The Dark Knight Rises… In Your Living Room
By Dan Casey on September 27, 2012
You merely adopted the act of watching awesome movies in the comfort of your own home; Warner Bros. Home Entertainment was born in it, molded by it, and to prove it, they’re releasing one of the summer’s biggest hits, The Dark Knight Rises, on Blu-ray and DVD. Coming on December 4th, you can be the hero Christmas needs and the one it deserves by bringing home a Blu-ray Combo Pack for $35.99, a single disc DVD for $28.98 or digitally. Even a former billionaire like Bruce Wayne could afford one of these bad boys.
Like any good detective, you’ll probably want to investigate what makes this package special. Well, the combo pack comes with a special Bat Cowl collectible package and includes scores of behind-the-scenes production materials, a documentary about the evolution of the Batmobile, a bonus doc about the the final film’s making-of, and a slew of trailers and art galleries to make sure that the only thing you’ll be leaving the living room for is another glass of Fernet Branca (so you can really get in the zone while watching).
Not too shabby, huh? However, if you’re a habitual collector like Bruce Wayne (really, who needs a giant penny?), then you’ll want to snag The Dark Knight Trilogy Limited Edition Giftset, which is also avalable on December 4th. Including Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, and The Dark Knight Rises, the single collection comes with all of the aforementioned goodies as well as a special book exclusive to the collection. If they took you any deeper into Batman’s world, they’d have to kill your parents. At least you’d be a billionaire though with a sweet family mansion, so try to look on the bright side.
(And here’s the inevitable Editor’s Note: As you know, the movie was produced by Legendary Pictures, Warner Bros. Pictures, DC Entertainment, and Syncopy, and Nerdist Industries is part of Legendary now. We’re still editorially independent; we did want you to know that this thing is coming out, because we’ll all be queuing up to buy it just like you)
