On September 24, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment is releasing The Dark Knight Trilogy: Ultimate Collector’s Edition, which collects Christopher Nolan’s three Batman films - Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, and The Dark Knight Rises.
The six-disc set presents the films with their existing content, plus two new featurettes and exclusive new collectible memorabilia, so it appears geared at fans, who somehow avoided buying the previous releases, and completists who have to have every latest release.
The new Special Features are:
- 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
And the new memorabilia exclusive to the Ultimate Collector’s Edition is:
- 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
Not sure yet if it will be Mat's Pick of the Week, but will you be adding it to your shopping list? Is there enough for you to double-dip?
