Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne in The Dark Knight (Batman Begins Sequel)

The much hyped "The Dark Knight" is based on the fictional DC Comics character Batman. This film is a sequel to 2005's Batman Begins, which rebooted the Batman film series after an 8 year hiatus. Christopher Nolan returns as the director, and Christian Bale reprises the lead role but with a different lead girl: Maggie Gyllenhaal, the role is originally for Katie Holmes but she turned down the offer. Batman's primary conflicts in the film come from his fight against the Joker (Heath Ledger) and his strained friendship with district attorney Harvey Dent (Aaron Eckhart).

The film will be released on July 17, 2008 in Australia, on July 18, 2008 in North America, and on July 25, 2008 in the United Kingdom. There is no definite playdate for Asia, just wait for the pirated version LOL. See the teaser after the jump.
