The Dark Knight: 12-09-08

According to dvd.themanroom.com, "The Dark Knight" DVD is release for December 9, 2008.

Santa Brings The Dark Knight For X-Mas
By George 'El Guapo' Roush on April 17, 2008
A mystery informant located deep within the bowels of Hollywood has given us information on the release date of The Dark Knight DVD and it looks likes it's coming just in time for Christmas.

On December 9th, 2008 expect The Dark Knight to hit store shelves and be a huge seller this holiday season.

And if that isn't enough, Speed Racer will cross the finish line into stores on November 25th, 2008 just in time for Black Friday weekend!!

No Deleted Scenes In Dark Knight DVD
The Dark Knight is getting closer and closer to its release date (you can see my review here) and already we hear some news about the DVD for the film. The folks over at IFMagazine give us the following:

“We know there won’t be any deleted scenes because there never are,” says Roven, noting director Nolan puts everything of importance in the actual movie. “There weren’t any on BATMAN BEGINS and there weren’t any on this one.”

That’s too bad in a way. Aside from the directors commentary, deleted scenes are my favorite features of a DVD. Not just because I get to see extra stuff… but rather I get to see and understand the mind of a director a little bit more when and why they decide certain things need to go and how those little decisions can alter the entire feel of a film.

In this case specifically the film could have used a little editing. My one and only complaint about Dark Knight is that it’s too long for the movie that it is. But that’s just me.

As someone that dreads the modern movie-going experience, I'm loving these quick release windows. Bring it on!

I'm envisioning a Spaceballs type future where we get the DVD before they're done filming...

I was reading an interview with Christopher Nolan in which he was talking about the potential for the Blu-Ray release of this. Since certain scenes were actually filmed using an IMAX camera, which he said has a 2:4 aspect ratio, and the rest of the movie has a 16:9 aspect ratio, the Blu-Ray technology will actually allow it to be displayed this way on the Blu-Ray disc, with the aspect ratio shifting as it will when viewed on the IMAX screen. Kind of neat.

Why am I not surprised that this movie, of all movies, has a rumored DVD release date before it's even released in theaters?

5 months? They announced it early, they're not releasing it early.

Pushing the release date that far will only fuel more bootlegging.

It's not the first. I can remember something have a firm release date right before it hit screens. Maybe Pirates 3? I don't remember.

Would be interesting to see this.

The IMAX prologue looks incredible on the Batman Begins Blu-ray, so I can't wait for The Dark Knight.

The lack of deleted scenes sucks, but hopefully Nolan does a commentary this time around.

A pre-Christmas release for a major summer superhero blockbuster? Who'd a-thunk it?!

Why is a shifting aspect ratio a good thing?

Personally, I can't wait to see the cover art for The Caped Crusader in 2011.

Technically, when it's on Blu-ray, it won't be in it's OAR anyway.

The OAR for the IMAX footage is 1.34:1.
The OAR for the 35mm footage is 2.40:1.

Someone in the thread on Movie Talk asked Nolan about the situation and Nolan has already confirmed the IMAX footage will be in 1.78:1 on the Blu-ray.
