Paramount finally revisits Mission: Impossible

The Tom Cruise actioner Mission: Impossible was an early DVD release from Paramount Home Entertainment back when the studio first entered the DVD arena. Sadly, at the time the release was without any extras and without even a decent transfer, but all that is going to change soon as the studio has added a new Special Collector’s Edition version of the film to their line-up in April.

Cruise stars as Ethan Hunt, a secret agent framed for the deaths of his espionage team. Fleeing from government assassins, breaking into the CIA’s most impenetrable vault, clinging to the roof of a speeding bullet train, Hunt races like a burning fuse to stay one step ahead of his pursuers… and draw one step closer to discovering the shocking truth.

This new release will feature a brand new transfer of the movie, enhanced for 16×9 TV sets, as well as audio tracks in Dolby Digital 5.1 and Dolby Surround.

As extras the release will contain 6 Featurettes covering various aspects of the movie’s productions, such as “Remarkable – 40 Years of Creating The Impossible,” “Explosive Exploits,” “Spies Among Us,” “Catching The Train,” “International Spy Museum” and “Agent Dossiers.” Also included on the release is the Stanley Kubrick Award for Excellence in Filmmaking Acceptance Speech as a look at the Generation: Cruise.

The release is rounded out by the movie’s Trailers and TV Spots as well as a Photo Gallery with promo and production still.s

“Mission Impossible: Special Collector’s Edition” will be in stores on April 11 and carry a $19.95 suggested retail price.
