    * * * * Culver City, CA (March 10, 2003) - Columbia TriStar Home
    Entertainment's
    acclaimed Superbit DVD Collection kicks into high gear with the release
    of several
    explosive action-packed films including XXX starring Vin Diesel, Bad

    * * * * Hailed as "sensational" (Wall Street Journal) and "tantalizing"
    (Stereophile Guide
    to Home Theater), the Superbit Collection has become the new benchmark
    in DVD
    home entertainment for pure performance and high resolution. *By
    reallocating space on
    the disc normally used for value-added content and multiple audio
    streams, Superbit?
    DVDs can be encoded at approximately double their normal bit rate while
    offering full
    compatibility with the DVD Video format. *The result is picture and
    audio quality that
    provides outstanding detail, allowing consumers with an alternate format
    for DVD viewing
    that uses their home theater system to its fullest capacity.

    NSA Agent
    Gibbons (Samuel L. Jackson) convinces Cage to infiltrate a ruthless
    Russian crime ring,
    this new breed of secret agent (code name: XXX) takes down the enemies
    of justice with a
    vengeance in this turbo-charged thrill-ride from the acclaimed director
    of The Fast and The

    I had a feeling these were coming. I'm assuming there are no extras on these discs?
