Includes both the 122-minute TV cut (1.33:1) and the 127-minute theatrical cut (1.78:1) – Both cuts newly mastered in HD! The countdown has begun! Against the real-life backdrop of the US deployment of WMDs in Europe during the escalating Cold War, this dramatically involving and agonizingly graphic film about nuclear holocaust detonated a direct hit into the heartland of America, becoming the most watched TV movie of all time. Starring Jason Robards (Cabo Blanco), JoBeth Williams (American Dreamer), Steve Guttenberg (The Bedroom Window) and John Lithgow (The Manhattan Project), this controversial, potent drama remains one of the most talked-about programs in history. When Cold War tensions reach the ultimate boiling point, the inhabitants of a small town in Kansas learn – along with the rest of America – that they have less than 30 minutes before 300 Soviet warheads begin to appear overhead! Can anyone survive this ultimate nightmare... or the nuclear winter that is sure to follow? Top-notch direction by Nicholas Meyer (Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, Company Business), from a teleplay by Edward Hume (Two-Minute Warning, 21 Hours at Munich).


Blu-ray Extras Include:
