Brit Christopher Nolan has become one of Hollywood’s most in-demand directors following the runaway success of the revamped Batman franchise and movies such as last year’s Inception.
Now, Memento, the breakthrough movie that first put Nolan on the map, has been announced for a special 10th anniversary release on Blu-ray Disc. The film, which tells the unforgettable story of a man (Guy Pearce) with short-term memory loss trying to unravel a murder mystery, wowed audiences around the world back in 2001 and is set to do so again this year.
The new disc, announced by Nolan this week, features an all-new HD transfer of the film, a new featurette with Nolan discussing its legacy, an audio commentary, an Anatomy of a Scene featurette, the script itself, Leonard’s Journal, a tattoo gallery and the original short story that inspired the movie, written by Nolan’s brother Jonathan.
A European release date for the anniversary edition of Memento is to be confirmed, but watch this space for more details. In the meantime, visit Home Media Magazine for more details, and some quotes from Nolan and fellow director Guillermo del Toro on the film’s legacy.
