Released: 2008
Director: Christopher Nolan
Starring: Christian Bale, Aaron Eckhart, Heath Ledger, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Michael Caine

Nolan's dark and unrelenting follow-up to Batman Begins pits Bale's gravelly voiced Cape Crusader against one of the best movie villains ever: Heath Ledger's maniacal Joker. Sadly, he won't reprise the role, but on the bright side Maggie Gyllenhaal won't be back either.
