Posted Fri Sep 29, 2006 at 10:18 AM PDT by
Miami Vice (2006) Universal Studios Home Entertainment will add to its lineup of HD DVD/DVD combo titles when it releases 'Miami Vice' in time for the holidays.

Michael Mann's big-screen update of his classic '80s television show, which grossed a disappointing $65 million at the domestic box office, will hit the format on December 5 in an Unrated Director's Cut featuring seven minutes of footage not seen in the theaters.

Technical specs for the HD DVD side of the disc include the Unrated Cut presented in 1080p/VC-1 widescreen (2.40:1) transfer and Dolby TrueHD and Dolby Digital 5.1 surround tracks.

Supplemental details are yet available, but of course the release should contain all of the same extras as its standard DVD counterpart.

Universal has set a $34.95 list price for the title.

Watch for full specs in the coming days, and check out the latest listing in our complete HD DVD Release Schedule.
