United 93 (R1) in September
Universal Studios Home Video have announced the Region 1 DVD release of United 93 for 5th September 2006 priced at $29.98 SRP. The first of this year's two high-profile Hollywood movies about 9/11, Paul Greengrass' acclaimed film dramatises what happened aboard the fourth hijacked aircraft, which failed to hit its target in Washington. Featuring a cast of little-known actors, the film uses a naturalistic approach to try and capture the experience of the passengers and crew.
Available in separate Widescreen and Full Screen editions the film is presented with English, French and Spanish audio (DD5.1 Surround) and subtitle options. There is also an English DVS (Audio Descriptive) track in 2.0 Stereo. Extras include a director’s commentary, memorial pages and a candid 50-minute documentary, United 93: The Families and the Film. Eight families whose loved ones perished on the flight and the actors who portray them share their very personal insights and conversations on the real people on board United 93.
Also available is a 2-Disc Limited Edition priced at $30.98 SRP. For an extra dollar you get a second disc with an additional documentary entitled "Chasing Planes - Witnesses to 9/11".
