Just pre-ordered my copy on Amazon UK :D
3rd September 2010: Warner Home Video UK will release a limited edition Blu-ray briefcase SKU plus Triple Play and DVD releases of Inception on 6th December 2010.

Customers can opt for the Inception briefcase from today when pre-ordering Christopher Nolan’s Inception from all major online retailers including Play, Amazon and HMV. The limited edition briefcase SKU will also be available in store from 6th December.

The briefcase configuration consists of a Triple play pack, Spinning Top, Theatrical Dream Machine Leaflet and four art cards showing main Key Art. It is available whilst stocks last priced £39.99

The Triple play pack includes the feature film on Blu-ray and DVD discs, Digital Copy and a disc of special features.

Inception will also be available on digital platforms from 6th December.

Dom Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) is a skilled thief, the best in the dangerous art of extraction: stealing valuable secrets from deep within the subconscious during the dream state when the mind is at its most vulnerable. Cobb’s rare ability has made him a coveted player in this treacherous new world of corporate espionage, but it has also made him an international fugitive and cost him everything he has ever loved. Now Cobb is being offered a chance at redemption. One last job could give him his life back but only if he can accomplish the impossible—inception. Instead of the perfect heist, Cobb and his team of specialists have to pull off the reverse; their task is not to steal an idea but to plant one. If they succeed, it could be the perfect crime. But no amount of careful planning or expertise can prepare the team for the dangerous enemy that seems to predict their every move. An enemy that only Cobb could have seen coming.

Inception stars three-time Academy Award® nominee Leonardo DiCaprio (“Blood Diamond,” “The Aviator”), Academy Award® nominee Ken Watanabe (“The Last Samurai”), Joseph Gordon-Levitt (“500 Days of Summer”), Oscar® winner Marion Cotillard (“La Vie en Rose”), Academy Award® nominee Ellen Page (“Juno”), Tom Hardy (“RocknRolla,” “Bronson”), Cillian Murphy (“Batman Begins”), Tom Berenger (“Training Day”), Dileep Rao (“Avatar”), and two-time Oscar® winner Michael Caine (“Hannah and Her Sisters,” “The Cider House Rules”).

:unbelieving:

What? That's just amazing. Too bad for me it's UK only as of now, I don't know how I could import, nor do I know how much the shipping would cost. The UK Blu-Ray and DVD actually already have a release date while the US's don't. So perhaps when they announce a release date for everything over here, they'll make an edition for the US Amazon store. Major studio Blu-Rays are region free though so I don't know, it might be worth it if I can import it.

Anyone know how much Amazon UK would charge to import this? It seems they allow North America shipping but the article on it is a bit vague.

30 pounds equates to about $50 these days correct? That's only $15 more than a standard new release Blu-Ray, totally worth it.
[Update] Just went for it and pre-ordered it, looks like it only comes out to about 44 USD, more than worth it when a Blu-Ray itself already costs $35. Now I just have to find out if the BD is definitely region free, don't wanna spend $44 on a movie I can't watch :laugh: .

Wow, absolutely amazing :hearteyes: ! I'm sure there will be an announcement soon about a similar limited edition briefcase package for North America. And when that announcement comes, I will be ready to pre-order immediately. I'm absolutely giddy with excitement :D

FINALLY! Us British get something decent.
In the country dead bodies live in swamps and ditches and shallow graves. A man dumps the body of a girl in a ditch. The body rotts melts into slime. Flowers pop up where the body lies, seeds fly out of the flowers and a bee sucks the flowers and makes honey. Then the family of the girl buys the honey from the store. And the family eats the girl.

Okay, back to topic. I don't know where the problem is? Amazon is already selling it for £29,99 at the moment, which is a fair and good price for such a comprehensive edition, and ships internationally for a reasonable charge.

Do you have any confirmation that it'll be region free.

According to boxofficemojo:
Inception UK Gross: $51 million
Inception USA + Canada Gross: $272 million
I doubt Warner Bros would be dumb enough to not release a limited edition package for North America.

But I'm willing to bet the UK version will release first, so it's still worth ordering from the UK. I have mine pre-ordered, should be here about 8 days after shipping, so I'll be the first around town to have Inception on blu-ray and the only with a special edition briefcase :p.

I would be fine with the US version as long as it can arrive before Christmas, so I can watch the Blu-Ray Inception throughout winter break :totalhappy:.

The UK always has limited editions of things. Rare or what not. I bought most of my 12" records from the UK.

There's a store in NYC called Record Runner. They have dvd's. They always import for less.

According to NolanFans, the Blu-ray disc is region-free, while the DVD and digital copy may not be viewable outside Europe (which means they are probably Region 2 coded). :)

The digital copies are usually very strict with their usage and DVDs are never region free so that would make sense.

Flowers pop up where the body lies, seeds fly out of the flowers and a bee sucks the flowers and makes honey. Then the family of the girl buys the honey from the store. And the family eats the girl.

Not bad, it's worth the sacrifice. If the briefcase edition gets a US release around the same time as the UK I'll switch but to get this I'm willing to not get the digital copy. I have software on my computer that bypasses region coding, (probably not legal but what am I gonna do when I want a DVD and can't find a region one copy?) which is all I use DVDs for now so that's fine. The only concern is the digital copy, I don't know if I can access it with the software. I don't know we'll see, there's so much bang for your buck in this collector's edition I guess I could just shell out $10 on iTunes.
