THE BOURNE COLLECTION on Blu-ray
For the first time on Blu-ray, THE BOURNE IDENTITY, THE BOURNE SUPREMACY and THE BOURNE ULTIMATUM are available together in this special edition high-definition collection on January 27, 2009 from Universal Studios Home Ent.
Starring Matt Damon as Jason Bourne -- a highly-trained assassin on the run from a shadowy government agency -- the Bourne movies offer non-stop action, edge-of-your-seat suspense and spectacular chase sequences brimming with international espionage conspiracies.
The three-disc set is loaded with hours of bonus materials including deleted scenes, interviews, behind-the-scenes featurettes, commentaries and all-new interactive content exclusive to Blu-ray. Universal's Exclusive U-Control takes viewers beyond the movie with Picture-in-Picture and a series of interactive dossiers, loaded with classified information about Jason Bourne's mysterious past and the people who pursue him. Through Universal's BD-Live Center fans can download even more bonus content, share their favorite scenes with buddies, and engage in a Blu-ray exclusive strategy game that pits users against each other in hand-to-hand combat simulation.
THE BOURNE IDENTITY: After being pulled from the sea with two bullets in his back, Jason Bourne (Matt Damon) awakens on a fishing boat with no memory of his involvement in a top-secret, black ops arm of the CIA called Treadstone. The only clue to his identity is the number of a Swiss bank account in which he discovers an array of passports and weapons, as well as a fortune in cash. As he struggles to regain his memory, his former employers dub him a rogue agent and target him for termination. When an equally deadly assassin codenamed "Professor" (Clive Owen) is sent to dispose of him, Bourne rediscovers his extraordinary survival skills, including hand-to-hand combat, martial arts and multiple languages, and begins to understand who he really is. As he struggles to unlock the secret of his own identity, Bourne has to deal with his past in order to ensure his own future.
The 2002 theatrical release has vfx by ILM, Illusion Arts and Pacific Title Digital.
