The Dark Knight Trilogy: Ultimate Collector's Edition Blu-ray

Posted July 2, 2013 10:47 PM by Webmaster

Warner 90th AnniversaryWarner Bros. Home Entertainment has officially detailed the Blu-ray release of The Dark Knight Trilogy: Ultimate Collector's Edition, which features filmmaker Christopher Nolan's Batman Begins, The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises, along with new featurettes and exclusive collectibles. The 6-disc collection arrives on September 24th.

Batman Begins Synopsis: Batman Begins explores the origins of the Batman legend and the Dark Knight's emergence as a force for good in Gotham. In the wake of his parents' murder, disillusioned industrial heir Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale) travels the world seeking the means to fight injustice and turn fear against those who prey on the fearful. He returns to Gotham and unveils his alter-ego: Batman, a masked crusader who uses his strength, intellect and an array of high tech deceptions to fight the sinister forces that threaten the city.

The Dark Knight Synopsis: Bale reprises the role of Bruce Wayne in his continuing war on crime. With the help of Lt. Jim Gordon (Gary Oldman) and District Attorney Harvey Dent (Aaron Eckhart), Batman sets out to destroy organized crime in Gotham for good. The triumvirate proves effective, but soon find themselves prey to a rising criminal mastermind known as The Joker (Heath Ledger), who thrusts Gotham into anarchy and forces Batman closer to crossing the fine line between hero and vigilante. Maggie Gyllenhaal replaces Katie Holmes as Rachel Dawes. Also returning are Michael Caine as Alfred and Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox.

The Dark Knight Rises Synopsis: It has been eight years since Batman vanished into the night, turning, in that instant, from hero to fugitive. Assuming the blame for the fate of D.A. Harvey Dent, the Dark Knight sacrificed everything for what he and Commissioner Gordon both hoped was the greater good. For a time the lie worked, as criminal activity in Gotham City was crushed under the weight of the anti-crime Dent Act. But everything changes with the arrival of a cunning cat burglar (Anne Hathaway) and a masked terrorist named Bane (Tom Hardy), a man whose ruthless plans for Gotham lure Bruce out of his self-imposed exile.

Tech specs have yet to be detailed. All previously released special features are included, as well as two new exclusive featurettes. The 6-disc set breaks down as follows:

    Disc 1 Batman Begins Feature Film and Special Features
    Disc 2 The Dark Knight Feature Film
    Disc 3 The Dark Knight Special Features
    Disc 4 The Dark Knight Rises Feature Film
    Disc 5 The Dark Knight Rises Special Features
    Disc 6 Bonus Disc of New Special Features:

    • The Fire Rises: The Creation and Impact of The Dark Knight Trilogy - The inside perspective on the fascinating story behind the creation of one of the most celebrated franchises and how it changed the scope of movie making forever. Full of never-before-seen footage, rare moments, and exclusive interviews with Guillermo Del Toro, Damon Lindelof, Michael Mann, Richard Roeper, Zack Snyder and others.


    • Christopher Nolan & Richard Donner: A Conversation - For the first time, directors Christopher Nolan and Richard Donner (Superman: The Movie) sit down to discuss the trials and triumphs involved in bringing the two most iconic superheroes of all time to the big screen, and how Superman influenced Nolan when developing Batman Begins.


    Exclusive Memorabilia includes:

    • Premium Mattel Hot Wheels Vehicles: Batmobile, Batpod and Tumbler
    • 48-page hardcover book featuring production stills and behind the scenes images from the trilogy
    • Newly commissioned collectible art cards by Mondo featuring Scarecrow, Joker, Bane, Harvey Dent, and Ra's al Ghul

Why do movies with great transfers get new, even better transfers but the first two in this trilogy can't? Sure, they're not Casablanca or The Wizars of Oz but they are among the best selling Blu-ray Discs and have fans loyal enough to keep double dipping.

The new special features would be nice to see but I agree with everyone else. That's not good enough. Like I said, Batman Begins and The Dark Knight are among the best selling BD's on the market, therefore practically everyone already owns them and they're already sold individually for really cheap most of the time. That makes it hard to get a decent amount if we have to sell the copies we already have, online.

2 new special features and some swag? Sorry. But that isn't enough to justify the time and money we would be losing trying to sell off our old copies. I can't even be bothered with re-buying these movies until the first two get a new transfer. So, so slack.

Note the disc breakdown. Batman Begins and its special features are on 1 disc, not 2. All previous special features are confirmed to be included. If it were a remastered presentation, chances are its features would be on a second disc like the other 2 films. And if Batman Begins isn't remastered, chances are Dark Knight isn't either. As is, it looks very much like a bundle of the previous 5 Blu-ray discs with a bonus Blu-ray, UCE packaging and collectibles.

The only thing that interests me about this set so far is the bonus disc. I think I'm a little too old to collect Hot Wheels Batman toys. If all of the other discs are just re-presses with the same transfers, then this set isn't worth it. Only if there's a glimpse of new transfers, then I'll start taking a look into it.

The artcards and book from this set interest me, but I would like to see a much more substantial set of new on-disc extras (the two described above don't seem to be enough), especially for an "Ultimate Collector's Edition." A remastering of the first two films in the trilogy would also have been very nice.

As it stands, I would buy this set only with a very steep price drop (and that's only a maybe) especially since I own the steelbooks and other versions of all three films individually.

I just emailed several people from WB about the lack of new transfers. I expressed my disappointment with this supposed "Ultimate" set. I got the email addresses by doing a Google search for "WB contact us." I don't expect anything from it, not even a response, but if they are going to give the fans what we want, you have to start by telling them.

Network23, much has been written about the deficiencies with the Dark Knight transfer. The Batman Begins blu-ray is actually inferior to the HD-DVD. This trilogy has made almost 3 billion dollars worldwide. These beloved films should have pristine picture and sound. WB teased this "Ultimate" set last year. Hot Wheels, postcards and three documentaries don't excite me. This set isn't worth $10, much less $100. If WB shelled out for the new transfers, I'd have paid $200 for it. However, as usual, they recycle the same old discs with garbage no one wants (Blade Runner, The Exorcist, Citizen Kane, etc). They will stop doing this if people start demanding better.

@buck135,

Considering how many times they've remastered Wizard of Oz and Gone with the Wind, do you really think WB won't remaster Batman Begins and the Dark Knight some time in the future?

Of course they will. It'll just take an anniversary to do it. 10 maybe 20 years from now, those first two films will get remastered. Disappointment that it's not here now but this idea that WB won't ever go back to those films is ridiculous.

How many times has the Wizard of Oz been re-released over the years?

I'm with Network23. I see absolutely nothing wrong with the presentation for Begins or TDK, and honestly feel they're some of the best out there and are demo worthy. Heck, both Begins and the TDK prologue were being used as demos at the time of buying my first Blu player! I've seen those maybe a dozen times while walking around Circuit City. Anyway, I'm disappointed with the lack of extras just as much as everyone. I was hoping for extended cuts, deleted scenes, more featurettes, commentaries -- but nothing. I already have the first two, so I'll just buy TDKR when it inevitably reaches 5 bucks like TDK did within its first year and my collection will be complete. Maybe I'll find the new extras on Youtube or something.

Jumpman, I don't understand your point. If they would just release the film the best possible way the first time, there would be no reason to double, triple, quadruple dip every five years. I don't want to wait until the 25th anniversary of Batman Begins to get a proper remaster. I'll probably be dead by then. With all of this streaming nonsense the studios are desperate to adopt, I would very much like to have the very best versions of the films I enjoy before the format ceases to exist. Again, these films made billions of dollars. They are beautiful films that look subpar on blu-ray in comparison with the majority of other big budget films. What is the point of releasing the trilogy in December of 2012, then an "Ultimate" edition consisting of Happy Meal toys less than a year later with the same discs?

I specifically skipped buying Rises because I was waiting for this set. When they said "Ultimate Set" I figured it would be a bunch of all new special features. I have to admit, I'm a little let down by what's listed here. (I don't have the same concerns about remasters as most people do. I thought they looked great on my friend's 100" projector.) I'll probably pick up the set given that I still need to add Rises to my collection, and the Donner/Nolan conversation could be awesome. Definitely disappointed in the meat of this set and the lack of new materials though.

I agree, I'm more interested in the actual movies than extras and swag, and both Begins and DK deserve better than what's currently available: Begins was mastered when WB was still filtering their masters to help improve consistency with their dvd product, as the extra detail was lost in downconversion and they realized long ago that grain just didn't transfer well to such a lossy medium. As has been widely reported they botched DK by unnecessarily downconverting the 70mm photography to 35mm when they mastered it. Aside from it being a very deleterious process, that wasn't even done optimally, either the process created ringing itself - which is a common byproduct of the scaling algorithms used in yesteryear - or edge enhancement was added to try to make up for some of the lost detail.

That's not to say that Begins and DK don't still look very good, especially by dvd standards. But there's a great deal of room for improvement with both. In the case of Begins, potentially more room than there was between Sony's first Fifth Element BD and their remastered edition.

Obviously some fans are satisified with them, but that doesn't change that it can be proven they're not nearly as good as they could be and these are the kind of sellers that studios can justify sinking a little more money into. It does us little good if they wait 10 years to do so, if there isn't a format around at that time that we can actually own. They've had 8 years to remaster Begins and 5 years for DK, both of which they are well aware warrant such by consumer outcry alone. So, if these are not remastered editions, it's understandable why many would consider it more of a let down as this was potentially our last hope for optimal editions on BD.

I was hoping the would redo the fist movie's disc and spread it over 2 discs. Because that disc looks completely out of date, and none of the extras are in HD.

It would also be nice to get the real trailers for Begins, and unedited trailers for The Dark Knight. But that's lest of a concern these days.

I'll only double dip on these films and get this set if Batman Begins and The Dark Knight are remastered.

Batman Begin's current Blu-Ray transfer has a rubbish encoding, DNR and weak black levels.

The Dark Knight's current Blu-Ray transfer has heavy Edge Enhancement, DNR & Contrast Boosting. The films colour timing has also been heavily altered. In short, the transfer's a disaster.

Really happy to read that practically EVERYONE feels the same way. Any re-releases that include the first two films are pointless until they're remastered. Would the new special features be nice to see? Eh, maybe. I'm glad everyone is sticking to their principles that we've payed enough already and been treated like idiots by WB. No more. No more until two of THE greatest selling BD's get remastered.

I'm willing to bet that it'll happen eventually. The studio would be aware of this problem and can certainly afford to fix it which is why they released TDKR individually, then the trilogy box set and now the ultimate trilogy which is just recycled discs and a couple new featurettes. They're milking the weaklings until nobody is willing to pay for these recycled re-releases.

If you want remastered transfers of the first two movies, stick to your principles. Continue being aggressively vocal about your outrage and desire and refuse to pay until it happens. This is how you get things like this done, people. With enough refusal and demand, it'll happen faster.

I was awaiting to see what kind of announcement was going to be made with the "Ultimate" trilogy. Much like everyone on this board has hoped that we were going to get re-mastered of the first 2 movies at least, I'm going to wait till the final say on the review of the video/audio before making a decision on purchase.

The original review for Batman Begins was given 3.5 for video 4.0 for audio and Dark Knight was 5 on both sides.. However apparently the color timing on Dark Knight was altered completely when it was being mastered for home video. If these issues were corrected then I'd be onboard.

The wishful thinker in me says that even with special features sharing space on one disc, Batman Begins has around 15 GB of space left over on its first pressing, and The Dark Knight has around 10 GB of space left on its first pressing, meaning there's still a chance for better encode with higher bit rates on those movies this time around, but the realist in me knows that Warner Bros. is the King of Double Dips, with Anniversary Editions of Goodfellas, Unforgiven, and Blade Runner just being recycled versions of their first pressings, so I won't hold my breath on this and just wait and see what comes.

This just means we have to wait even longer for a set with some proper extras. Warner will do it again. I'm 97% sure they will.

I am not going to purchase the set.

I think Warner will just repackage the current discs. The sixth disc with the new extras isn't enough to get me to buy it.

If they were re-mastered and contained a seamless branching option to view the constant aspect ratio versions of DK and DKR, I'd be all in. But I can't watch them at all on my 2.37:1 screen. I still haven't seen DKR because of this.

I'll stick with my three steelbooks.

I think it's a beautiful box set, but I will stick to my Steelbook box from Germany... it's so elegant, with that hard box, 3 steels and the book, one of the best import I have, love it!

Truly disappointing...three hot wheel vehicles, five photos, and a book - I don't think so. The iconic disc insert holder of Heath Ledger is a nice touch, but in no way justifies the ridiculous price. Is this the same booklet that was included in the trilogy set last year?

I don't see what all the guff is about. They announced when the Trilogy came out that there would be an Ultimate Collector's edition this year. Go back and check the news from this site. That's the whole reason I held off buying one of my favorite trilogies of all time. Picking this up if the price is right.

I'll wait for the 4K remasters. Don't need a 4K TV but 4K remasters look great it's all about the color and detail. 4K TV just lets you watch it closer... The Bat Pod is the wrong color. It's black in the movies...

If you don't own them already then it looks like a great set to buy. But to me it's not worth a double dip as I have all three in SB format.

If they aren't remastered and the extras aren't substantial I can't see the point of a double dip. If they have been remastered (1+2) and both docs are substantial then I would look to buy them once they drop in price. The cars and postcards don't interest me though.

TDKR was a mess compared to TDK. ADD plot.

Already own the previous versions and since Warner was keen on including very few in terms of new stuff and absolutely nothing about the behind the scenes (come on Warner, after all the money it's made, you owe us more than that), then I'll stick with what I already own. Even if the first two are remastered, and since it's not mentioned, then it's almost certain they aren't.

Quite a letdown lukewarm idea. To say some fans have waited months for such a disappointment, I'm sad for them.

Definitely disappointed.

Reflexively ordered this UCE with 1-Click as soon as I saw it, but then moved it to my Wish List after learning how lean this release actually is. And don't like the white box design either. Why white?? I bought the standard releases before because I knew this UCE was coming. Now I wish I'd bought the steelbook editions instead.

I'm in the minority of collectors who actually likes the swag in addition to the bonus content like commentaries and featurettes, but I'll wait for the price to drop way down before seriously considering picking this up.

Why can't they ever get a Deluxe set right. All I want is hard-cases for the discs (maybe include the Steelbooks) and Extended version of the Dark Knight Rises w/ the Bane Origins scene put back in.

I held off on buying Dark Knight Rises because of the rumors of this UCE set. I have to admit, this set is extremely disappointing! Guess I'll save some cash and go buy the single DKR to add to BB and TDK.
