Breaking up its best-selling 'Ultimate Missions' HD DVD and Blu-ray box sets, Paramount Home Entertainment will release the first two 'Mission: Impossible' films as stand-alone discs on May 22.

Both 'Mission: Impossible' and its first sequel 'M:i-2' were originally available only as part of Paramount's 'Ultimate Missions' box set, which quickly became the studio's all-time top-selling next-gen release. (The package also contained the final installment in the trilogy, 'M:i:III,' which has already been made available for purchase separately).

Now, with 'Ultimate Missions' apparently having run through most of its sales course, the studio is finally ready to issue stand-alone versions of 'Mission: Impossible' and 'M:i-2.'

Each single-disc release will be identical to the versions in the box set. Tech specs include 1080p transfers and Dolby Digital 5.1 tracks, and a wealth of extras, including commentaries multiple featurettes, still galleries and more.

Paramount has set a $29.95 list price for each 'Mission' flick.

We've added new listings for both 'Mission: Impossible' stand-alone titles to our HD DVD Release Schedule and Blu-ray Release Schedule, under May 22.
