Leonardo DiCaprio is bringing Inception to Blu-ray in December
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Warner Home Video has announced that they will be releasing the summer hit INCEPTION, directed by Christopher Nolan and starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Ellen Page, on December 7, 2010. The film will be available in a BD/DVD/Digital Copy combo pack, and starting November 15th, consumers will be able to “receive exclusive, never-before-seen Inception content on their camera-enabled mobile devices via Inception Snap Tags that will be placed on various Inception advertising materials.” You may remember that part of the promotion of the film was hiding images and movie promos in barcode-like pictures, so this feature will play on that. This content will be available on a weekly basis until the final release on December 7th, which will somehow tie into the BD/DVD/Digital Copy combo pack. I’m not usually into all of this extra stuff studios do to promote films, but INCEPTION was so incredible it might be cool to be a part of this special BD release. Special features for the film will include:
- Dreams: Cinema of the Subconscious: taking some of the most fascinating and cutting-edge dream research to-date on lucid dreaming, top scientists make the case that the dream world is not an altered state of consciousness, but a fully functional parallel reality.
- Inception: The Cobol Job: now in full animation and motion, check out this comic prologue to see how Cobb, Arthur, and Nash came to be enlisted by Cobol Engineering and perform an extraction on Saito.
- Extraction Mode: infiltrate the dreamscape of Inception – with this in-movie experience – to learn how Christopher Nolan, Leonardo DiCaprio and the rest of the cast and crew designed and achieved the movies signature moments.
- 5.1 Soundtrack selections from Hans Zimmer’s score
- Conceptual art gallery
- Promotional art archive
- TV spots
- Project Somnacin: Confidential Files: get access to the highly secure files that reveal the inception of the dream-share technology.
