We expect a more formal announcement to arrive soon, but in the meantime Warner Bros. dropped what appears to be a new Blu-ray/DVD trailer for The Dark Knight Rises onto YouTube, and in the copy below the trailer there's a line that reads "Own it on Blu-ray Combo Pack or Digital Download 12/3." Yup, as expected, The Dark Knight Rises will arrive on shelves just in time for the holiday season, minus (most likely) that director's cut everyone was so hoping for.
So what will be on the Blu-ray/DVD, and will some sort of wicked collector's box set with all three films hit on the same day? That we don't know. There's no doubt Warner Bros. will do something cool with all three films -- and you'd think they'd want to release a Dark Knight box set for the holiday rush -- but so far all we have to go on is the release date for The Dark Knight Rises, which we should note is a Monday, and not the traditional Tuesday. Should more info hit soon, we'll update this post.
For now, though, circle December 3 on your calendar. [via CBM]
