Talking of the Christopher Nolan helmed movie, there’s no denying that there are some obvious similarities between Before I Go to Sleep and Memento, but that’s far from a bad comparison, especially as that helped launch The Dark Knight director’s career!

Check out the trailer and poster below, and stay tuned to HeyUGuys for our verdict on the movie later this year. Before I Go to Sleep is set to be released in the UK on September 5th, and in the US on the 12th.
