'The Dark Knight Rises' out on Blu-ray, DVD on Dec. 4 -- EXCLUSIVE

Holy smokes, Batman. The rumors, speculation and general chit-chat can be put to rest.

Christopher Nolan’s Batman epic The Dark Knight Rises will be released on Blu-ray combo pack, DVD, and digital download on Dec. 4, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Group announced exclusively to EW.

The last film in Nolan’s dark, gritty Gotham City trilogy, starring Christian Bale, Anne Hathaway, and Tom Hardy as brutal villain Bane, will also be available in a limited edition Blu-ray Bat Cowl collectible package — not quite in time for your Halloween costume, but there’s always next year.

The Blu-ray combo pack is stuffed with a bunch of extras, from a documentary about the Batmobile, where all five Batmobiles are together for the first time, to Ending the Knight, an in-depth look featuring about 17 featurettes at how Nolan and his production team made The Dark Knight Rises, from Batman vs. Bane to totally demolishing a city street. Both the Blu-ray and DVD include a featurette called The Journey of Bruce Wayne. There are also trailers and art galleries.

Christian Bale visits hospitalized victims of Colorado shooting

In the wake of Friday’s shooting at a screening of The Dark Knight Rises in Aurora, Colo., Warner Bros. canceled the cast’s appearances at premieres abroad, but Christian Bale has quickly found himself with a ticket to a new destination: On Tuesday afternoon the actor was in Aurora visiting victims of the shooting.

The Denver Post reported that the actor spent about two-and-a-half hours at the Medical Center of Aurora.

“The patients were really happy to meet Bale,” Bill Voloch, interim president of Medical Center of Aurora, told the Denver Post. “They are obviously big fans of his movies. They wanted to see Batman and were really pleased to see Bale.”

Among the people Bale visited was Carey Rottman, who posted a photo of himself with Bale on Facebook. READ FULL STORY

Box office report: 'The Dark Knight Rises' debuts with $160.9 million

dark-knight-rises-batman

Official numbers are in, and the final chapter in Christopher Nolan’s Batman saga, The Dark Knight Rises, earned a gargantuan $160.9 million in its opening weekend — the third-best debut of all time, and the best ever for a 2-D movie. The haul, which includes $19 million from 332 IMAX screens, is just slightly ahead of The Dark Knight‘s $158.3 million debut in 2008, and slightly behind Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 2‘s $169.2 million in 2011.

Prognosticators said the film would finish somewhere between $180 and 200 million during its first three days (I predicted $192 million), but the tragic shooting at a midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises in Aurora, Colo. on Friday may have dissuaded some moviegoers from heading out to the theater over the weekend.

'The Dark Knight Rises' preview: Christopher Nolan, Christian Bale discuss the key scene at the heart of the Batman trilogy

With the release of The Dark Knight Rises, director Christopher Nolan completes a trilogy of grave and gritty Batman films that began with Batman Begins in 2005 and continued with The Dark Knight in 2008. The third installment brings unity and closure to the saga  – but that’s not to say Nolan and his collaborators had a master plan from the start. The filmmaker says he always knew he would never make more than three Bat-flicks, but he approached each project as if it might be the last. His strategy: Pour every Batty idea into the work at hand; remain consistent with the themes and plot of the previous chapter; keep a fuzzy option or two open for what might come next… except for Rises, which Nolan swears is his Batman swan song. “The truth is I always wanted to tell more of Bruce Wayne’s story, but in a superstitious sense, you can’t plan on that,” says the helmer, whose other credits include Memento and Inception. “You have to tell one great story, one great film. And if people demand another one, you have permission to make it.”

The Dark Knight Rises...but not for Broadway musicals: Why Christian Bale won't be seeing 'Newsies'

Once upon a time, Newsies was a movie musical starring Christian Bale that flopped at the box office and with critics when it was released by The Walt Disney Company in 1992. Today, Newsies is a lauded Broadway musical smash starring Jeremy Jordan in the role played by Bale in the film, which despite failure inspired a passionate cult of fans who call themselves “Fansies.” No one is more surprised by this turn of events than Bale himself. “These things never make any sense,” the Oscar-winning actor and Hollywood’s current Batman told EW in a recent interview. “I’m incredibly happy for them. They’re having the success our movie never had.”  READ FULL STORY

Gary Oldman talks 'Dark Knight Rises' ending, and Tom Hardy spills on Bane inspiration

At the star-studded premiere of Dark Knight Rises last night (check out a compilation of live-stream footage here) the stars were ready to talk about the final film in Christopher Nolan’s epic trilogy — but they were tight-lipped as far as plot specifics. (No big details are given away, but for those that want to remain totally spoiler free, here is your SPOILER ALERT!)

Gary Oldman, who plays police commissioner Gordon in the films, told EW when asked about the ending, “It packs an emotional punch, this one,” Oldman said. “And it’s got hope. [Dark Knight wasn’t so hopeful.] But we still had another one to make. [This one] has got a nice, uplifting theme to it.”

Christian Bale agreed with Oldman’s assessment of the tone. He told EW, “There’s a lot of complexities to it.” But as to whether or not Dark Knight Rises would feel different from Dark Knight, Bale didn’t want to distinguish. “I kind of feel like [the trilogy] is one movie anyway,” he said.

'The Dark Knight Rises' movie premiere: Watch the live stream replay here!

The Dark Knight Rises may appear to be in part a parable about the dangers of conspicuous displays of excessive wealth, but in the case of the world premiere of the conclusion to Christopher Nolan’s record-breaking Batman saga, a little glitz and glamour seem perfectly called for.

'The Dark Knight Rises': Christopher Nolan cements his place in Hollywood at hand and footprint ceremony

Christopher Nolan will leave big shoes to fill when it comes to future silver screen interpretations of the Batman story, but for now he’s letting his shoes leave their mark — in Hollywood’s most famous cement courtyard, that is. The Dark Knight Rises director was honored during a hand and footprint ceremony at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Los Angeles today.

Nolan joins 261 other Hollywood luminaries — including Marilyn Monroe, Clark Gable, Julie Andrews and Steven Spielberg — immortalized in the Forecourt to the Stars since 1927.

“This is all a bit surreal for me,” Nolan told the crowd, which included his family, cast members of The Dark Knight Rises, frequent collaborators Wally Pfister and Hans Zimmer, and an assemblage of eager Batman fans. The director — who is also behind such mind-benders as Inception, Memento and The Prestige — then recalled his first visit to Grauman’s at the age of 16. READ FULL STORY

'Dark Knight Rises' TV spot: Catwoman to the rescue

Anne Hathaway’s Catwoman gets an extra-special showcase in the latest TV advertisement for The Dark Knight Rises, Christopher Nolan’s upcoming movie about steroidal anarchists with breathing masks or whatever. “You don’t stand a chance against these guys,” says Anne-Cat. “With your help, I might,” says Bale-Bat.

'Dark Knight Rises' TV spot: Getting strong now?

Fans of Batman are always digging though the Dark Knight’s comic book archives when trying to predict where Christopher and Jonathan Nolan are going to take their hero next. But as The Dark Knight Rises comes more into focus following the release of a third TV spot, it’s becoming clear they might be taking their cues from an entirely different source: the Rocky franchise.

I’m kidding, of course, but there are a few odd parallels between what’s been teased in the trio of recent clips and Rocky III and Rocky IV  — at least if you really want there to be. Most obviously, Bane is an amalgam of Clubber Lang and Ivan Drago, a brutally violent drug-enhanced freak. Like Rocky Balboa, Batman and Bruce Wayne are now enjoying the fruits of their labors and perhaps they’ve grown a little soft. Then, suddenly, Bane strikes, putting Commissioner Gordon in the hospital — read: Mickey’s death — and shaking Batman’s confidence. He’s got to get his mojo back to defend his honor and Gotham, but can he be that hero again? “You’re not Batman anymore,” whines Alfred, in the most recent TV spot. Ouch. That’s almost as harsh as Adrian shouting at Rocky from the top of the stairs in Rocky IV, “You can’t win!” Watch for more clues below. READ FULL STORY
