The Dark Night takes the world..!
7-Dec-2008 -

The Dark Knight takes over Blu-Ray
and DVD on December 9th.
Be the first to own the biggest film of 2008 when The Dark Knight
takes the world by storm on Blu-ray and DVD this December 9th
from Warner Home Video.
The highly-anticipated sequel to Batman Begins, the blockbuster
action hit The Dark Knight from acclaimed director Christopher Nolan
has become an instant must-own classic.
The follow-up to Batman Begins, The Dark Knight reunites director
Christopher Nolan and star Christian Bale, who reprises the role of
Batman/Bruce Wayne in his continuing war on crime.
With the help of Lt. Jim Gordon and District Attorney Harvey Dent,
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, who thrusts Gotham
into anarchy and forces Batman closer to crossing the fine line between
hero and vigilante. Heath Ledger stars as archvillain The Joker, and
Aaron Eckhart plays Dent. Maggie Gyllenhaal joins the cast as Rachel
Dawes. Returning from Batman Begins are Gary Oldman as Gordon,
Michael Caine as Alfred and Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox.
The Dark Knight marks the first time that a major feature film has been
shot in part using IMAX® cameras, marking a revolutionary integration
of film formats. The Dark Knight Blu-ray disc takes advantage of the
marriage of IMAX® and 35mm formats by using the hybrid master to
replicate the unique theatrical experience. The IMAX scenes are also
included on the 2-disc Special Edition as bonus materials.
