As we’ve seen with plenty of other highly anticipated home video releases, some retailers will have super special exclusive versions of The Dark Knight Rises when it hits Blu-ray in a few months. We recently got our first look at the collectible Bat Cowl Blu-ray/DVD combo packaging, and now we’ve got our first look at the covers for Target and Best Buy’s exclusive versions of the disc. Not only do the covers look different, but both versions will carry different “exclusive” special features that won’t be found on the other home video releases. In other words, in order to see every last extra for The Dark Knight Rises you’ll likely be purchasing multiple copies.
Hit the jump to get for more details on the special features and to get a look at the covers. The Dark Knight Rises will be released on Blu-ray/DVD on December 4th.
Target will be selling two different book versions of the film, per SHH, and though we can assume they’ll come filled with official and behind-the-scenes photos, no details on their contents have been released just yet. On the other hand, Best Buy’s exclusive steelbook edition will come loaded with an exclusive documentary called Reborn, though sadly no details on what the doc entails are known at this time.
We learned previously that all Blu-ray versions of The Dark Knight Rises will include a documentary about the history of the batmobile, a featurette called The Journey of Bruce Wayne, trailers, and art gallerys. The cornerstone special feature—a 17-featurette in-depth look at the making of the film called Ending the Knight—will only be available on the Blu-ray/DVD combo pack.
