The Dark Knight returns - to the big screen! After four blockbuster movies, director Christopher Nolan (Memento) goes back to the origins of Batman in Batman Begins, with a stellar cast including Christian Bale and Michael Caine, joined by Liam Neeson, Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman and Cillian Murphy!
The Art of Batman Begins is the must-have official companion to this highly anticipated re-imagining of the Batman movie mythos, and is simply one of the most in-depth 'art of' books ever produced.
It features exclusive interviews and background information accompanying hundreds of photos, sketches, storyboards and pieces of stunning, fully painted production art, chronicling every aspect of the movie's design - from the Bat-suit and Batmobile, to Arkham Asylum and Gotham City!

Review by aryadeschain
From the entire Dark Knight Trilogy, Batman Begins was, by far, my favorite movie, so when I saw this beauty sitting on an isolated shelf of a local bookstore, I just KNEW I had to buy it. And honestly, back when I bought the Man of Steel book, I was expecting something AT LEAST with this book's level. The Art of Batman Begins is full of concept arts, excellent concept scenes and pieces of the movie's storyboard, which is exactly what I was expecting from it (though I've got to say that I wouldn't complain if it had more of it).<br/>I like how the book details several interesting and different aspects of the Batman Begins universe, adding a couple of short explanations, like the Batmobile, the grapple gun, Batman's infamous suit, parts of the batcave and the several outfits wore by different characters.<br/>I wish this book lasted a bit longer though. I can never have enough of Batman's universe.
