‘The Dark Knight’ Trilogy Ultimate Collectors Edition Box Set Revealed

Director Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight trilogy, which includes 2005's Batman Begins, 2008's The Dark Knight and 2012's The Dark Knight Rises, is one of the most beloved superhero franchises to ever grace the big screen, and its hard core legion of fans claim it as one of the most prolific. The entire series is coming home in The Dark Knight Trilogy Ultimate Collector's Edition, which Warner Bros. will introduce fall of 2013, just in time for the holidays.

The first photos of this anxiously awaited set have surfaced, offering the first details of any kind about what we can expect to find on store shelves. Featured are three Batman toy vehicles and our first look at the cover and packaging.

According to The Batcave, the set will include nine discs (2 Blu-rays and 1 DVD per film) as well as a book, three prints (each featuring one of the trilogy's central villains), a poster and three toy models of the Batman vehicles featured in the series (the Tumbler, the Batpod and The Bat). This gorgeous set will be released on October 2nd (though that date has not yet been confirmed by the studio).

While its being speculated that Christopher Nolan will include more personal special features not found on the initial home release of the three films, its unlikely that fans will finally get to see any deleted scenes from any of the movies. Nolan is notorious for refusing to release alternative cuts of his films, and it won't happen here. It is possible that he, or other cast and crew members, have recorded audio commentaries for the three films. Final details won't be known until Warner Bros. releases the official press release.

Are you excited for this ultimate fan experience? Or will you stand by the versions you already own? Let us know what you think!

The Dark Knight was released July 18th, 2008.

        @ghostman@felipe-11 I see now they are complaining about the black levels, coloring, contrast, and whatnot on the BB and TDK version out right now and they want remastered versions of those films in this set. However I just don't see WB spending their time and money on that.

          @thedude1 Begins on page 6. Everyone over at blu-ray.com keeps talking about wanting "new transfers" of BB and TDK.

            @ghostman Can you post a link to that please? And Why would they need to be remastered? Batman Begins is only 8 years old while TDK is only 5 years old.

            • felipe-11 • 2 years ago

              @ghostman That seems highly unlikely. Remastering transfers is usually saved for older films, those two are brand new and both look damn fine. In any case maybe just Batman Begins, since it was an earlier Blu-ray release.

                There's speculation on forums that this set will include brand new remastered transfers of Batman Begins and The Dark Knight. Any thoughts on that, and do you want new transfers?

                  @jasonkat Or, if you can buy this set, you should already have a DVD player for those who don't have blu-rays yet.

                  And I doubt you can fit all THREE films onto one disc. Each movie is 150 minutes long, which adds up to nearly 8 hours. Most blu-rays can only hold up to 4 hours of information.

                    @mr.K

                    True, but if you can buy this set then you should already own a blurray disc player.

                      Awesome, but I already own all 3 films, so there's no way I'm getting this.

                        @jasonkat "On a side note. I dont see why it should have a dvd at all. we'r in 2013. a single bluray can hold a sh*tload of data."

                        Probably because not everyone in the world can afford a Blu-Ray players.

                          a total of 9 discs...

                          I can see each film having a

                          BLURAY... Batman Begains/Dark Knight, Dark Knight Rises-(movie only),

                          DVD... Batman Begains/Dark Knight, Dark Knight Rises-(movie only) and special disc with extra footage we already seen.

                          People can drool all they want over this, but its nothing but money grab. unless you just buy thee for collectors items then ok i guess. but its gonna be around 79.99 maybe 124.99

                          On a side note. I dont see why it should have a dvd at all. we'r in 2013. a single bluray can hold a sh*tload of data, such as the movie, and all that extras, it can even fit both 2 films on 1 (BRD), (maybe even all3) but they wont do that, they wana make it look big so they just put them out all in a single disc each. add a new cover art and a few hot wheel-toys,

                                @ghostman The thing is nothing is confirmed yet. We don't even know if these pictures are legit. And if the October release is true(which makes no sense December seems much better) we probably won't get a full list of extras and box art until late August.

                                  I'd prefer it as a 6-disc set without the DVDs, toys, and book. Don't want to pay $100+ for a set I'm only half interested in. I'd stick with the last trilogy boxset that was released, but darnit, I want that bonus disc! :P

                                      @thedude1 I just wish there was more detail put into this. Something akin to the Harry Potter ultimate box set. I theorized this would be packaged inside the Tumbler and feature replica blue prints and Batarangs.

                                          @ghostman Yeah TDKR has two Blu Rays. I'd like to see them skip over the features they have already released in the prior releases and give us new extras. And they could easily fill the time. Heck TDKR there is suppose to be tons of extras of Bane they cut from the film. Not to mention all the behind the scenes of Ledger in TDK.
