Christopher Nolan’s three Batman movies have been issued together on Blu-ray before, but not as lavishly and bells-and-whistles-laden as with the six-disc The Dark Knight Trilogy: Ultimate Collector’s Edition ($99.97), limited to 141,000 sets. As if the films weren’t excellent in themselves, the sturdy box houses three Bat-toys, one 48-page book and five art prints by cult illustrator Mondo.
