Back on Christmas Day this past December, we gave Early Edition fans a gift
, via our scoop that Paramount Home Entertainment would release long-awaited DVDs of this series on June 24th
. We (and all of you) have patiently waited since then, hoping to see the studio's official announcement for the first season set come through!
We're actually still waiting on that formal word from the studio
(CORRECTION: the studio has now announced it, with the same info which follows), but earlier today our friends at DVDEmpire posted a pre-order listing
for Early Edition - The 1st Season
, confirming the release date of June 24th. They give this description of the release:
This is an hour-long drama about Chicago native Gary Hobson, who becomes a reluctant hero when his morning newspaper reports tomorrow's headlines.
Commodities trader Gary Hobson (Kyle Chandler) is losing it: his job, his home and his brilliant attorney wife. He thinks he may even be losing his mind when tomorrow's newspaper mysteriously arrives today...giving him a disconcerting look into the future. What will he do with tomorrow’s news?
While his best friend Chuck (Fisher Stevens) sees the newspaper as a ticket to personal gain, co-worker Marissa (Shanesia Davis) convinces Gary that the "early edition" should be used to better peoples' lives. So each day Gary begins anew the struggle to make sense of a world turned upside-down by the changing course of events that come from reading the "early edition."
DVDEmpire shows this to be a 6-disc set running 1031 minutes, and costing $51.99 SRP. However, you can pre-order it from them right now at the link above for just $41.07, after discount. Video is full-frame, and audio is English - Dolby Digital Stereo. Package art isn't available yet, but stay tuned and we'll bring it to you just as soon as we can!
