Warner Launches App Editions of 'The Dark Knight' and 'Inception'

Posted Wed Feb 16, 2011 at 11:30 AM PST by Dick Ward

The app lets you preview the movie and special features on your Apple device or just buy it outright.

Trailers, by and large, are an unsatisfactory way to get a feel for a film. They're also full of spoilers for people that are concerned about that sort of thing. The new App Editions of 'Inception' and 'The Dark Knight' solve that issue by simply letting you watch the first five minutes of the film and bits of the special features if you so desire.

Here's where things get really interesting. If you like what you see, you can buy the movie directly from iTunes. This purchase gives you unlimited streaming access to the film as well as access to a wide array of bonus content.

In addition to the US, the new app also makes the films available to countries that previously didn't have the film available through iTunes. Menus are available in 16 different languages and subtitles are available in 34.

'The Dark Knight: App Edition' and 'Inception: App Edition' are available to download now. The full version of 'The Dark Knight' will run you $9.99 while 'Inception' comes in at $11.99.
