Heat Special Edition on February 22


Heat — written, directed and produced by Michael Mann (Collateral, Ali, The Insider) — will celebrate its 10th anniversary on February 22, 2005 with the Warner Home Video (WHV) release of a Two-Disc Special Edition. This tale of big city crime and obsession marks the first time that legendary actors Al Pacino and Robert De Niro starred together on the big screen. Heat also features Jon Voight, Tom Sizemore, Val Kilmer, Ashley Judd, Amy Brenneman and Natalie Portman.

Dive into five all-new documentaries exploring every angle of the movie — the real life cops and robbers who inspired the film, the breathtaking bank shoot-out sequence, the 20 year history of the screenplay, the Los Angeles locations and the historic on-screen showdown between Al Pacino and Robert De Niro. Eleven never-before-seen deleted scenes and an all-new commentary by director Michael Mann round out more than four hours of additional entertainment. The double-disc DVD will sell for $26.99 SRP.

Neil McCauley (De Niro) is an expert thief who has assembled a top-notch team of criminals whose latest string of heists has even impressed detective Vincent Hanna (Pacino). As Hanna becomes obsessed with bringing McCauley down and McCauley’s crew prepares for the score of a lifetime, the two find that they are facing the toughest challenges of their careers, on opposite sides of the law.
