The Dark Knight_UCE_Glam (6-26)3

Since we’ve had three Dark Knight films from Christopher Nolan, it’s only fair that we get a collector’s edition that includes all the films in one nice package. Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has announced that The Dark Knight Trilogy: Ultimate Collector’s Edition will be available on Blu-ray September 24, 2013.

The set includes existing extra contest, two new featurettes and exclusive new collectibles. It will be available for $99.97 SRP.

Here are the full details for what’s included in the Ultimate Collector’s Edition:

  • Disc 1 – Batman Begins Feature and Special Features
  • Disc 2 – The Dark Knight Feature
  • Disc 3 – The Dark Knight Special Features
  • Disc 4 – The Dark Knight Rises Feature
  • Disc 5 – The Dark Knight Rises Special Features
  • Disc 6 – Bonus Disc of New Special Features (details follow)

NEW Special Features:

  • The Fire Rises: The Creation and Impact of The Dark Knight Trilogy – The inside perspective on the fascinating story behind the creation of one of the most celebrated franchises and how it changed the scope of movie making….forever. Full of never-before-seen footage, rare moments, and exclusive interviews with Guillermo Del Toro, Damon Lindelof, Michael Mann, Richard Roeper, Zack Snyder and others.
  • Christopher Nolan & Richard Donner: A Conversation – For the first time, Directors Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight Trilogy) and Richard Donner (Superman) sit down to discuss the trials and triumphs involved in bringing the two most iconic superheroes of all time to the big screen, and how Superman influenced Nolan when developing Batman Begins.
  • IMAX® Sequences: The Dark Knight; The Dark Knight Rises – See your favorite scenes as they were intended in the original IMAX© aspect ratio

Exclusive NEW Memorabilia:

· Premium Mattel Hot Wheels Vehicles: Batmobile, Batpod and Tumbler
· Newly commissioned collectible art cards by Mondo featuring Scarecrow, Joker, Bane, Harvey Dent, and Ra’s al Ghul
· 48-page hardcover book featuring production stills and behind the scenes images from all three movies

The one thing that felt very lacking from the previous Dark Knight Blu-rays were the extras. We really didn’t get to see much of the behind-the-scenes on set, especially for The Dark Knight. I know many, including myself, would be interested to see Heath Ledger as Joker on the set (perhaps they didn’t include that to pay their respects). Sadly, I think this set won’t be including any on-set footage like that.
