    "Sandra Bullock's best performance!" - Mike Clark, USA Today
    Murder By Numbers
    Sandra Bullock Faces the Perfect Killers and the Perfect Crime
    in the Barbet Schroeder-directed Suspense Thriller Coming to DVD & VHS
    September 24 from Warner Home Video

    Burbank, Calif., July 8, 2002 - Murder by Numbers -- the suspense thriller
    starring Sandra Bullock as an unorthodox homicide detective tracking down a
    pair of brilliant killers -- debuts September 24th on DVD at $26.98 SRP and
    VHS at $22.98 SRP from Warner Home Video (WHV).

    Sandra Bullock has been a hit with audiences in such films as Speed, While
    You Were Sleeping, A Time to Kill, The Net, Hope Floats, Miss Congeniality
    and, currently, Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood.

    Under the direction of Barbet Schroeder (Single White Female, Reversal of
    Fortune), Bullock leads a cast that includes Ben Chaplin (The Truth About
    Cats & Dogs, The Thin Red Line), Michael Pitt (Finding Forrester) and rising
    star Ryan Gosling, who won acclaim for his starring role in the
    controversial film The Believer, winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the 2001
    Sundance Film Festival.

    A DVD WITH KILLER EXTRAS
    Murder by Numbers will be offered on both widescreen [16X9, 1.85:1] and
    full-screen edition DVDs and will include a full-feature commentary by
    director Barbet Schroeder and editor Lee Percy. The DVD includes the
    theatrical trailer, filmographies, Dolby Digital 5.1 Audio, English and
    French (dubbed in Quebec) languages, and subtitles in English, French and
    Spanish.

    SYNOPSIS
    Fascinating elements of police procedure meld with escalating tension in the
    taut Murder by Numbers. Sandra Bullock "redefines the female detective
    genre" as Cassie Mayweather, a homicide investigator who puts her career in
    jeopardy as she closes in on the elusive perpetrators of a cleverly planned
    "perfect murder." But there's something too perfect about the way the
    forensic evidence adds up, something that ties to Cassie's secret past.

    Beacause of Six Feet Under, this movie will be forever known to me as "Murdering by the Numbers".

    Nikolai: "You go watch Sandra Bullock chick flick, Murdering by the Numbers. I go to see the Blade 2."
