First Look HD-DVD Premiere of The Contract

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 06/21/07 -- First Look Home Entertainment (PINKSHEETS: FRST) and Nu Image / Millennium Films are jumping into the high definition market with the DVD premiere of THE CONTRACT. The film, which stars Morgan Freeman and John Cusack, will get the complete high definition treatment with better visuals, enhanced sound and packed with extras. The film will be available on July 24, 2007 in standard DVD and HD-DVD versions.

"We chose THE CONTRACT as our first high definition release because of its star-power and the added features we could offer in the format," says First Look Studios COO Dean Wilson. "We are poised at First Look to offer the DVD audience an enormous array of entertainment titles to choose from, and THE CONTRACT is an excellent sample. John Cusack, Morgan Freeman and Director Bruce Beresford ("Driving Miss Daisy," "Double Jeopardy") delivered a superb film."

THE CONTRACT is an action-thriller staring Morgan Freeman as Frank Cordell, a world-class assassin who invades the quiet suburban life of John Cusack's character Ray Keene. While camping with his son, single parent Keene must evade the assassin's team and bring Cordell to justice in a deadly game of cat and mouse.

It's nice to see a new hd-dvd supporter. I wonder why they went with HD-DVD? I imagine that was based on cost, Considering they are a smaller studio. Still the same, good to hear.
