Cillian walks the black carpet -- Dark Night premiere

THE stars of the latest Batman movie descended on New York last night for the premiere of The Dark Knight Rises.

Irish actor Cillian Murphy joined co-star Christian Bale on the red carpet for one of the most eagerly anticipated summer blockbusters.

Anne Hathaway and Marion Cotillard looked to contrast the film's darkness with all-white ensembles.

Director Christopher Nolan and actors Morgan Freeman and Gary Oldman joined the cast.
