[COLOR= rgb(69, 68, 52)]Synopsis[/COLOR]
[COLOR= rgb(69, 68, 52)]It has been eight years since Batman vanished into the night, turning, in that instant, from hero to fugitive. Assuming the blame for the death of D.A. Harvey Dent, the Dark Knight sacrificed everything for what he and Commissioner Gordon both hoped was the greater good. For a time the lie worked, as criminal activity in Gotham City was crushed under the weight of the anti-crime Dent Act.[/COLOR]

[COLOR= rgb(69, 68, 52)]But everything will change with the arrival of a cunning cat burglar with a mysterious agenda. Far more dangerous, however, is the emergence of Bane, a masked terrorist whose ruthless plans for Gotham drive Bruce out of his self-imposed exile. But even if he dons the cape and cowl again, Batman may be no match for Bane.[/COLOR]

It says it's a trilogy, so all three films are in the set.

There's already a set coming out in December with all three movies, so I'm assuming that the 'Ultimate Set' will have to have something that will entice those of us that picked up the others individually to open up their wallets again.

I just want a no-frills Blu-ray edition (don't need DVD, UV, etc). I don't recall the release pattern for the earlier films in the trilogy but I wonder when a regular Blu-ray edition will be available for the typical $20 MSRP (maybe as a store exclusive) ?

I imagine it'll come with the usual stuff: a bonus disc, some book, poster cards, and maybe a toy. :eek:

Yeah - bonus features. It's called an "Ultimate Trilogy Set" or whatever, emphasis on trilogy, so don't expect there to be any more than the three Nolan films and maybe that DCU Animated tie-in anthology movie that nobody liked. GOTHAM KNIGHT or whatever.
