On December 5, Magnolia Pictures will make home entertainment history when it brings the indie drama 'The Architect' to theaters, standard-def DVD, Blu-ray and HD DVD simultaneously.

Though Magnolia has previously released titles in high-def that had previously made day-and-date debuts in theaters and on standard-def DVD, most notably Steven Soderbergh's 'Bubble,' 'The Architect' is the first to premiere on Blu-ray and HD DVD concurrent with the DVD and theatrical releases.

While full tech specs are not yet available for 'The Architect,' both the Blu-ray and HD DVD versions will include 1.78:1 widescreen 1080p video transfers plus a director's audio commentary, deleted scenes and a featurette.

Magnolia has set a $34.95 suggested list price for each release.

We've added new listings for 'The Architect' to both our HD DVD Release Schedule, and Blu-ray Release Schedule, and we'll keep you posted when final specs come in.

We also set up dedicated threads for both editions in our new Forums area -- click the following links to discuss 'The Architect' Blu-ray release and 'The Architect' HD DVD release.
