Update: It would appear we grabbed the Limited Edition images just in time as Warner removed them from their press website a couple hours after adding them. Does this mean the Limited Edition isn’t coming? Hard to say. If we had to guess, I’d say Warner simply wasn’t ready to announce it yet.
Today Warner Home Video has officially announced The Dark Knight is coming to Blu-ray Disc on December 9.
Earlier today we shared what was believed to be the cover art for The Dark Knight at the time. Now that we have artwork direct from Warner it appears that was only a placeholder.
Though not 100% confirmed, there will be two Blu-ray skus for The Dark Knight: a standard edition and a two-disc limited edition box that comes with a Bat-Pod display case. Below you’ll see the artwork for each package.
Regardless of version, The Dark Knight will be presented in widescreen 2.4:1 1080p video and 5.1 Dolby TrueHD audio.
We don’t have extras to share on the standard edition, if in fact they are different from the limited edition (we don’t believe they are). We do know with certainty that the limited edition will include the following.
- Exclusive Bat-Pod Display Case
- Gotham Uncovered: Creation of a Scene
- Batman Tech: The Incredible Gadgets and Tools (HD)
- Batman Unmakes: The Psychology of the Dark Knight (HD)
- Gotham Tonight – 6 Episodes of Gotham’s news program
- The Galleries – the Joker Cards, Concept Art, Poster Art, Productions Stills, Trailers, TV Spots
