About The Dark Knight Rises

In the gripping conclusion to Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy, "The Dark Knight Rises," we find Christian Bale reprising his role as the enigmatic Bruce Wayne, aka Batman. Alongside him, Michael Caine returns as the steadfast and loyal Alfred Pennyworth, Wayne's butler and confidant. The story picks up after the tragic death of Gotham's District Attorney, Harvey Dent, a man who had once been a beacon of hope for the city. In a selfless act, Batman takes the fall for Dent's crimes to preserve his reputation, leading to a citywide manhunt for the Caped Crusader.

Fast forward eight years, and Gotham is a city transformed. The once-revered Batman is now a fugitive, a symbol of fear rather than hope. It is in this changed landscape that Batman crosses paths with Selina Kyle, a woman of many secrets and a penchant for cat burglary. Their encounter is far from coincidental, as they find themselves entangled in a web of danger spun by Bane, a ruthless terrorist leader with a mysterious past. Bane's arrival in Gotham is marked by chaos and destruction, as he and his followers systematically dismantle the city's defenses and infrastructure.

In the face of this new threat, the Dark Knight must rise once more. Despite being branded an enemy by the very city he has sworn to protect, Batman cannot stand idly by as Gotham falls into ruin. With Alfred by his side, offering guidance and support, Batman sets out to confront Bane and his minions. The ensuing battle is one of epic proportions, as Batman fights not only for his city but also for his own redemption. The stakes are higher than ever, and the fate of Gotham hangs in the balance. Will Batman be able to save his city, or will Bane's reign of terror prove to be insurmountable? The answers lie in the thrilling climax of "The Dark Knight Rises."

The Dark Knight Rises is part of the The Dark Knight Collection, together with 3rd Rock from the Sun, Batman Begins and The Dark Knight .
