About Batman Begins
Batman Begins explores the origins of the Batman legend and the Dark Knight’s emergence as a force
for good in Gotham. In the wake of his parents’ murder, disillusioned industrial heir Bruce Wayne
(Christian Bale) travels the world seeking the means to fight injustice and turn fear against those
who prey on the fearful. He returns to Gotham and unveils his alter-ego: Batman, a masked crusader
who uses his strength, intellect and an array of high tech deceptions to fight the sinister forces that
threaten the city.
About The Dark Knight
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 (Gary Oldman)
and District Attorney Harvey Dent (Aaron Eckhart), Batman sets out to destroy organized crime in Gotham f
or good. The triumvirate proves to be effective, but they soon find themselves prey to a rising criminal
mastermind known as The Joker (Heath Ledger), who thrusts Gotham into anarchy and forces the
Dark Knight ever closer to crossing the fine line between hero and vigilante.
