Second ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ Blu-ray Trailer

This 90-second video highlights some of the special features included on the highly-anticipated Blu-ray and DVD release, debuting December 4th.

Last month, Warner Home Video unleashed a trailer for The Dark Knight Rises' Blu-ray and DVD release December 4. Today, the studio has released a new 90-second trailer, highlighting some of the special features found on this highly-anticipated title. Check out the latest video for what will surely be one of the hottest gift items this holiday season, then read on for the full Blu-ray and DVD special features details.

It has been eight years since Batman vanished into the night, turning, in that instant, from hero to fugitive. Assuming the blame for the death 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 will change with the arrival of a cunning cat burglar with a mysterious agenda. Far more dangerous, however, is the emergence of Bane, a masked terrorist whose ruthless plans for Gotham drive Bruce out of his self-imposed exile. But even if he dons the cape and cowl again, Batman may be no match for Bane.

    @alan Solares
    sorry man I gotta disagree with ya since Ive stuck with Spider-Man since day 1
    Ive seen lots of trilogies, they're all good but Nolan's Batman still has flaws to me: 1 should have had more action and more well-known villains, 2 was great but it pissed me off that they killed Rachel and I hated the ending, and 3 was only the best one, I had no problems whatsoever

    Sam Raimi's Spider-Man was the worst trilogy ever! Part 1 was alright, second one was better, but the third was disappointing. At least all Christopher Nolan's Batman films were better than average. @jonspidey07

    Are people still fighting over which film is better? Really? Don't you people have better things to do then spew your hate for one movie or the other. I've already voiced my opinion of each film and which is better in my review of The Dark Knight Rises. If you want to know what it is go there.

    Am I going to buy the Dark Knight Rises DVD probably not. I work what amounts to basically a minimum wage job and don't have the money to buy everything I want, and I didn't buy the Avengers DVD either.

    Again let it go. Move on with your lives and let it go.

    Agreed. I don't. But by simple math, as long as Avengers has been out and as much hype as it had from it's theatrical release and even leading up to the blu-ray and dvd release, all the sales it's already tracked... I don't think it's a stretch to say by years end it'll still have out paced The Dark Knight Rises.

    I mean I'm not saying it's a complete and sure thing cause anything can happen, but these things tend to be pretty consistent

    @themoviefanatic But at least the entire movie wasn't all CGI. What Chris Nolon likes to do is all realism, but CGI only comes in when its necessary.

    @roberto Mata
    I hate to disagree with ya but this is not the best trilogy IMO
    there are plenty of other movie series that people think are the best
    for me, it will always be Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy

  12. JonSpidey07

    this is still my #1 film of 2012 even though most people say 2 was superior
    this one gave me what I wanted; to watch a fitting conclusion to this trilogy, had a blast watching Bane, Catwoman was a lot of fun, the action scenes rocked and the plot twists I thought were very well executed
    if they're gonna do a Robin movie then ok

    I know one buddy of mine liked it the least in the trilogy and I can respect that, we both have certain preferences and tastes
    plus I dont read comic books, I just watch the movies which is fine with me since Im more of a visual guy
    again I still think this film was the best of this rebooted series and we can forget what Schulmacher did to us all
    cant wait to get this Blu-Ray as an early X-Mas gift :)

    Further more, Chris Nolan is a good director but where he fails to rise to the challenge is in creating good engrossing satisfying action...

    I liked it, but in the same way I liked Transformers, I knew what I was getting and overall the product at large is good but there are too many flaws I can't ignore so while I enjoyed it, I know it's not the great masterpiece many have been proclaiming it to be.

    I would have respected the work more. I saw it twice, and found major flaws in the story, characters and even time and scene jumps, that made no's still by and large a grand film and I like that Nolan sticks to his guns regarding the larger themes at play, but good intentions and a good story don't make a good movie. A great batman movie requires the story, action, and logic to all come together in my opinion. none of the major decisions and actions any of the major characters made in it, made any sense.

    Jim Gordon: Sends almost every single police officer in Gotham underground... - do I need to say more here?

    Robin: Apparently takes a wild guess Bruce is Batman and Bruce just basically goes 'You caught me', to a total stranger at the time.

    Bane oh Bane: I feel he was written almost more brilliantly than Joker until half way through the movie, very brilliant mind and tons of muscle. He beats Batman, puts him out of commission, he and Talia have the means to destroy gotham, then they just sit and wait for 5 months....
    - Leaves Batman alive in the pit, the one man he knows had the capability to find a way out of that pit, having been a member of the League of Shadows, it's the worst version of a villain's mistake I've ever witnessed.
    - So Bats heals up, returns, they are surprised, but they still don't detonate the bomb right away though they show that they are willing to die for the cause the whole time.

    Batman, returns and somehow Bruce Wayne is back, no one bats an eyelash at this, Bane's goons bring in Bruce Wayne, when Bane and Talia have already revealed to them that he is batman, Bane flat out called him by name right before the first fight... But no, they bring him in, and let him roam free.

    He finds time to go climb the bridge and lace it with fuel large enough for the biggest bat signal ever
    Robin lifts a manhole(a friggin manhole) by himself and quietly tries to help his fellow offices out only to be discovered by the random right place right time villains... batman saves him, batman proceeds to blow a giant hole in the debris from previous explosions... at night, and no one else comes to check what happened here

    (God only knows how a guy with no ID, passport, money of any kind) left a prison half way around the world and made it to gotham in a week, I know he's a ninja so sneaking into gotham would be easy but the rest... come on... lol

    ***The other major problem with TDKR was this^^^*** the 'because he's Batman defense.

    The cops(over a thousand of them) line up in the streets like it's a gangs of new york showdown about to go down, advance on trained thugs armed with fully automatic assault rifles, who subsequently fail to hit more than what seemed to be about 6 or 7 of them

    At this point it seems almost everyone has figured out Bruce is Batman, but Jim Gordon....

    Batman fights bane for a second time, lands a few punches on Bane's mask and damages it... now interesting to note is he landed more than a few hookes to the very same mask in the first fight and this did not happen

    Back to Talia, she reveals who she is, has Batman dead to rights, then proceeds to monologue... giving them more time to find the bomb
    - Sidebar: Best thing about Joker, he didn't monologue before winning. He simply explained why he had already won.

    DId I mention the horrible edit where Talia and Jim and the cops get caught tracking the trucks, get taken to the court and sentenced, and bane pulls talia away, get's her back to the other hostages... then brue get's brought in by Catwoman, tells talia he'll come back for her.. leaves, goes and saves gordon from the icy death, then proceeds to ask Gordon who was not there... where Talia is? yeahhhhh that happened

    @andrew-smith-28336544 You do realize that there were some things in The Dark Knight Rises, that were computer generated in it don't you? The Avengers ws not the only movie that had things that were computer generated in it.

  17. Youngrizo

    However when I made my original comment I was actually referring to The Avengers sell through on blu-ray. When they call these things an event, they are always referring to them in terms of how big they are, and flatly, Avengers beat TDKR on athat front.

    3 years agoby @youngrizoFlag

  18. Youngrizo


    Avengers had a few things TDKR didn't

    Consistent writing
    More consistent logic
    Better editing
    Better action
    More engrossing Dialogue(Melodrama does not automatically make for engrossing dialogue)
    More sensible characters
    And a better overall use of cast

    @youngrizo Really? You think The Avengers was better? The only thing that was good was the action at the end of the movie. The story was lame and not enough action to enjoy it. I can't understand why they had to introduce everybody when we already know what Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, Captain America, and Black Widow are capable of. The only one who needed a introduction was Hawkeye cause he doesn't have his own movie. You have to admit The Dark Knight Rises has a better story, better villain and better action cause the action wasn't all computer generated.

    If this movie would've actually been good like the previous 2, then maybe id consider this. Instead, it was a rushed filler movie just made for the sake of saying "Im done making these movies"
