Posted Wed Nov 13, 2013 at 12:00 PM PST by

John Crowley's intense crime drama heads to Blu-ray in January.

In an early announcement to retailers, Universal is working on 'Closed Circuit' for Blu-ray on January 7.

Eric Bana and Rebecca Hall star in this tense thriller as former lovers caught up in a conspiracy when they're both placed on the same defence team for a high-profile terrorist trial. When terrorists explode a bomb in a crowded London market, the only surviving suspect Farroukh Erdogan (Denis Moschitto), is arrested pending trial. Because of the nature of the classified evidence involved, lawyers Martin Rose (Bana) and Claudia Simmons-Howe (Hall) are appointed by the Attorney General (Jim Broadbent) to represent Farroukh, with Claudia strictly limited to reviewing the 'closed' secret evidence submitted by the security services, and Martin representing the accused in open court. With no contact permitted between the two lawyers during the trial, they're decision to conceal a previous affair from the courts comes back to haunt them when, after uncovering unsettling facts about their client, they find themselves under surveillance and fearing for their lives.

The Blu-ray/DVD/Ultraviolet Combo Pack will feature 1080p video, a lossless 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements include Secrets Behind the Camera: Closed Circuit.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $34.98.
