Permission to Buy: ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ Hits Blu-ray and Digital Download In Time for the Holidays

The Dark Knight Rises

UPDATED: Eagle-eyed reader John Couture notes in the comments that the release date has since been deleted from the WB YouTube page. Was it a mistake? Did someone jump the gun too soon? We’ll let you know when a more official word is out!

Considering that Christopher Nolan‘s The Dark Knight Rises came out way back in July, you’d be tempted to think Warner Bros. was fresh out of trailers for the film. Wrong! The studio has now (quite slyly) put up a new trailer on their YouTube page, one which teases that we should be on the lookout for the film to hit Blu-ray and Digital Download soon. Tantalizing, right? Well, the studio also put the film’s home video release date in the description of the trailer, so it seems like we might not need to be as eagle-eyed as the video lets on.

The Dark Knight Rises will be available on Blu-ray Combo Pack and Digital Download on December 3, 2012. So far, there’s no word on any special features, but we’ll keep you updated when they are announced, perhaps via a well-placed billboard or a viral campaign. Check out the “trailer” for the home video release for The Dark Knight Rises after the break.
