The Dark Knight Rises is the epic concluding film in Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy. Christian Bale reprises the role of Batman/Bruce Wayne one last time and the movie introduces the character of the Cat Burglar or Catwoman, Selina Kyle, enacted by Anne Hathaway, while Tom Hardy takes on the role of menacing Bane. The emotionally inspiring conclusion of the trilogy opened up to rave reviews and has since then grossed over $1 billion dollars and is currently ranked third amongst highest-grossing superhero films of all time.
Eight years after Harvey Dent’s death, Batman has disappeared from Gotham City and Wayne Enterprises is on the brink of bankruptcy. Police Commissioner James Gordon is filled with guilt for blaming Batman for Dent’s death, as he hunts down and tries to bring to justice a new breed of criminals that have begun cropping up in the city. Selina Kyle is intent on finding a way to get her past criminal records erased. Bane, a masked menace, takes hostage of Gotham Stock Exchange and, using Bruce’s fingerprints, stolen by Selina, makes transactions that bankrupts Wayne Enterprises.
While Bruce finds comfort in Marion Cotillard, a member of the Wayne Enterprises, he confronts Selina, who agrees to take him to Bane. Ultimately Bruce lands up in a trap, where Bruce learns that Bane is hell bent on fulfilling Ra’s al Ghul’s mission to destroy Gotham. While Bruce lies captured in this prison, he learns the extraordinary story of a child born in the prison, who managed to escape. In the meantime, Bane successfully traps the Gotham Police Force underground and takes control of the city. Batman has to fight his own demons and trust his instincts as he pairs up with Selina and an honest detective, Blake and makes a plan to stop Bane from razing Gotham to the ground.
