Sure we love DVDs as a holiday gift, but Warner is trying to over-stuff a few stockings by releasing “The Dark Knight” in TWO versions this winter. Bah humbug!
According to High-Def Digest, the studio is putting out a 2-disc version, as well as collectible “limited” editions. The standard set will include 1080p/VC-1 video and Dolby TrueHD 5.1 sound. Expect a few featurettes on the first disc, with the second devoted to the entire film in HD, with a few featurettes, the 6-episode “Gotham Tonight” collection, and various galleries, stills, trailers, and TV spots. The Limited Edition comes in “Bat Pod” packaging. Other than that, the specs seem the same.
This will be Warner’s first BD-Live release. It will also include a digital copy.
According to Box Office Mojo, “The Dark Knight” has grossed over $524 million to date. Both Blu-ray versions of “The Dark Knight” will be available starting December 9.
