    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    PRESS RELEASE ATTACHED









    Warner Home Video's Definitive

    New Dirty Harry Collection

    Due To Launch In 2007 with

    Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment's

    Dirty Harry Videogame



    Los Angeles, May 10, 2006 -- Warner Home Video (WHV) will release the definitive Dirty Harry Collection in 2007 to coincide with the launch of the Dirty Harry videogame on next generation consoles from Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment (WBIE).



    The joint announcement was made today at E3 2006 by Jason Hall, Senior Vice President of WBIE and by Jeff Baker, WHV's Senior Vice President and General Manager of Theatrical Catalog.



    Clint Eastwood will be a key part of the unprecedented studio wide initiative, consulting on all creative aspects of both the projects. For the DVD release, all films from the celebrated franchise -- Dirty Harry, Magnum Force, The Enforcer, Sudden Impact and The Dead Pool -- will be upgraded to HD DVD with completely revamped sound and, with the help of Eastwood himself, may feature some never-before-seen behind-the-scenes footage and many other bonus materials.



    Beginning September 1 of this year, the five movies will be placed on moratorium for more than a year prior to their release.

    [​IMG] [​IMG] Great news!

    Do you know if Warner will be presenting these in OAR or will they be adjusted to fill a 1.78 aspect ratio?

    The first four Dirty Harry movies (DH, MF, TE, SI) were shot in anamorphic Panavision 2.35:1 AR anyway.

    DP was filmed flat/spherical on 35mm. Let me guess: [​IMG] They will open up the mattes to fill the 16:9 screen. (and I don't mind that, unless they crop the sides instaed of opening the frame)

    I'd really rather have Play Misty For Me. That would make my day. I know, guys like Harry. My dad and brother loved Harry.
