============================== noitidE-detimiL detiawA-gnoL OTNEMEM fo DVD 12 yaM desaeleR eb ot ============================== 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.

Unless every possible answer you hit on your remote takes you to the main menu or has the answer key somewhere on the packaging, this is going to drive a lot of consumers nuts. Posted Image

I'm guessing this is an misprint as usual and we'll only get the Dolby track. Doesn't bother me at all though, however I do find it irritating that they can't distribute an 100% accurate press release.

The DVD will include both DTS and Dolby Digital 5.1 tracks (along with the Dolby Digital 2.0 track).

Before the press release was even announced, many sites were reporting that the DVD would include both DD and DTS tracks. Sites that reported this include DVD Talk and DVD Shrine, just to name a few.

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?

Also, in some aspects, Almost Famous as it's a co-production with Columbia and DreamWorks. Posted Image (That's a joke. Posted Image)

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?
