Dark Knight DVD & Blu-ray Details

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:
