Masters of the comic book film soundtrack, Hans Zimmer and James Newton Howard strike again in this thrilling sequel to Batman Begins.

Featuring the late Heath Ledger in an unforgettable performance as The Joker, Christopher Nolan's notably darker, more mature update of the Batman franchise really took off with The Dark Knight. What's more, Hans Zimmer and James Newton Howard's score started to become just as loved as the movies, even netting the Grammy Award for best soundtrack album in 2009.
