And with Nolan overseeing things, they won't be. The timed IP is his prime source for all his digital deliverables (with some colour correction to match the celluloid record as closely as possible, natch).

The Dark Knight Trilogy UCE is getting shrunk down into a standard size packaging. Same discs with the bonus IMAX scenes and exclusive extras, Nolan letter, and the postcards. It drops the book-style packaging, and the toys. Release date is July 5th, and MSRP is $29.98. I believe there will be also be a release with Suicide Squad movie cash releasing on July 19th as well.

Pretty cheap, I'd buy it just for the bonus discs. No toys though haha

I just came here to post the same thing (though much more mildly).

I'm watching the film right now and I'm having a hard time understanding why the BD reviewer gave the film 5/5 in the PQ department. It's rather poor, in my opinion. The AQ, on the other hand, is quite good so at least this release has that going for it.

I think we have to keep in mind when it was written in the relative history of BD technology. The quality of encodes -- and along with it, our awareness of what's possible, of what's to be expected, and even probably reviewers' discernment -- has ramped up so quickly and so far in just a few years, it makes old encodes and old reviews obsolete pretty quickly. (And then of course, there's fads and fashions, like the dreaded Creeping Teal ...)

I don't much like the audio mix on this film. Subjective, of course, but for me the balance between the overloud music/foley effects and the often-whisper-level dialogue is all out of wack. If I up the volume to get the dialogue more accessible, I find the rest of the audio track a bit oppressive.

It wasn't just the reviewer - TDK caused weeks of forum flame wars. People thought it was either the best blu-ray they've ever seen or garbage.
