The follow-up to Nolan's Batman Begins (2005), 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 Lt. Jim Gordon and District Attorney Harvey Dent, Batman sets out to destroy organized crime in Gotham for good. The triumvirate proves effective. But soon the three find themselves prey to a rising criminal mastermind known as The Joker, who thrusts Gotham into anarchy and forces Batman closer to crossing the fine line between hero and vigilante.
In 2008, Christopher Nolan directed, co-wrote, and produced The Dark Knight which went on to gross more than a billion dollars at the worldwide box office. Nolan was nominated for a Directors Guild of America (DGA) Award, Writers Guild of America (WGA) Award and Producers Guild of America (PGA) Award. The film also received eight Academy Award nominations, won the Best Sound Editing, and Best Supporting Actor for Heath Ledger's performance in the film.
Professor Anna Brusutti will be introducing the film.
