Attorney Harvey Dent, Batman sets out to destroy organized crime in Gotham for good. The triumvirate proves to be effective, but they soon find themselves prey to a rising criminal mastermind known as the Joker, who thrusts Gotham into anarchy and forces the Dark Knight ever closer to crossing the fine line between hero and vigilante. Academy Award nominee Heath Ledger (Brokeback Mountain) stars as arch-villain The Joker, and Aaron Eckhart plays District Attorney Harvey Dent. Maggie Gyllenhaal joins the cast in the role of Rachel Dawes. Returning from Batman Begins are Gary Oldman as Lieutenant Jim Gordon; Oscar winner Michael Caine (The Cider House Rules) as Alfred; and Oscar winner Morgan Freeman (Million Dollar Baby) as Lucius Fox. Warner Bros. Pictures presents, in association with Legendary Pictures, a Syncopy Production, a Christopher Nolan film, The Dark Knight. Nolan is directing the film from a screenplay written by Jonathan Nolan and Christopher Nolan, story by David S. Goyer & Christopher Nolan. Charles Roven, Emma Thomas and Christopher Nolan are producing the film, with Kevin De La Noy, Benjamin Melniker and Michael Uslan serving as executive producers. The Dark Knight is based upon characters appearing in comic books published by DC Comics. Batman was created by Bob Kane. The behind-the-scenes creative team includes two-time Oscar-nominated director of photography Wally Pfister (The Prestige, Batman Begins), Oscar-nominated production designer Nathan Crowley (The Prestige), Oscar-nominated editor Lee Smith (Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World) and Oscar-winning costume designer Lindy Hemming (Topsy-Turvy).
