Even though Christopher Nolan’s Inception left theaters just a short time ago, we already have the DVD and Blu-ray release date information available at our fingertips. On December 7th, 2010, get ready for one of the best films of 2010 to expand the new release shelves at your local Blockbuster when Inception arrives and does it’s brain bending justice. And even though the film did $800 million (that’s all?!?) worldwide, the questions fan may still have about the movie will kind of be left in lingo as the DVD/Blu-ray special features don’t exactly give you all the ins and outs either.
