Christopher Nolan's breathtaking Batman trilogy concludes in jaw-droppingly epic style!
Eight years have passed since the tumultuous events of 'The Dark Knight'. Having taken the rap for inspirational DA Harvey Dent's crimes, Batman (Christian Bale) is in exile. His alter-ego, Bruce Wayne, has yet to recover. At least Gotham City is finally at peace. But not for long. As the mysterious Selina Kyle (Anne Hathaway) tells Wayne, there's a storm brewing. And that storm brings the full destructive force of the masked, terrifyingly evil Bane (Tom Hardy). When Bane declares all-out war on Gotham, Batman has no choice but to return to the fray for the ultimate showdown. Visionary director Christopher Nolan delivers the finale we've all been waiting for as the Dark Knight legend goes into climactic overdrive. Anne Hathaway's Selina Kyle/Catwoman brings leather-clad sex appeal. And brilliant Brit Tom Hardy, who was so extraordinary in 'Bronson', stakes his claim as the ultimate villain.
