In an early alert to retailers, DreamWorks has announced that it will bring the Halle Berry drama 'Things We Lost in the Fire' to HD DVD this February.
Starring Berry and Benecio Del Toro as widowers who find love after tragedy, 'Things We Lost in the Fire' was promoted as one of the season's potential Oscar heavyweights, but weak reviews and a middling box office gross of less than $15 million have seen the film all but disappear off the awards-season radar.
DreamWorks/Paramount is apparently planning to give the film another shot at Oscar attention on February 12, planning the disc for HD DVD release day-and-date with the standard-def DVD.
No tech specs or supplemental details were available at press time, but the studio tells us that a full press release is expected next week, so we'll keep you posted.
Paramount has set a $39.98 suggested list price for the HD DVD.
