The Dark Knight Rises DVD/Blu-ray release date is finally revealed and it’s sooner than the rumored release date we reported a few weeks back.

On December 4, The Dark Knight Rises Blu-ray and DVD will hit store shelves and online retailers. A few weeks back it was reported that the film would be available on December 7, but it looks like we’ll have it a bit sooner than we thought. Just in time for Christmas, and works out considering nearly all DVD/Blu-rays are released in the U.S. on Tuesdays. The U.K. release date will be December 3, considering most of their DVD/Blu-rays are released on Mondays.

Update: The Dark Knight Rises DVD/Blu-ray release date has now been confirmed as December 4.

You may remember that rumors began swirling about an extended cut of the film when special features from the DVD were leaked which revealed that additional scenes from Bane’s past were shot but were never added. It was assumed that such a scene could be included as a deleted scene or a special feature, but if we know Nolan, this will most likely not be the case. The Dark Knight Rises DVD/Blu-ray will still be an incredible seller, as it has gone on to break 1 Billion at the worldwide box office and is still chugging along in some countries over seas.

The dedicated crew over at Batman-News.com were the ones who spotted the released date in the description of a trailer on Youtube that Warner Bros. released which we’ve included a screenshot of below. You’ll notice that they (indirectly) confirm that The Dark Knight Rises will be available for purchase and download on December 3.

In interesting but potentially brilliant casting news, comedian Amy Schumer will be taking on the role of Barbie for a live-action film.

Take a moment to soak in the news. Now revel in the idea. This could be awesome.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Amy Schumer is not only leading the project on screen, but she’ll also have an influence on the script.

Last year, Sony had their pick of three complete scripts for a live-action Barbie movie. Of those three, they chose Hilary Winston’s. Now that Schumer is on board, THR says to expect her and her sister, Kim Caramele, to rewrite Winston’s original idea.

The plot, given that Schumer doesn’t change the major details, “begins in a perfect land of Barbies where one woman slowly awakens to the fact that she doesn’t fit it. She is expelled from the idealistic land and journeys to the real world, where she discovers that being unique is an asset.”

The outlet also addresses the fact that Mattel has had to deal with plenty of criticism regarding body image and race when it comes to the Barbie toys. Schumer’s casting is a great way to speak to some of those issues, and will hopefully provide a positive and uplifting message by the movie’s end.

There will be, of course, some hesitation given Schumer’s previous work. One only has to look as far as Trainwreck and Inside Amy Schumer to see her comedy is often brutally honest and raunchy. Barbie would be shocked.

But Schumer is an actress, after all, and a brilliant comedian. For this “contemporary spin on beauty, feminism and identity,” she seems like just the right fit.

What do you think of Amy Schumer as Barbie?

To entertain himself (and his fans!), Chris Pratt has been updating his Instagram with funny photos and captions from the tour.

There’s some real gold in there, but the best part is when he realizes that fans really want to see some pictures of Jennifer Lawrence — who doesn’t have her own social media accounts — and proceeds to very decidedly not include her!

Update: He did it again.
