The Dark Knight was released 8 years ago this day

Exactly 8 years ago this day, Christopher Nolan unleashed the second chapter of what would ultimately be his Batman Trilogy of films in "The Dark Knight" -  the sequel to 2005's "Batman Begins" and featuring Christian Bale returning to the role of Bruce Wayne/ Batman as he sets out to confront a new and unrelenting criminal mastermind known as The Joker. The film would go on to become one of the most popular superhero films of all time, grossing a billion in the box office and also winning an award in the Academy Awards - namely for the late Heath Ledger's performance as The Joker.

The Dark Knight - Original Theatrical Trailer

While 2012's "The Dark Knight Rises" wrapped up Nolan's take on the character and finished Bruce Wayne's story in those three movies, The Dark Knight Trilogy would inspire and influence how Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment would approach their future superhero movies - namely their "DC Extended Universe" of films that includes this year's "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" and the upcoming "Suicide Squad". Ben Affleck may be the new Batman in town now, but Christian Bale's time in the Batsuit will be remembered - especially in this film where the stakes were placed against him by Ledger's Clown Prince of Crime. This movie definitely deserves a rewatch.
