PG-13 | | Action, Thriller
Eight years after the Joker's reign of anarchy, Batman, with the help of the enigmatic Catwoman, is forced from his exile to save Gotham City, now on the edge of total annihilation, from the brutal guerrilla terrorist Bane.
This is only the second "Batman" film not to include the word ''Batman'' in the title.
I knew Harvey Dent. I was his friend. And it will be a very long time before someone... inspires us the way he did. I believed in Harvey Dent.
(at around 56 mins) Throughout the trilogy, Batman noticeably wears thick black make up around his eyes when he has his mask on. However, when he returns The Bat to the cave for the first time, he talks with Alfred without his mask on, yet there is no sign of any make-up.
The title does not appear onscreen until after the last scene and before the end credits.
On IMAX 70mm prints of Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol (2011), this film's prologue was shown as a special preview. It contained, with only one exception, entirely different takes of Bane's dialogue.
