Just over a week before "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" hits theaters, Robert Pattinson's romantic drama, "Remember Me," arrives on DVD and Blu-ray June 22. Both discs will feature audio commentaries with RPattz, as well other castmembers and the filmmakers.
Co-starring Emilie de Ravin, Pierce Brosnan and Chris Cooper, "Remember Me" tells the story of Tyler (Pattinson) and Ally (de Ravin), two young New Yorkers who meet and fall in love in the summer of 2001.
"I never really played a normal guy before, and it was just that," Pattinson told us about the role in March. "It was just a really solid story, and I had never really done that."
He first encountered the script shortly after finishing "Twilight" and ended up shooting the film in between production on "New Moon" and "Eclipse." Filmmakers had been unsuccessfully trying to cast the role of Ally when de Ravin came in to audition.
"I read the script three weeks before they started shooting," she told us. "I flew to New York to test with Rob, and we immediately got along and had instant, great chemistry, which is not an easy thing to come by. Obviously, you're acting, but you want to have that connection with somebody. We had it. And I was thrown into a wardrobe fitting that same day."
Released in the U.S. in March, "Remember Me" grossed $46.9 million worldwide. The Blu-ray will sell for $34.99, while the DVD is priced at $26.99. Starting June 15, fans can download a redeemable coupon for $8 off their purchase. Summit is also packaging the discs with an offer for a free movie poster of Pattinson that is redeemable by mail.
