C2E2: Marvel Ventures Into "Secret Wars'" "Warzones"
One of the most-anticipated releases of the year, the Blu-ray is jam-packed with bonus features, including: a Batmobile documentary (spotlighting all five vehicles); “Ending the Knight,” a look at how Christopher Nolan and his team created the ending to the big-screen trilogy; trailers; and art galleries. The DVD boasts “The Journey of Bruce Wayne” featurette. Notably absent is any director commentary, which probably shouldn’t come as a surprise.
As was the case with The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises offers a limited-edition set, this time featuring a broken cowl (below). Warner Bros. also announced the Dec. 4 release of “The Dark Knight Trilogy Limited Edition Giftset,” which includes all three of Nolan’s films and a collectible book that delves into their production. Another box set, “The Dark Knight Trilogy Ultimate Collector’s Edition” will arrive sometime in 2013.
Suggested retail for the Giftset is set at $52.99. The Dark Knight Rises Blu-ray combo pack is set at $35.99, and $39.99 for the Limited Edition Bat Cowl set. The DVD is $28.98. You can see a breakdown of the bonus features below.
The film, which has grossed more than $1 billion worldwide, stars Christian Bale as Batman, Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle, Tom Hardy as Bane, Marion Cotillard as Miranda Tale, Michael Caine as Alfred, Gary Oldman as Commissioner Gordon, Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Officer John Blake and Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox.
