‘Bridge of Spies’ Coming to Blu-Ray

Steven Spielberg’s Cold War drama, Bridge of Spies, comes to Blu-Ray and Digital HD download on February 2. The Blu-Ray combo-pack includes a number of special features, including behind-the-scenes films about the recreation of the Berlin Wall, the story of the U-2 spy plane flown by Francis Gary Powers, and an exploration of the history of the Cold War, including more background information on attorney James Donovan, spy Rudolf Abel, along with Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks’ reflections on the period.

We previously reviewed Bridge of Spies here on GeekDad, and we will have more information and reviews of the Blu-Ray’s features before the release date. Bridge of Spies will be available in Digital HD/SD, Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD, and On-Demand.


A dramatic thriller set against the backdrop of a series of historic events, Bridge of Spies tells the story of James Donovan, a Brooklyn lawyer who finds himself thrust into the center of the Cold War when the CIA sends him on a near impossible mission to negotiate the release of a captured American U-2 pilot. High stakes and suspense power a story inspired by true events that capture the essence of a man who risked everything and vividly brings his personal journey to life. Stars Tom Hanks, Mark Rylance, and Amy Ryan.
