The cover art and early specs for the home release of “The Dark Knight” have been posted online, check ’em out below. The December 9th release will come in single-disc DVD, double-disc DVD and Blu-ray editions.
Director Christopher Nolan has confirmed that on the Blu-ray release, the film will swap between a 2.40:1 aspect ratio for scenes shot on 35mm and full sized widescreen 1.78:1 for the IMAX scenes (IMAX is shot in 1.66:1 so a little bit of the top and bottom of the IMAX image will be lost).
The Blu-ray will also include a Gotham Uncovered documentary, featurettes, the Gotham Tonight cable news viral segments, galleries, trailers and TV spots. A limited edition set with Batpod will also be available. Here’s the art including the slipcases for each version:
