It's weird because they haven't even announced it yet here in Mexico. Warner always releases a lot of editions here. For TDKR we had DVD, regular Blu ray combo, steelbook, digibook and the cowl pack. There's no info about this edition.

The left close-up of Heath Joker is among the best I've seen of him. Nice splash of red on the lips and the white make-up covered all over. Looking at the pics again you realise just how young he was. Huge loss.

Well, I just picked this up. Traded in old movies I owned, went from 95 bucks to thirty.

He absolutely made something that will stand the test of time. He made cinematic history. I say that genuinely from the bottom of my heart.

Wonderful words from Mr. Nolan.

I'm still hesitant about buying this. How much new footage is there? Or is it just a few snippets in the doc here and there

For those interested in archival material on Ledger, the New York TImes ran a terrific interview with Ledger back in 2007.

Cheers.

Most places I go to sell my unwanted DVD's the most they pay is 2 bucks a piece, you mean Best Buy pays you more for your DVD's?

I trade my movies into moviestop. I traded a few blurays (TDKR - Parts 1/2, because I have the deluxe edition, & Harry Potter 6). Then a few tv show dvds and got 40 bucks off (they already sold this set at discount price.)

For those of you who have the set would you say it's well wort it over the standard trilogy edition?

I've held out on buying it waiting for this one but i'm not sure in the end if the extra features justify it?

I don't know how much money the standard set was from last year. But it all comes down if you own all the blu rays or not. If you own the blu rays separately, then the special features + the booklet of photos might not be worth it.

I gave my blu rays to my parents lol. I hate the art on them anyway. Ughh.

I don't regret buying the set. It was expensive, but...it's a nice set with cool special features, better art and packaging for the 3 movies + photos from that trilogy book (which I don't own) so I had no problem spending the money.

Having finally got the set, even while owning the previous editions...it's completely worth. My goodness, do I love this set.

The documentary is going to be an annual viewing, no matter what. That's how much I love it. It's informative without being bloated (Rings EE documentaries, I'm looking at you). Just the new behind the scenes footage through out the documentary is the real treat. And yes, Nolan made a mistake with Hathaway's hair for the finished product. My goodness, does she look glorious in the audition footage.

I just love the wide variety of topics of the documentary. It's just fantastic to watch. As was the conversation between Donner and Nolan.

But, the real shock to me was the IMAX sequences for Knight and Rises. When originally announced, I figured I'd look at a few and never return to them. Boy was I wrong. First off, it's fascinating to remember what was lost at the top and bottom of the screen during these sequences when viewing the regular Blu-Ray in comparison to these. You find yourself wonder from edge to edge of the frames, just looking for details all over the place. And even weirder, this featurette plays like a DJ's mix tape of the last two films. A highlight reel of sorts. It's crazy but I've had the boxset for 5 days and I keep coming back to just the IMAX sequences instead of just watching the films. It's crazy.

Here's the other great thing about this set, at least to me. The size of the box is big enough that if/when WB releases another set of these films with remastered video, it is big enough theoretically housed the next set inside this box , if you remove the toys. Might take some figuring out but it can be done. The trilogy box set from last year fits in here perfectly.

That is my plan, moving forward when WB does another edition of these wonderful films.

People, if you love this character and love these films, this set is a no brainer. It just is. It, to me, feels complete, when you take into account ALL of the supplement material, not just the new bonus disc. I rewatched Batman Begins with the PIP function on yesterday and I forgot how much information was in the PIP. Just great stuff.

Get this set, Bat fans.

So is this documentary going to get ripped or do I have to go spend £55 on amazon for this. I'm quite torn.
