'The Dark Knight Rises' hit theaters this past summer to high box office numbers and continued to "rise" in popularity as word spread about Christopher Nolan's last film in the 'Dark Knight' trilogy. And soon, one of the biggest hits of the summer, which gave 'The Avengers' a strenuous run for its money, will be coming home on Blu-ray and DVD. What better way to get pumped than to relive the glory of Batman's final hours in the trailer for 'The Dark Knight Rises' Blu-ray combo pack?
We've known for a while now that 'The Dark Knight Rises' would be hitting DVD and Blu-ray the first week of December (now December 4), but we didn't know the specs for this summer's second biggest hit. Would there be the thirty minutes of deleted scenes that were rumored, or any deleted material at all? The specs are in, the answer is no.
Depending on where you live, Christopher Nolan’s superhero smash ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ might still be playing in multiplexes… sometimes even on your local IMAX screen. But thanks to the ever-shrinking window between theatrical and DVD release, you now can start planning to own ‘Rises’ on December 3, and here are a few of the options that will be at your consumer-driven fingertips.
It's bittersweet to think that 'The Dark Knight Rises' marked the end of Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy, considering many moviegoers were in agreement that it was not only the highlight of the summer, but also the best of the three films. And yet, it's sad to see it come to an end.
On the other hand, there's still more images and footage to be seen. 'The Dark Knight Rises' DVD and Blu-ray edition hits this December 3, and will be filled with a lot of extras everyone can enjoy. But while we're waiting to purchase what will most likely be a treasured edition to our movie libraries, newly released photos of a rarely seen photo shoot for 'The Dark Knight' give us a closer look at another iconic moment from the movie trilogy -- Heath Ledger in full Joker makeup and costume.
It's that time of the month when The Criterion Collection announces their upcoming titles. And though there may not be many surprises for those paying attention, we're finally getting Christopher Nolan in the prestigious collection, and a Blu-ray upgrade of one of Criterion's greatest special editions.
'The Dark Knight Rises' director's cut was first rumored a week ago when it was reported the upcoming 'Dark Knight Rises' DVD and Blu-ray would include an additional 30-minutes of footage edited into the theatrical cut. But the actual director himself, Christopher Nolan, has something to say about this and hopefully you didn't let yourself get too excited.
Here's a little perspective for you on this slow news day: Christopher Nolan's 'The Dark Knight Rises' sold 12 million fewer tickets than Tim Burton's 'Batman,' released in 1989. Are fewer people heading to the theater these days? It's hard to believe more people were excited for Burton's film than Nolan's.
