Batman Begins, directed by the award-winning Christopher Nolan (Memento, Insomnia), unveils the untold origins of the Dark Knight's emergence as a force for good in Gotham City. In the wake of his parents' murder, disillusioned industrial heir Bruce Wayne travels the world seeking the means to fight injustice and turn fear against those who prey on the fearful. He returns to Gotham City and unveils his alter ego: Batman, a masked crusader who uses his strength, intellect, and an array of high-tech deceptions to fight the sinister forces that threaten the city.
As Bruce Wayne/Batman, Christian Bale heads an all-star cast that also includes Michael Caine, Liam Neeson, Katie Holmes, Gary Oldman, Tom Wilkinson, Rutger Hauer and Morgan Freeman. Visionary director Christopher Nolan has delivered the Batman we've been waiting for - a dark legend brought to life in a way never before imagined on the big screen.
This volume contains the complete screenplay of Batman Begins by Christopher Nolan and David S. Goyer, together with storyboards for the picture drawn by Martin Asbury and James Cornish, and an exclusive interview with Christopher Nolan in which he reveals his cinematic vision of The Dark Knight.
