    Unexpected Mysteries and Surprises Fill

    a Groundbreaking Two-Disc Set of MEMENTO

    That Promises Puzzles and Enigmas Extending Beyond

    Christopher Nolan's Revolutionary Film

    __________________________________________________ ___________________

    CULVER CITY, Calif. (April 12, 2002) - MEMENTO, the

    intricately designed, double-Oscar-nominated cinematic mystery, will be

    released May 21 by Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment in a highly

    anticipated, two-disc limited-edition DVD designed by writer-director

    Christopher Nolan.

    For viewers, the surprises and mysteries only begin with the

    critically lauded box-office hit, which was also nominated for a Golden

    Globe Award and was the winner of four Independent Spirit Awards,

    including Best Picture. In fact, the limited-edition DVD offers a

    series of mindbenders and challenges designed by Nolan that begin the

    moment one of the set's two discs is inserted into the player. At its

    core, the DVD is constructed as an elaborate mental puzzle that the

    viewer must solve in order to watch the film and the added-value

    elements.

    "I've enjoyed flexing my creative muscles to come up with

    something completely new and unique to the DVD format," said

    writer/director Christopher Nolan. "I hope fans of MEMENTO will enjoy

    not only the film, but also the extra features and challenges that the

    DVD offers."

    The MEMENTO limited-edition DVD features the most extensive,

    full-length director's commentary since the film's theatrical release.

    One disc is devoted to the film itself, which has been digitally

    remastered and promises the best-ever viewing experience of MEMENTO. It

    also includes a surprise-filled commentary by Christopher Nolan.

    The second disc offers a wealth of special features that

    includes the 23-minute documentary "Anatomy of a Scene." Originally

    shown on The Sundance Channel, it breaks down a single scene from script

    to design to photography to its final screen version.

    Also included on the limited-edition DVD is the original

    short story by Jonathan Nolan, as well as a a "director's script" that

    allows viewers to dissect the film's unique structure by switching

    between a scene and Nolan's annotated film script by using a DVD

    player's angle-change feature.

    The newly designed limited edition of MEMENTO will be housed

    in some of the most unique and creative packaging ever produced, and

    within it viewers will find hidden assistance to solving the puzzles of

    the DVD.

    In MEMENTO, Guy Pearce ("L.A. Confidential") plays Leonard

    Shelby, a man who finds himself without any recollection of recent

    events - except the knowledge that his wife has been murdered. Using

    instant photos and a body filled with tattooed reminders, he pursues the

    man he believes responsible for his wife's death. Or does he?

    MEMENTO: Also starring Carrie-Anne Moss, Joe Pantoliano.

    Executive Producers Aaron Ryder, William Tyrer, Chris J. Ball. Produced

    by Suzanne Todd and Jennifer Todd. Screenplay by Christopher Nolan,

    based on a story by Jonathan Nolan. Directed by Christopher Nolan.

    Until it's proven otherwise, I'd be likely to believe the press release - as opposed to making unsubstantiated complaints.

    The same thing happened with A Groundhod Day. Also, how many non Superbit releases has had a DTS track?

    - Men In Black: DTS Collector's Edition
    - Close Encounters of the Third Kind: Collector's Edition
    - The Mask of Zorro: Special Edition
    - Metropolis (anime)
    Also, in some aspects, Almost Famous as it's a co-production with Columbia and DreamWorks. [​IMG] (That's a joke. [​IMG])

    Henrik, if you check my post, I have updated the list with more movies and I'm still checking to see if other Columbia/Tri-star DVDs have included DTS.
    Also, I can't find no press release anywhere for Groundhog Day. I find cover artwork that was released months before the DVD came out, but no press release.

    Matthew, I don't even think it's worth trying to convince Henrik. Heck, the press release from the studio can't convince him that the Memento LE will have DTS, how can we?
