With 'The Dark Knight' only days away from Blu-ray release, Warner has revealed the final list of BD-Live features which are set to include the ability to record your own video commentary and other additional exclusives.

Leading the just-confirmed roster of BD-Live functions is "My WB Commentary," which allows users with a webcam to record their own video commentary that can be shared online with others. The track will play as a picture-in-picture track while your friends watch the film. (Bonus View-compatible player required.)

Other features include "My Community Screening," which facilitates real-time multiple viewing of the film via BD-Live. Users can chat during playback, connect to community showings our send out invitations for their own screenings.

Additional web-driven features on 'The Dark Knight' include an online destination where you can shop the WB Store, download trailers of other Warner Blu-ray releases, create your own wishlist of upcoming WB Blu-ray titles, and even create a database listing for your current high-def library.

Warner also says it is planning to host a "My Community Screening" with director Christopher Nolan where viewers can partake in a Q&A with the filmmaker. (There is no confirmed event date, but we'll keep you posted.)

'The Dark Knight' will hit stores on Blu-ray December 9 in standard two-disc (MSRP $35.99) and collectible Limited Edition ($64.99) versions.
