Ah ok.
Anyway, with Sterling getting so weak I'm switching my order to the UK version (£14.83 from thehut), it's about £4 cheaper than the US version now.

More interesting details come to light,

Quote:
Warner Home Video confirmed over the weekend that The Dark Knight director and co-writer Christopher Nolan will be the second guinea pig for a BD-Live chat session.

Unlike Universal who is not capping the number of participants for the Hellboy II chat, Warner is cutting off registration after the first 100,000 purchasers of The Dark Knight on Blu-ray in either the standard or Bat-Pod Collector's Edition sets register for the event.

Based on the rumored 1 million copies of The Dark Knight on Blu-ray expected to ship for its December 9 release, these slots could very well completely fill up.

It is still unclear how Warner and Nolan will be fielding questions. Universal has opened up their BD-Live portal to registered members who can submit up to three questions for consideration beforehand.

We've also learned The Dark Knight standard and Bat-Pod Blu-ray sets will include a feature were you can create a video commentary using a web-cam and upload it to the web for others to view.

The video commentary thing seems a bit pointless. I wouldn't really wanna watch some random's video commentary on The Dark Knight. It would be good if some professional film-makers or critics embrace it and upload their own though (i.e. download a video commentary by Kevin Smith or Mark Kemode etc).

Anyone? This was a serious question.

Of course not. If your watching on a widescreen telly, there simply won't be black bars for 30minutes of the movie (spread out over 6 scenes I believe).

Nerdy note, Nolan actually tested out the IMAX cameras by shooting a couple of shots in The Prestige with them.

Er, there's no such thing as an anamorphic Blu-Ray. Or HD-DVD for that matter. Anamorphic is purely a dvd technology that's not needed with this new fangled Hi-Def technology

this is now in stock at quite a few importers for the Region A version, I'm waiting on HMV as i had a voucher for them, and import prices are so damn expensive now
Shame, would love to watch it this weekend, but I'll wait a few weeks and save me a tenner (+)

Of course! What is the ratio of these scenes, I didn't think it was 1:78 so Im guessing there will be vertical black bars down the side?

IMAX scenes will be 1.78:1 to fill (almost) standard widescreen display
rest of film is 2.35:1 (or is it 2.40:1)
although IMAX true ratio is around 1.66:1 i think, he's slightly cropping it for the Bluray

I'm starting to think I should remove this from my Christmas list I gave to my girlfriend and I should just add it to the 'get it for me NOW' list!

I really want to watch this again!!!!!!

It's like the good old days :/

I really want to see TDK as I missed it at the flicks, but I can wait for the sub-£15 offerings to make their way to me
