It was announced today via IndieWire that Christopher Nolan’s first feature film Following will be entering the prestigious Criterion Collection this December. It has received a new high-definition transfer as supervised by Nolan himself, as well a new 5.1 surround sound mix by sound editor Gary Rizzo. Other special features include a new interview with director Christopher Nolan, a chronological version of the film, the previously recorded commentary track, a comparison between select scenes and the script, as well as the Nolan’s short film Doodlebug.
We first heard about Following getting the Criterion treatment just over 3 years ago, but there was never a set date. Fans can now look forward to the holidays with this December 2012 release, as well as an assumed December release for The Dark Knight Rises. Find out more about this special release by heading over to the official Criterion site. And thanks to Insomniac and Dagn96 on the forums and twitter for the heads-up!
