Paramount Home Entertainment is sending the end-of-the-world movie Deep Impact into the race once again, bringing the film to DVD and Blu-Ray Disc in May.

What would you do if you knew that in a handful of days an enormous comet would collide with Earth and all humanity could be annihilated? The countdown to doomsday is underway in this “gut-wrenching, eye-opening blast of a movie experience” (Jeff Craig, Sixty Second Preview). Mimi Leder (The Peacemaker) directs, guiding an all-star cast featuring Robert Duvall, Tea Leoni, Elijah Wood, Vanessa Redgrave, Maximilian Schell and Morgan Freeman. With the film’s dynamic fusion of large-scale excitement and touching, human-scale storylines, Deep Impact makes its impact felt in a big and unforgettable way.

The Collector’s Edition DVD will feature an anamorphic widescreen transfer with Dolby Digital 5.1 audio and will also contain a Commentary Track with Director Mimi Leder and Visual Effects Supervisor Scott Farrar. Further the release includes a series of Featurettes, suc has ”Preparing For The End,” “Making An Impact,” “Creating the Perfect Traffic Jam” and ”Parting Thoughts”. Also included on the release are a Photo Gallery and various Trailers.

On Blu-Ray Disc you will be treated to a 1080p high definition transfer with an Dolby Digital 5.1 TrueHD audio track. The extras on the release will be identical to those found on the DVD version.

“Deep Impact” arrives on May 18 for $12.98 on DVD and $29.99 on Blu-Ray Disc.
