The stars of “The Dark Knight Rises” are walking the red carpet at the film’s world premiere in New York City, and we’re live-streaming the event.
The film, which opens in theaters Friday, caps Nolan’s epic Batman trilogy, which stars Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne and Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle (also known as Catwoman).
Attending the premiere are Nolan, Bale, Hathaway, Tom Hardy (who plays villain Bane), Michael Caine (Alfred), Gary Oldman (Commissioner Gordon), Marion Cotillard, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Morgan Freeman, Christopher Nolan, writers Jonathan Nolan and David S. Goyer and producers Emma Thomas and Charles Roven.
Nolan’s first Batman film, 2005’s “Batman Begins,” earned an Oscar nod, and 2008’s “The Dark Knight” won two Oscars, including a posthumous supporting actor win for Heath Ledger, who stunned critics and theatergoers as the Joker.
“The Dark Knight Rises” is poised to give “The Avengers” — the superhero smash hit of the summer — a run for its money at the box office. In 2008, “The Dark Knight” grossed more than $533 million, setting box-office records.
