And now for the bad news: it’s only coming to the U.K. Wah! I hear you say, but that’s what www.amazon.co.uk is for, right? And did you know that blu-rays are region-free? See where I’m going with this? Let’s take a look at what Warner Brothers is including with the limited edition ‘Inception’ release, shall we?
The limited edition blu-ray comes contained within a smashing stainless steel mini-briefcase, but also includes: a PASIV (Portable Automated Somnacin IntraVenous) Device User Manual, a series of Movie art-cards, an Inception Spinning Top (Cobb’s token in the flick) and last but not least, a disc of Special Features. I should mention too, that the limited edition includes a ‘triple-play’ edition, which includes a Blu-ray, DVD & Digital Copy of the film.
Some of the special features include ‘Maximum Movie Mode’ in which Christopher Nolan and Leonardo DiCaprio extract information about the world of Inception and learn about all things you may have missed in the film. Questions, answers, surprises and intrigue are all there for the taking! A motion comic titled ‘Inception: The Cobol Job’ which details how Cobb, Arthur and Nash came to be enlisted by Cobol Engineering to perform an extraction on Saito.
A second motion comic entitled, ‘Inception: The Big Under’ which reveals how Cobb and company get to Saito to put him under for the dream featured in the beginning of the film. A special feature called ‘Dream of Consciousness’ which discusses some of the most fascinating and cutting-edge dream research to date on lucid dreaming. And last but not least, 15 Focus Pods and a Photo Gallery.
I have no idea what focus pods are, but I’m pretty sure they’ll allow me to drop clues into your brain that I want you to buy this for me for Christmas. All of this limited edition goodness will set you back £29.99 and if you pre-order now, you can have it dispatched (see what I did there, Brits?) from Amazon on launch day, December 6th, 2010.
