Is this a double dip or a triple dip? Maybe somewhere in between? You already own all the films in Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight" trilogy. Or maybe you waited and sprung for the "The Dark Knight" Trilogy Limited Edition (lol) Giftset last year. Well, Warner Bros. wants to pry a few more Bat-dollars out of superfans, so they are taking one more crack at the apple...

The studio has announced that on September 24th, you'll be able to own "The Dark Knight" Trilogy: Ulimate Collector's Edition for the low, low retail price of $99.97. (Of course, given how fast Blurays prices drop these days, it will probably be $25 within a month). So what do you get for all that cheddar? Well, the real meat and potatoes comes courtesy of two featurettes, staring with "The Fire Rises: The Creation and Impact of The Dark Knight Trilogy" which gathers up interviews with Guillermo Del Toro, Damon Lindelof, Michael Mann, Richard Roeper and Zack Snyder presumably to talk about how awesome the movies are. And then there's "Christopher Nolan & Richard Donner: A Conversation" which pairs up the Batman and Superman helmers to talk shop.

For those of you with display cases to fill, the boxset will also include Hot Wheels cars Batmobile and Batpod; Mondo art cards of Scarecrow, Joker, Bane, Harvey Dent, and Ra's al Ghul and for your bookshelf, a 48-page hardcover book with pictures from across the entire series.

Are you gonna pick this up? Do people still buy Blurays? Let us know below. [THR]

    This is a waste of money. They shouldve taken notes from the Alien Anthology or Lord of The Rings sets, hell even their own Superman Collection. A book and likely 90 minutes of interviews don't equate to a $ 99 purchase of otherwise previously released material. Why not any deleted scenes or commentary (audio or subtitled), extended storyboard scenes; you know something worth delving into. Fancy packaging and cheap knick knacks is really a slap in the face to the fan base.

    Why do you keep referring to them as DVDs? The source only mentions Blu-ray. Are new DVDs even released anymore?

    Because the author is a pretentious arse who wants us to believe he only watches actual film out of a can, and likes to use the word DVDs generically to drive home this persona as if he can't be bothered to differentiate.

    Wow, Richard Roeper, remember that guy? He seemed mediocre and then the Internet came and we all had to redefine our perception of quality.
