You've seen the trailer for the Blu-Ray/DVD release of THE DARK KNIGHT RISES, you've seen some description in terms of what special features will be present, and you've seen the very cool "Broken Cowl" case (shown again below).  Well now you can take a look at the full details regarding each of the many different Blu-Ray/DVD options releasing this December 4th and decide which option is right for you.  

Unless of course you're going to hold out for the semi-mysterious "Dark Knight Trilogy Ultimate Collector's Edition" releasing some time in 2013.  No details have been released about that, but list of features and such given below seems at first glance to be rather comprehensive, so I'm all the more curious as to what Warner Bros. is holding back.  That being said, we probably won't know until after the Holiday Season and everyone has gone out and bought the first round of Blu-Ray/DVD release, so now we wait... to double dip or not to to double dip, that is the current question.

“The Dark Knight Rises” arrives this holiday season onto Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD and Digital Download on December 4 from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Group. In the epic conclusion to filmmaker Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight trilogy, Gotham City is threatened by the masked terrorist Bane, forcing Batman to return from an eight-year absence and fight for his city one more time.

Also available will be the free “The Dark Knight Rises” app for IOS 5.0 or higher compatible devices including iPhone and iPad, and Samsung Galaxy devices including S2, S3, Note, Nexus and Tab (operating system requirements vary by device). Building upon the already available “TDKR: Gotham City’s Most Wanted” app, “The Dark Knight Rises” app will be updated in two phases. The first update, which will be available in late October, will include several interactive activities such as a photo application that will allow users to put themselves into a Tumbler, a video application that will allow users to insert a Tumbler into their personal videos, and more. The second update, which will be available on December 4, will integrate second screen functionality into the app. It will allow users to sync compatible mobile devices with the Blu-ray disc via BD-Live enabled Blu-ray players connected to the same Local Area Network to access exclusive bonus content. The bonus content will include film location information, Gotham City maps, film trivia, photo galleries and “making of” featurettes. In addition, the second screen app controls playback of the film on your TV via Blu-ray player. “The Dark Knight Rises” app will be available through the iTunes store and Google Play.

“The Dark Knight Rises” will be available on Blu-ray Combo Pack for $35.99 and on single disc DVD for $28.98. The Blu-ray Combo Pack features the film in hi-definition on Blu-ray and in standard definition on DVD. “The Dark Knight Rises” Blu-ray disc takes advantage of the marriage of IMAX® and 35mm formats by using the hybrid master to replicate the unique theatrical experience of integrated film formats. Both the Blu-ray Combo Pack and the single disc DVD include UltraViolet which allows consumers to download and instantly stream the standard definition version of the film to a wide range of devices including computers and compatible tablets, smartphones, game consoles, Internet-connected TVs and Blu-ray players.

Also available December 4, just in time for holiday gift-giving, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will release “The Dark Knight Trilogy Limited Edition Giftset,” featuring “Batman Begins,” “The Dark Knight” and “The Dark Knight Rises” all in one collection. Available on Blu-ray or standard definition DVD, “The Dark Knight Trilogy Limited Edition Giftset” will also include a premium book exclusive to the collection, which takes fans deeper into the epic franchise, as well as existing special features. Warner Bros. Home Entertainment also plans to release “The Dark Knight Trilogy Ultimate Collector’s Edition” in 2013.

Extra Tidbit: *That line sounds good, but doesn't quite make sense (as it can only really go one way). Which is also one of the main complaints people seem to have leveled at THE DARK KNIGHT RISES. And I can somewhat appreciate such observations, but they also don't make me f***ing love this film any less.

Aaaaah maaaaaan, I was afraid they were going to use the most pathetic poster I've ever seen for the Blu-Ray cover. Seriously...movies spectacular, but that poster is....I don't say this much but whoever designed it needs to be fired immediately. That box set can't get here soon enough. *groan*

I'm glad that the Blu Ray version will still have the IMAX footage like The Dark Knight's Blu Ray release. Will also be getting the broken cowl edition.

That Steelbook is absolutely sick. Beats the hell out of both the US Blu-Ray and DVD covers. Then again, most anything would beat out that DVD cover...

Wonder what WB has in store for 2013's release. I will probably get the broken cowl set for my epic completion of this trilogy. Love this movie to death.

I already own 1,2 on blu-ray, and regardless of trilogy set or not, I'm planning on getting the cowl (anyone purchasing the single combo back would be crazy not to spend the extra 4$ for the cowl) . But i think ill defiantly be holding out for the "Dark Knight Trilogy Ultimate Collector's Edition".

Cool Stuff

I am LOVING the broken cowl edition for TDKR. Looks very well done. It's hard to get a good sense of scale of it , though. I am kind of disappointed with the trilogy box set though, I was hoping for something a lot cooler like the cowl. I might be getting both!

Not on my must buy list, this movie sucked and is far from epic as described.
