THE DARK KNIGHT
Sun Theatre Presents the Christopher Nolan Countdown leading up to the release of Tenet.
The second of the trilogy. Nolan’s inspiration for the film was the Joker’s comic book debut in 1940, and the 1996 series The Long Halloween, which retold Two-Face’s origin.
Batman raises the stakes in his war on crime. With the help of Lieutenant Jim Gordon and District Attorney Harvey Dent, Batman sets out to dismantle the remaining criminal organisations that plague the city streets. The partnership proves to be effective, but they soon find themselves prey to a reign of chaos unleashed by a rising criminal mastermind known to the terrified citizens of Gotham as The Joker. This criminal’s intuitive use of the frailty of human emotions deploys explosive scenarios that ravages the hearts of Dent, Batman and Gordon with many casualties. Dent sustaining horrific injuries to one side of his face. Nothing remains but to trust fate as Dent flips a coin to determine the destiny of others in what appears to have become a heartless world. Batman convinces Gordon to hold him publicly responsible for Dent’s murders so that Dent will remain a symbol of hope for the city, a martyr!
