Though "Interstellar" is still over a year away from hitting theaters, for Christopher Nolan fans looking for a fix, the forthcoming "The Dark Knight Trilogy: Ultimate Collector's Edition" will have plenty to dig into. More than just a box throwing together the three Batman movies, it's coming with a boatload of extra material, some of which is now making its way online.

Though "Interstellar" is still over a year away from hitting theaters, for Christopher Nolan fans looking for a fix, the forthcoming "The Dark Knight Trilogy: Ultimate Collector's Edition" will have plenty to dig into. More than just a box throwing together the three Batman movies, it's coming with a boatload of extra material, some of which is now making its way online.

Perhaps the most enticing is a look at Christian Bale's audition reel for the role, one that finds him saying his lines opposite future "The Fighter" co-star Amy Adams, and wearing Val Kilmer's Batsuit as well. As you can see, from the start he looked right at home in the cape and cowl. Next up is another brief clip with Nolan discussing the heightened reality of his films, one that's just stylized enough that audiences can enjoy the experience without being overtaken by the serious nature of the subject matter.

Check out both below and for a bonus, hit EW to watch another segment about Nolan's pitch to do the franchise in the first place. "The Dark Knight Trilogy" box is in stores on Tuesday. [Batman News/USA Today]
