Well... Warner's finally gone and done it. They've officially announced the DVD release of Batman Begins for 10/18, as we've been expecting. You'll be able to buy a single-disc regular edition (SRP $28.98) and a 2-disc Deluxe Edition (SRP $30.97). Each will include the film in anamorphic widescreen video (2.40:1), with English and French Dolby Digital 5.1 audio. We believe there will be a full frame version of the regular edition as well.


We don't have all the details yet, but we do know that the 2-disc Batman Begins: Deluxe Edition will feature 8 documentaries (including Genesis of the Bat: Batman Incarnations from the Mid-1980s to the Present, The Journey Begins: Creative Concepts, Story Development and Casting, Shaping Mind and Body: Fighting Style, Gotham City Rises: Production Design, Cape and Cowl: The New Batsuit, The Tumbler: The New Batmobile, Path to Discovery: Filming in Iceland and Saving Gotham City: The Monorail Chase Sequence), several Confidential Files featurettes (broken into Characters and Weaponry), an interactive Inner Demons comic book, theatrical trailers, a photo gallery, Easter eggs and DVD-ROM features (including a Batman Begins "mobile game demo"). The set will also include an exclusive 72-page comic book containing 3 reprinted issues/stories that influenced the film (including Detective Comics #37, Batman: The Man Who Falls and Batman: The Long Halloween). There's no word yet on possible audio commentary, and additional extras are likely TBA.

Will it have DTS like the other Batman re-releases? I hope it does otherwise, I will have to go outside R1 which it will most likely have.

thedigitalbits.com say only Dolby Digital and no DTS. We'll see, of course on 10/18.

I'm more concerned with the authoring of the video due to all the dark scenes. Hope they're handled well...

Warner Bros. is backing off its support for HD-DVD, and has postponed all of their announced titles until 2006 as they wait to see how format unification talks proceed.

It's the MSRP (manufacturer's suggested retail price), which is always high for even standard DVDs ($26-30). Of course, anyone can find them cheaper than that. Batman Begins will be no exception.
