THURSDAY THE DARK KNIGHT RISES
8.30PM, FOXTEL ACTION/ADVENTURE
A perfect end to Christopher Nolan’s astonishingly ambitious Batman trilogy. The story picks up eight years after the completion of The Dark Knight, with the Caped Crusader (Christian Bale) forced out of selfimposed exile when a band of nucleararmed anarchists holds Gotham City to ransom. The lead bad guy is Bane, a metal-muzzled menace who will provoke fear and fascination thanks to the brilliant acting of Tom Hardy.
