First Look at THE DARK KNIGHT RISES Collectible Bat Cowl Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack, Plus Details on the Special Features

     September 27, 2012


Yesterday we got a first peek at the UK box art for The Dark Knight Trilogy box set, but today we’ve got an official first look at the collectible packaging for The Dark Knight Rises Blu-ray/DVD combo pack.  Obviously the film will be available in a regular Blu-ray/DVD case when it hits stores, but Warner Bros. is also packaging the film with a limited edition broken Bat Cowl, reminiscent of the one Bane drops after first beating the crap out of Batman in The Dark Knight Rises.

Hit the jump to take a look at the packaging and to learn what special features will be included on the Blu-ray combo pack.  The Dark Knight Rises will be released on Blu-ray, DVD, and digital download on December 4th.

The unveiling of the home video release comes courtesy of EW, who adds that the Blu-ray combo pack of The Dark Knight Rises will come with plenty of extras.  The special features include a documentary about the history of the batmobile, a featurette called The Journey of Bruce Wayne, trailers, and art gallerys.  The main event, though, is a 17-featurette in-depth look at the making of The Dark Knight Rises called Ending the Knight that documents how Christopher Nolan brought the film to fruition.

As expected, that rumored director’s cut is nowhere to be found nor are any deleted scenes.  Ending the Knight looks like it will only be available on the Blu-ray combo pack, but both the Blu-ray and DVD will include the Journey of Bruce Wayne featurette (of which no details are given).  We’ll likely get a more detailed rundown of the special features included on the Dark Knight Rises Blu-ray soon, but for now take a look at the limited edition packaging below.

    Cue TDKR haters in 3…2…1….

    • will

      I seriously don’t understand how anyone could hate this movie. Even if you’re opposed to Nolan, or his interpretation of Batman, or Bane’s voice, or the few small kinks in the script, you can’t deny the sheer entertainment value that it provides.

      • Someone

        It’s cool to hate on popular stuff, it’s always been that way. Some people just have that mindset from the get go. And it’s fucking childish.

      • Henrikus

        I was expecting something better from Nolan. Something that challenges our mind, not some dumb fun that I can get from movies like Battleship. Oh well, everyone has their own opinions.

      • C138

        Word. Whatever problems the film has with its narrative and some underdeveloped characters, this film has immense entertainment value. And it’s the one major movie I saw this summer that I felt actually improved a bit upon a second viewing. I can’t wait to own this and watch it again.

      • Brian

        Will, I’m not a fan of Nolan and I despise his version of Batman. That said, Rises is one of the best movies I’ve seen in a good while. I never understood the hate for Bane’s voice either. That voice and that demeanor coming from that physical character is utterly terrifying. He’s up there as one of the best bad guys in a movie.

    • Jamesy

      I don’t hate TDKR, I just think it’s the weakest…story telling wise, in the trilogy. I felt that there was more to be told, little bits missing here and there. Still a very enjoyable movie and a hell of a lot better than most other sh*t churned out in hollywood.

    “dumb fun that I can get from movies like Battleship”
    What….I don’t even….

  • Henrikus

    is there going to be a limited edition for dark knight trilogy as well?

    • Adam Chitwood

      No word yet. This is actually the first time WB has released official details regarding the Blu-ray release of TDKR, so I assume we’ll hear more soon.

  • murdernexxus

    ALL of Nolans Batman films are better than any that came before. i think people who hated TDKR probably never saw Batman and Robin. maybe they should stick to harry potter and hunger games..

    • Travis

      LOLZ…and Twilight too.

      What surprises me a bit is that, since it’s release, not one single piece I’ve read on TDKR states anything about praising Nolan in regards to Bane and finally giving us an awesome and smart interpretation of the character. Recall the last time Bane was in a Batman flick? Without TDKR, we’d still be stuck with Schumacher’s dipshit interpretation.

      Nice to hear about the Blu-ray. I’m getting the Steelbook myself, to complete my trilogy; more than confident Best Buy will hook me up with that golden opportunity.

    This movie was a major disappointment in my opinion. Mainly because there was way too much screen time for John Blake and Gordon, and very little time for Batman and Alfred :(

    • Strong Enough


  • James

    Loved the film! Hell, I Loved the entire trilogy! I can’t wait to pick this up!

  • Fernando Solis

    Movie comes out on my Birthday. Already know what my present is.

  • Migzter13

    To all the haters… both of my middle fingers salute you!:D

    • bigevilworldwide

      Yes cause we all know that not liking something immediately makes someone a hater…..Guess what the film just wasn’t that good….The Dark knight was amazing, Rises not so much between it being the weakest storywise and the half SNL Sean Connery celebrity jeopardy impersonation that Bane had goin on. It was not spectacular,,,,,Hence why it didn’t play as long in theaters there is a reason The Avengers was a better movie….Theres a reason everyone has different tastes so shove that hater crap up your ass

      • Travis

        @bigevil – Opinions, opinions. Just like a**holes. And a good day to you sir. Your opinion means as much as everyone else (including myself) on the internet, which isn’t really much. The point is that some people like TDKR, some people don’t. Some people like The Avengers, some don’t. Stop acting like your opinion overrules others.

      • Travis

        Yea, not everyone agrees with you either, bigevil. I love TDKR. Others like it too. Others don’t. So what? Stop acting like a quintessential web troll.

  • breakin in down for the people

    What’s up with the obnoxious fanboyism for the Dark Knight Rises? People have many, many valid critiques of the film. There were many poor script choices and the dialogue was bad. So what? Why do you all get so defensive and go “LOL, them must be trolls for not liking it”. Does a movie you like have to be considered perfect by everyone else on the planet? Can’t you enjoy something while recognizing there maybe flaws? Or at least formulating a legitimate defense for the reason you think they’re not flaws? Anybody who says they didn’t like it gets shot down and designated a troll. This movie wasn’t close to good, let alone Citizen Kane or The Godfather. You kids need to goddamn relax.

      It’s called the Internet. Sucks, doesn’t it?

      TDKR rules!!!
