One of the most celebrated and a successful film of 2008, The Dark Knight has been hailed by both critics and audiences since its original release last July. The film garnered widespread acclaim for its artistic and technical achievements, including the work of its outstanding cast and its director, Oscar-nominated filmmaker Christopher Nolan (Memento).

Nolan's revolutionary use of IMAX cameras to film some of the most challenging action sequences ever created–a first for a major feature film.

The Dark Knight broke virtually every possible box office record to become the top-grossing film of 2008 and the second-highest grossing movie of all time after Titanic.

The eight Oscar-nominated film including Best Actor Supporting Role — Heath Ledger for The Dark Knight is distributed worldwide in theatres and IMAX by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
