That Steelbook DVD version is looking pretty slick!

Well, I think that's a bit of an exaggeration. Perhaps that's true for movies that didn't do to well, but movies like Iron Man and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull are only just getting their DVD releases next month and they both began back in May (on opposite ends). Hell, I don't think we heard any DVD information for either until last month with the San Diego Comic-Con.

Please no. The movie was a little fat in places as it was. No need for further scenes. I would be happy to have another Nolan commentary (his are usually quite interesting, although I confess I haven't heard the track on Batman Begins, if there is indeed one).

Re: The Dark Knight - Grading & Discussion

I would love extra scenes. It's a DVD, you can watch at your own pace. Long ass movies only get annoying to me if they suck or at the theater. The last lord of the rings movie is a good example. Good movie but it had like three endings, fucking ridiculous. How ever watching it at home on DVD was fine, I even liked the extras on and all that stuff.

Also for the amount you pay for these things its only right that they give you something extra and it makes it worth getting a DVD rather than trying to find a "good" torrent.

That's how I felt about the extended The Stand, but I knew 50 people who loved it.

In other words, you don't have to watch the extended cut - but I want it.

Make that 51. I love every single bit of the Uncut Edition of The Stand.

Same here. I want MORE!

Fair enough. I just don't want all the special features to be found on an extended version, forcing me to choose between the theatrical cut and the features.

Of course, Nolan's never done an extended version before (Following, Memento, Insomnia, Batman Begins, The Prestige) so I'm not expecting one here.

Re: The Dark Knight - Grading & Discussion

Jonathan Nolan mentioned that there is very little in way of deleted footage from The Dark Knight. The same with every other Christopher Nolan movie. The most comes from altered/changed dialogue, different takes thus resulting in different presentations of the same scene, and in this instance one deleted scene in particular (The Joker in the back of a car after the party scene).

The extended cut will probably show the scene where Batman uses his bat-credit card to pay for all the property damage he's done. And in the nightclub scene where Batman nabs Maroni, he does the batdance first to try to blend in as just another club-goer.

^ Damn I thought I saw that scene in the film. Maybe I've already seen the extended cut.

The extended cut will also add back all of the Bam! Whiff! Pop! that was taken out of the cinema release at the behest of Warner Bros. If Nolan had his way, it would've stayed in.
