Sure! Just like how WB recalled The Departed and Goblet of Fire for their awful transfers.

For non-BluRay people...is the standard 1 disc the way to go? I read somewhere the 2-disc DVD special features are weak.

I just want to own the movie and don't really care for next week's special edition if it's gonna be weak.

The two disc DVD doesn't seem all that great now especially since we are losing out on some extras that only the Blu-ray version is getting i believe. I plan on just buying the 1-disc version but i was hoping it would have a slipcover and include the theatrical trailer at least. I can't stand how a studio like Warner Bros can release a standard 1 disc DVD and not include a little trailer to go with it.

Someone on another forum I visit said it is the regular 2-disc found everywhere EXCEPT for the slipcover. He works at CC, and said the slipcover is oversized because the journal fits underneath it with the movie as well. Basically, you have to keep the journal inside too if you want to keep the slipcover on it.

Thought this might help seeing as how a lot of you are planning on getting this one.

Is the standard DVD quality that shitty?

I mean I am not some super crazy DVD person. If it looks good to the average Joe, I'll be happy. And maybe it'll look better played on my HD-DVD player?

Is the regular DVD still factory sealed inside the slipcover?

the 2 disc dvd version with digital copy...

does anyone know if the dvd version with digital copy will be available at barnes & noble , there website completely omits that feature from the specs.
I have a member card and it would actually be cheaper to order it from them. but i wanted the digital copy. I'm sorry if this question has been answered elsewhere but i tried searching and couldn't find an answer. thanks in advance

I had a chance last week and this week to see the standard DVD and the BD and the DVD looks amazing and the BD looks even more amazing!

What are you guys leaning more toward? The exclusive copies of the dark knight blu-ray or just the regular two disc blu-ray?

Aaaand that's why we're not getting that art with the Blu-ray release. Oh well, cheapest standard Blu-ray for me!

That will not work. CC uses certain UPCs on their exclusives so...

of course if the UPCs don’t match then I won't try but in most case (Best buy,Target) the exclusives have the same UPC as the regular DVD this is the first time I'm getting a exclusive from CC so don't know anything about it but I’ll just have to see.

yah, but the UPC sticker is usually on the case not the slipcover...not that i would ever do anything like returning a DVD sans slipcover.

The way I understood him--Yes, it is just the regular sealed DVD. I would assume the barcode that CC will use will be on the slipcover. The whole thing COULD be shrinkwrapped, too.

That is not always the case. I've see the actual receipts from the major retailers who sell their own exclusives and they will specify if it was an exclusive. I think all the major markets are getting hip to people doing that. Sometimes the UPC sticker may be on the outer wrapping of the item, not the case itself if you know what I mean.

Does the Circuit City exclusive come with the standard slipcover within the oversized slipcover like the Spider-Man 3 Target exclusive?

that is just wrong on 2 levels, 1 is the obvious dupe to the store and the 2nd is why on earth would you want to cover up a SteelBook™ case with a slipcover and if it is for protection, buy a bag!

I don't think I'm "dupeing" the store when all I want is a simple slipcover that cost like twenty cents to make its not I'm keeping the journal or anything just the slipcover. The only reason I'm not keeping the dvd is because I got a good deal at CH which I'm pretty sure will come with a slipcover of its own which I would gladly replace with the CC exclusive but can't because they might think its not there's when I go to return it. There are people on here doing far more worse things to get there hands on just the exclusive from a store and returning the dvd then me who just wants a slipcover. But I'm not going to make a post and be a dick and call them out on because its not my right to each its own. Also you said why don't I use a bag to protect my steelbook its because the bag doesn’t protect the steelbook from getting dents its only good for scratches and since I'm always taking movies to whatch at a friends house a bag just won't cut it. Its amazing to me how you are always the first person to call someone out like your some authority figure I hate when someone does that by trying make someone feel bad and make themselves seem some kind of a saint

I read over on slashfilm that some Best Buy and Circuit City stores are doing a midnight launch. Anyone know if there's a list anywhere of which specific locations will be participating?

EDIT - to answer my own question, here is a list of the Best Buy stores. Anyone know of a CC list anywhere?
