DVD Release Date: 20 February 2007

A good magician doesn’t give away his tricks, so it’s little wonder the DVD release of The Prestige only has a couple of featurettes up it’s sleeve. Curious fans will have to be content with The Director’s Notebook: The Cinematic Sleight of Hand of Christopher Nolan and The Art of the Prestige gallery. Audio tracks are available in English (Dolby Digital 5.1), French (Dolby Digital 2.0) and Spanish (Dolby Digital 2.0), with subtitles in Spanish and French.
