You Too Can Now Own Spielberg’s ‘Bridge of Spies’

Steven Spielberg’s latest film–which  has earned six Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture, and nine BAFTA Awards–is available on Blu-Ray and Digital HD starting Tuesday, February 2.
The critically acclaimed dramatic thriller, which topped AFI’s Movies of the Year list, stars Tom Hanks and is based real events. The combo pack that is available starting tomorrow will include extras, such as “A Case of the Cold War: Bridge of Spies,” in which  Spielberg and Hanks share personal stories of the Cold War and also discuss why the history still resonates today. There’s also footage included from “U-2 Spy Plane: Beale Air Force Base” of the U-2 plane for the film and details about “Spy Swap: Looking Back on the Final Act,” an inside look at Steven Spielberg and his team as they stage the pivotal scene of the film at Glienicke Bridge, the very same location where the historic exchange of Soviet spy Rudolf Abel and U-2 spy plane pilot Francis Gary Powers took place. Lastly, there’s also a recreation of Cold War Berlin with “Berlin 1961: Recreating the Divide,” which includes a mix of behind-the-scenes footage and iconic archival imagery to transport viewers to the film’s historical setting.
