Universal Goes Into the 'Breach' with HD DVD/DVD Combo

Posted Tue Apr 3, 2007 at 10:32 AM PDT by

Bringing another new release exclusively to the HD DVD format, Universal Studios Home Entertainment has announced a June 5 arrival for the political thriller 'Breach.'

A fictionalized account of the the greatest security leak in the history of the U.S. government, 'Breach' stars Ryan Philippe as FBI upstart Eric O'Neill, who enters into a power game with his boss, Robert Hanssen (Oscar-winner Chris Cooper), the real-life agent who was ultimately convicted of selling secrets to the Soviet Union.

Universal will release the $35 million-grossing critical hit as an HD DVD/DVD combo. Tech specs include a 1080p/VC-1 transfer and Dolby Digital-Plus 5.1 surround track (at 1.5mpbs).

Among the nice assortment of extras are an audio commentary, two making-of featurettes, an segment focusing on the real-life case from 'Dateline NBC,' and 18 minutes of deleted and alternate scenes.

Universal has set their usual $39.98 combo price for the release.

Full specs for 'Breach' have been added to our HD DVD Release Schedule, under June 5.
