“The Dark Knight Rises” Blu-ray has no deleted scenes but does have a special cowl


Posted by on

There’s been speculation about what “The Dark Knight Rises” Blu-ray would or wouldn’t include seemingly since the film came out in theaters back in July, but now we can put all the rumors to rest. The official rundown of what will be included in the Blu-ray combo pack has been released and, well, it’s sort of lame.

Entertainment Weekly has the news and the first look at the packaging for the Blu-ray, which includes a collectible “The Dark Knight Rises” shattered cowl. The extra features on the Blu-ray combo pack (Blu-ray, DVD and digital download) include a documentary about the Batmobile, about 17 featurettes explaining how director Christopher Nolan and his team made “The Dark Knight Rises”, a featurette called “The Journey of Bruce Wayne” and a collection of trailers and art galleries.

Fans had been hoping that the Blu-ray for “The Dark Knight Rises” would include a director’s cut or at least some deleted scenes because of how inconsistent the film was. It felt like there were pieces missing and, despite the fact Nolan has repeatedly said he doesn’t have deleted scenes and thus there aren’t any to share on a home video release, many still thought there would be some. Well, we didn’t want to know about Bane’s backstory anyways. (Just kidding, we really did.) Who knows, maybe a future release of Nolan’s trilogy in one package will include some more exciting special features. We’ll just have to hold out hope.

“The Dark Knight Rises” will come out on Blu-ray on December 4.

Final Countdown

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
