After Amazon.com gave buyers permission to pre-order The Dark Knight Rises on Blu-ray and DVD combo, it shot right to the number one position on Amazon's hourly updated Blu-ray bestsellers list. The top two positions had been held by Marvel's The Avengers for the past several weeks, and it took the Batman's final adventure to knock Nick Fury's band of superheroes from their perch. With the December 4 release date still a ways off, The Dark Knight Rises could be sitting in that top spot for quite some time.

Looking down a few spots on Amazon's bestsellers chart reveals The Dark Knight Rises: Limited Edition Bat Cowl set is sitting in the fifth position. It's priced $11 higher than the standard version due to the inclusion of the cowl that Bane shatters in the film, but still performing strongly and working its way up the charts. There's still some room for this price to drop a little between now and release, and anyone who pre-orders will automatically get the lowest price.
