The Dark Knight Blu-ray disc gets a release date

The Dark Knight was this summer’s hottest movie – after Swing Vote that is – and the Blu-ray release finally gets a launch date. The title is slated for a day and date release of the standard DVD of December 9 and will be Warner’s first BD Live disc. There wasn’t any word on what the BD Live content will be, but the two disc set will be loaded with extras that is sure to keep Batman and Ledger fans entertained for hours.

True fans might opt for the Limited Edition release that comes in a Bat Pod packaging, but features the same discs. The standard Blu-ray discs are going to carry a $35.99 MSRP and Warner hasn’t announced the price for the Limited Edition option yet.
