The Dark Knight Rises DVD/Blu-ray will be hitting stores on December 4 and now we have our first look at the trilogy box set which will coincide with the final film’s release.

Just a week ago it was confirmed (indirectly) by Warner Bros. that The Dark Knight Rises DVD/Blu-ray would be available for purchase on December 3 via a video description on their official Youtube channel. Reports were that this would be the global release date, but upon further investigation, it appears that this will be the U.K. release date and the U.S. release date will be the following Tuesday (December 4). Traditionally, DVD/Blu-ray releases take place in the U.K. on Mondays and in the U.S. on Tuesdays.

Update: Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has now confirmed a December 4 release date.

Below we have our first look at The Dark Knight trilogy DVD/Blu-ray box set, which will include Batman Begins (2005), The Dark Knight (2008), The Dark Knight Rises (2012), and includes a booklet with additional art and previously unknown information about director Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy. As of now the box set does not yet have an official price. The suggested retail for The Dark Knight trilogy Giftset including the broken cowl is $52.99.

Will you be picking up ‘The Dark Knight’ trilogy box set?

Rumors began to swirl weeks back about an extended cut of the The Dark Knight Rises when a costume designer from the film leaked details which revealed that some additional scenes were shot for Bane’s past, but were cut from the theatrical release which hit theaters back in July. Most assumed (hoped) that these scenes would be included as a deleted scene or a behind-the-scenes feature, but so far it seems this is not the case.

In case you’re curious why an extended cut of the film won’t be released, the buck stops with director Chris Nolan. Now a household name, he has never been the kind that releases “director’s cuts” of his films – he insists that the final film is exactly what he intended his rabid fans to experience in theaters. We also know him to be an advocate of not moving to digital filming, and proved this by shooting 70 minutes of The Dark Knight Rises on 70mm IMAX film. A pioneer in the IMAX industry, Nolan continues to impress with an ingenious style and constant originality and we look forward to catching his latest masterpiece on DVD/Blu-ray this December.

    Ugh the Blu-Ray mark at the top really ruins artwork. I wish they’d find a way to be more subtle or something. ANd I think the shattered mask thing is a bit much. But I’ll probably be buying Blu-Ray in some capacity.

      Alot of people really like the blue ray mark. I have no preference as my movies are not physical anymore, but I know that I hate when the top of my xbox cases because one is the platinum edition or something like that.

        Oh, thank God I’m not alone in that. I get super OCD when it comes to movie and game cases. I even buy Blu-ray cases so that all of them are the same style.

          I know what you mean, I have refused to buy certain editions of books in a series and ordered the one that matched mine off amazon instead.

      I’ve always liked the blu-ray mark. I see it and I think, “I invested in the best!” lol. I’ll definitely be saving my money for this!

  • Michael

  • Jason

    How much would this cost?

      About $25. That’s how much most Blu Rays cost.

    I find weird that in the DVD trilogy set, the cover in the box that holds the case of the dvds has only the batman logo of Batman Begins and The Dark Knight’s, and the inside case has the three logos mashed up…

    • Guest

      Actually, it’s the one for Begins. The logo was slightly “damaged” for Dark Knight and then totally messed up for Rises. I kinda liked that they used that as a subtle theme.

    Could somebody give an indication when the Box, not just the last movie, will be released?

    • Jason

      Article says it will come out the same day as the final movie. So December 3rd.

      I hate Ultraviolet! What happened to the awesome Digital Copies! Those were quick, and easy to use. Warner Bros – Is the only one that does this stupid “Ultraviolet” Crap.
