Inception, this summer’s “mind-blowing” blockbuster film, will be released on Blu-ray, DVD, and On Demand through Warner Home Video on December 7, 2010.
The Blu-ray Combo Pack (Blu-ray disc, DVD, and Digital Copy) will contain will over 90 minutes of bonus material featuring writer/director Christopher Nolan and star Leonardo DiCaprio, and have a suggested retail price of $35.99. The widescreen DVD will apparently has “mind-bending featurettes” and has a suggested retail price of $29.99.
You can pre-order both formats right now at Amazon and lock in their discounted price: Blu-ray Combo Pack ($24.99) or DVD ($20.49).
Warner Bros hasn’t released the full list of bonus content at this time, but their solicitation beckons, “Go inside the dream with extraction mode,” which I’m guessing is some sort of Blu-ray-only feature that allows you to press a button during playback that will give you facts and other details, perhaps in a picture-in-picture format. Maybe, just maybe, some of our unanswered questions regarding the film will be answered with this feature!
Visit the film’s Facebook page to learn about the UNLOCK THE DREAM event, which begins on November 15, where you get new Inception content each week, like never-before-scene videos, and “go to a deeper dream level of inception.” You’ll have to “snap” a photo of something each week and “send” a text/email it to a specified number/email address in order to receive the exclusive content “leading up to the final kick.” Basically, if you’re into Inception and loved the mysteries of that world, then you’ll probably want to get in on this event.
Synopsis: Acclaimed filmmaker Christopher Nolan directs an international cast in this sci-fi actioner that travels around the globe and into the world of dreams. Dom Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) is the best there is at extraction: stealing valuable secrets inside the subconscious during the mind’s vulnerable dream state. His skill has made him a coveted player in industrial espionage but also has made him a fugitive and cost him dearly. Now he may get a second chance if he can do the impossible: inception, planting an idea rather than stealing one. If they succeed, Cobb and his team could pull off the perfect crime. But no planning or expertise can prepare them for a dangerous enemy that seems to predict their every move. An enemy only Cobb could have seen coming.
