Christian Bale, Tom Hardy and Anne Hathaway star in the epic conclusion to director Christopher Nolan's 'Dark Knight Trilogy.' It's been eight years since Batman vanished into the night, turning from hero to fugitive for the greater good of Gotham City. But everything will change with the arrival of a cunning cat burglar with a mysterious agenda, and the dangerous emergence of Bane, a masked terrorist whose ruthless plans for Gotham drive Bruce Wayne out of his self-imposed exile. But even if he dons the cape and cowl again, Batman may be no match for Bane.
