The Dark Knight is the latest release in the superhero series that started with Batman. This movie is based on the Batman TV series and was inspired by the graphic novel of the same name. The movie was directed by Christopher Nolan, who also wrote and produced the movie.
The Dark Knight is also the last installment of the Batman trilogy which included the Two-Face film and the first appearance of the Joker. It has also been called the conclusion of the Nolan Batman movies trilogy. The last scene of the movie shows the Joker running through the streets of Gotham City.

The film is set during the night in Gotham city and mainly involves the Batman and his sidekick, Robin.
