Anticipation is on the Rise for the Home Theater Release of Batman: the Dark Knight Rises

Home theater and comic book fans rejoice! Batman: The Dark Knight Rises is set to appear on DVD/Blu-Ray format Tuesday, December 4, 2012. The third and final movie in Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy will be available in a variety of formats including a Blu-Ray/DVD Combo Pack, DVD only single pack and a collector’s edition that includes a Batman Cowl. This collection is sure to be on the Christmas List of many home theater enthusiasts and a welcome addition to any home video library.

The Caped Crusader has been the subject of many movies over the years, and best-to-worst lists are as numerous as Batman fans. Ranker.com has a comprehensive list that includes both live action and animated movies taken from fan surveys. Bryan Lomax also has a great list on IMDB, the Internet Movie Database. These movies do not just appeal to comic book fans, as the innovative sound design and cinematography also makes them a favorite with home theater owners. Many of the Batman movies bear this out with multiple Oscar nominations, and some have even taken home the little golden statue. Tim Burton’s original Batman (1989) took home the Oscar for Best Art Direction, and Batman: The Dark Knight (2008) won Oscars for Sound Editing and Best Supporting Actor (for Heath Ledger’s brilliant portrayal of the Joker).

Whether you have your very own customized Bat Cave Home Theater, or just enjoy watching movies in the family room, the home video release of Batman: The Dark Knight Rises is sure to be welcome news this holiday season.
