The Dark Knight is on for December 9 and a Bat-Pod display stand will come with a limited edition Blu-ray set.
will this movie be in fullscreen or with the blackbars
it depends on what frame format it was shot in, either way it will be the closest you can get to seeing it in the theater without actually going.
Normally it reads whatever your TV size is and fits it to that. Be it full or wide. However that all depends on the age of your TV i.e. over a few years it will probably have black bars. If you have an HD TV though it will size itself to fit your screen properly.
Yeah, it depends on which format it was shot in. For example the Imax preview of The Dark Knight which was on the Batman Begins Blu Ray, was full screen. Hopefully The Dark Knight will also be in this Imax format, as it looked much much better than with the black bars. I would even go as far to say it looked crisper on my TV than in the cinema. The picture was grainy and blurry at the cinema.
blow that bluray up to the size of a theater screen and the image would become a little soft too. That's just physics, at that screen size a pixel is probably the size of the tip of your thumb. QuadHD would be a more appropriate resolution for cinema.
Well it says 2.4:1 ratio so expect pretty hefty black bars
Very nice liking the batpod not so sure about the case tho. i like uniformity so the case would be awkward next to my other blurays
The cover front cover suks and the bike is stupid good thing the movie is amazing
I can't wait for Dark Knight to to come to Blu-ray. As soon as it's avaliable on Amazon.com for pre-order, I'm pre-ordering it. Not quite sure if I'm getting the Limited Edition yet though (depends on the price).
joker's gonna be 100X freakier on blu-ray.
(Please Note: This Blu-ray will not work in a xBox 360!!!) ;-D
Yeah it only plays out of Date SD:DVD's.
;-D ;-D ;-D ;-D ;-D ;-D ;-D ;-D ;-D ;-D ;-D ;-D ;-D ;-D ;-D ;-D And they call the xBox 360 a Next-gen Console!?!? ;-D
Man this movie will sell alot on blu ray.
m saving myself for it. i didn't see the movie in the theaters so this will be a great purchase
HD-DVD is dead cause that would have been anothr massive flame war filled with xbots lying their asses off about how much better the HD-DVD version is to bluray. Kinda like they do with multiplatform games. sorry xbots only little kids like yourselves buy into your crap anymore.
hahaha couldn't agree more. Sony won the format war xbutts. Now it's on to the console war.
I waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaant. x-x
i waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaant too!!
I don't buy many DVD's, let alone Blu Rays. This is a definite purchase for me though, just like Batman Begins on Blu Ray was. Can't wait!
I have Batman begins on Bluray and I still pop it in from time to time. I wonder if this is based on Batman:Year One, it's a 15 year old adult comic that came out a couple of years after Frank Miller and the Dark Knight craze. Man there was SUCH GOOD writing back then. It took long enough for Hollywood to catch on and dump all those hack hollywood writers who have been feeding the public rehashed unoriginal crap for years. Alot of you kids didn't get to experience the second golden age of comics in the mid to late 80's cause you were either just born or still crappin your diapers. I suggest you go read on Alan Moore and The Watchmen. That's the next blockbuster coming to the screen and many of you will LOVEEEEEE the character of Rorschach. Watchmen makes Dark Knight look like a Sunday school story.
My most watched film of all time is Terminater 2, but, Batman Begins is certainly catching up! I've watched the Blu Ray half a dozen times already, and I'm still seeing new things. I have the Year One comic, that's an awesome piece of work. The one thing that strikes me as a link to "Begins" is the coat Bruce wears when he leaves Falcone's bar, that green army style jacket. That was pretty much the same coat as Bruce wore in Year One when he was a vigilante learning the trade.
I've allready watched a dvd rip from internet great copy no piont of getting a blu-ray version waste of money poor poor driods
I see that all the A-holes from sony camp are banned into the open zone hahaha don't let my comment interrupt your circle jerk session :)
oh no no no youre just in time for the climax and guess whose the b!tch. :)
After seeing that full-screen The Dark Knight Prologue in Batman Begins Blu-ray, I'm seriously wishing they will use that in this TDK blu-ray.
while your watching movies were gonna be playign games. besides 40 bucks is alot for soemthign you will watch once or twice ya think?
xbox 360 owners don't watch movies. i am sure you guys rent movies or buy movies along with the rest of the world. So while you watch your dvd at that time, we watch our blu-ray movies, and guess what we can also play games on our system with out changing the input.::gasp::
they just release the Limited Edition on one single 50GB BluRay? Unless even the non-limited edition already utilizes the full 50GB.
SICK!!! I'm so getting this.
