Aren't all Blu-ray cases curved at the corners, though? I mean, it could be, I guess, but there's no way to tell from that low-res pic.

Assuming it's real, I'm in for the steelbook.

I think the DVD with the Batman mask is a fake.

I hope to God the steelbook one is real, though.

I like the one with the mask best. Not so much for the mask itself but for the "Why So Serious" artwork on the DVD case.

There's no way those are real. I don't have a way to point it out right now, but if you look closely at the steelbook and then the Blu-ray next to it you can see that all they did was take the the steelbook, cut off the bottom and tack on the Blu-ray header.

Ain't real. Even part of the steelbook packaging is sticking above the blue header.

The spine is also just a horizontal reflection of the left side of the front artwork. And no spine text? fake-o

Those look really cool, but I'd like to see the "Why so serious?" poster with the Joker behind glass as the cover.

In non-steelbook news, they will also have the following exclusives:

1) Dark Knight 2-Disc DVD w/Motorcycle Replica that IS AVAILABLE for pre-order at the price of 899,00 Kč (or roughly $60USD):

Generally in the past, the cost of shipping from Czech Republic to the US is about $30-$40USD starting, depending on the item.
TWEC stores in US are already taking preorders for their exclusive SteelBook as well.

I hope they use the movie poster artwork with Batman and the burning building in the background as the artwork for the 2 disc special edition.

I HOPE to God this is what they do for the two-disc SE:

Disc 1
- 5.1/DTS tracks
- Zimmer/Howard isolated score with possible commentary
- Nolans/producer commentary
- trailer gallery (all theatrical teasers/trailers; international trailers; exclusive internet trailers)
- TV spot gallery

Disc 2
- extensive documentaries/featurettes on the making of the movie/viral marketing/etc
- tributes to Heath Ledger
- deleted scenes
- outtakes
- design galleries (charaters/props/posters)
- confidential files

I remember Batman was still playing in theaters when it came out on VHS.

In one of the many interviews they did, they both mention a wish to have the score isolated in 5.1 on the Blu-ray release.

I've already abandoned all hope of a commentary track on the DVD.
Hopefully whatever features we get it will be better than what was on the Batman Begins 2-disk.

I had to laugh too..

Warner's half attempt to be consistent on lossless audio IS a joke.

Yeah, I know it's a laugh. I just think TDK's got a phenomenal soundtrack and I think if the WB decides to grow a pair and start using DTS again, TDK would be the prime candidate.

Dark Knight Details
The very first special features announced for the Blu-ray.
by David McCutcheon

September 22, 2008 - You know what you love? The Dark Knight DVD and Blu-ray specs, and that's why we exist: to please you.

According to the PlanetaHD site from Spain, the first details of The Dark Knight's Blu-ray release have emerged from the depths of the Bat Cave. The Two-Disc Special Edition Blu-ray title will be fully supported with a blistering Dolby TrueHD 5.1 soundtrack to keep your ears happy every time the Joker delivers an unforgettable line.

A few special features have even been announced. Take a gander:



"Gotham Discovered: The Creation of a Scene" with Christopher Nolan, detailing every detail about the movie's production

"Batman Unmasked: The Psychology of the Dark Knight" Documentary

"Batman Technology: Gadgets and Tools" Documentary

"The World of Batman Seen Through Real Life Psychotherapy"

6 scenes from the Gotham Cable Premier's newscast, "Tonight in Gotham"

Art galleries centered on the Joker's letters, production stills, posters, and conceptual artwork

Trailers

TV Spots

Stay tuned to IGN DVD for everything Dark Knight. Even the Dark Knight himself would be impressed.

That would be "Gotham Tonight", and I'm glad they're including all of them.

The History Channel played both "Batman Unmasked" and "Batman Technology" a month or two ago. They were both very good (especially "unmasked"). I'm glad they're both being included.

for TrueHD

... aaaaand THAT's how you do a Blu-ray release, WB -- packed to the gills with supplements and sporting a lossless audio track. Thank you!
