Warner Home Video announced today they will be releasing a 7-disc Christopher Nolan Director’s Collection on Blu-ray for sale starting June 26th. Included in the collection will be Memento, Insomnia, Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, and Inception — aka all of his features except Following and The Prestige. The collection will include special features for each movie, 10 collectible photo cards, a 40-page photo book with images from the films, and a Movie Cash voucher good for $8 off the cost of a The Dark Knight Rises ticket.
The collection presents each film in its original 2.39:1 aspect ratio, with occasional shifts to 1.78:1 for The Dark Knight, and with 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio tracks — 5.1 Dolby TrueHD for Batman Begins. Warner Home Video licensed Lionsgate‘s 10th Anniversary Edition of Memento, so their new director approved master should be present in this collection. There is no word on whether The Dark Knight or Batman Begins have received new transfers.
Retail will be around $50 for the 5 film collection. It’s a shame The Prestige and Following can’t be included in this package, as a true ‘complete’ package of the director’s filmography would be ideal. Oh well.
