The Dark Knight is likely to be the biggest Blu-ray release of the year – if not ever.

So it’s appropriate that Warner Bros has decided to make the Batman tale its first BD-Live capable release.

The studio will offer standard and limited edition releases when it hits stores on December 9.

The standard version will include the 153-minute feature film spread across a BD-50 dual-layer disc with 1080p/VC-1 video (2.40:1) and English Dolby TrueHD 5.1 Surround audio.

Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround dubs and subtitles are also provided in English, French-Quebec and Spanish.

Extras included on the first disc also include Gotham Uncovered: Creation of a Scene, a version of the film containing behind-the-scenes vignettes with director Christopher Nolan and his team discussing the planning of the film, the use of IMAX photography, the stunts, and more.

The second disc will feature all-HD extras including featurettes and a collection of six episodes from Gotham Cable entitled Gotham Tonight.

BD-Live content has not been revealed but Warner said a digital copy will be included in both releases.
