That's hilarious. I'm not really a big "picture" guy yet I can't stand pan and scan. It's awful.

Thanks for the news above on Target's bonus set, I'm glad those extras are available to us DVDers after all.

She continued on and on saying about her son is really into film and has a huge collection of DVDs.

Finally, she decided to go with the Bat-Mask packaging that I suggested, and it sounded like the right choice seeing as he was such a collector. While she was walking away she stopped and turned real quick to me as if she forgot to ask about something and sure enough she asks:

"Is this Widescreen?" And I said, yes ma'am, dont you worry you have the right one..." and she goes..."No no no no... my son buys Full-frame only... he hates the black bars."

She then grabbed the single disc full frame DVD.

Ha, that was pretty funny. Her son must be 5.

To anyone that hasn't gotten it yet- The FYE Steelbook looks awesome. And Best Buy having them is a big YMMV as mine didn't.

Man, some of you guys must be hardcore Batman collectors..getting different versions etc. It doesn't bother me, as I'm a collector of a certain movie genre(giant monsters). I'll be getting just the standard BD later today, along with with LOST at Best Buy. Hope you guys are having fun!!!

I got the Best Buy Clown Mask version and the FYE Steelbook. I am contemplating the Target version, only for the exclusive disc. Does anyone have a final price on that one?

If anyone doesn't want the regular slipcover from the 2-disc and would be willing to sell it, PM me.

If you have the Blu-Ray already, there's no point to get the extra disc, it's just the History Channel documentary. If you don't have Blu-Ray, ignore this message.

I see people posting about a rebate with the FYE steelbook. Is this something that's attached to the actual DVD? I don't have an FYE nearby and am wondering if I'll still be able to get the rebate if I order the steelbook online.

I went to Best Buy at midnight to get my copy. Got my Joker card they were gone within the first minute of letting people in. I stood in a short line to grab my BD and then I was gonna get the Joker figurine for $9.99 but the guy in front of me got the last one, but it looked really dinky. So I'm kinda glad I didn't get it. I stopped by Blockbuster Video and grabbed a Joker bobblehead which I think is cooler than the dinky figurine Best Buy had.

It's a print out that comes out with the receipt.

I pre-ordered(with store pick up) the blu with batman mask and am glad I did cause all the blu gift sets were sold out from the midnight release. I wish I had gone now as I like that shirt they gave out.

Would it have killed them to include some kind of documentary/featurette on Heath Ledger and his iconic performance as Joker?
Some behind-the-scenes footage, rehearsals, and interviews would have been awesome.
I am baffled by the omission of content on such an important part of the film.

...and to head of some arguments, NO it would NOT have been "cashing in" on his death - it would have been a tribute to the man and his brilliant work in this film.

I'm still wondering if there ever will be any good making-of docs for this film. The features on the DVD aren't heavy on this info I assume. The ones by WB that is...BB had some cool ones. I loved the Batmobile one...

This Gotham uncovered doc on the BD how long is that? Seems like the 2 disc DVD doesn't have that. I only have the single disc atm, which is featureless. Haven't gone into my BD TDK yet..

Well, I'm sure that something along those lines will be included on the next release, whenever that arrives. Ledger will almost certainly be nominated and quite possibly win the Best Actor Oscar. It makes sense that WB would wait to see how that plays out before putting together any sort of featurette or tribute to him.

WB double dip? Nah..they'd never do that!

That's kind of what I'm figuring - holding out for another edition later on.

Even if they're waiting for post-Oscars, though, it's baffling to have NOTHING related to Ledger's Joker. Alive or dead, he's a major part of the film.

I read somewhere that past digital copies from other WB titles could not be viewed on anything other than Windows Media Player. I see that in the directions, it points Mac users to iTunes to download the free digital copy, but not for Windows.

I guess my question is, will I be able to view my digital copy on my iPod through iTunes?

I didn't see the TDK in IMAX so I'm wondering how these scenes on DVD compare to the "normal" scenes? Which looks better on the smaller tv screen?

From what has been posted about the transfer not being all that good on the dvd that could be made better for the next release. Along with more docs.
Remember there is a BATMAN 3 on it's way and that would be reason enough to make a DARK KNIGHT double dip.

I can't speak for the Dark Knight DVD (at work haven't been able to try it), but I can say that the Sex and the City DVD did work for iPod/iTunes. My Dark City: Director's Cut was not compatible and it made no mention of iTunes.
