The year's most anticipated cinematic event reaches DVD and Blu-ray on 1 November as HBO Home Entertainment releases THE PACIFIC in special collectors' edition metal tin box sets.

Executively produced by Tom Hanks, Steven Spielberg and Gary Goetzman, THE PACIFIC sees Hollywood's most-respected names reunite to uncover the true stories behind one of history's epic conflicts and create the ideal companion to their phenomenally successful Band of Brothers.

The heroic ten-part adventure tracks the intertwined real-life journeys of three U.S Marines - Robert Leckie (James Badge Dale), Eugene Sledge (Joe Mazzello) and John Basilone (Jon Seda) - across the vast canvas of the Pacific Theatre during World War II. From the very first scene witness the reality of war with disorientating and historical accuracy, set against a breath-taking and often harrowing backdrop. The series follows these men and their fellow comrades from their first battle with the Japanese on Guadalcanal, through the rain forests of Cape Gloucester and the strongholds of Peleliu, across the bloody sands of Iwo Jima and through the horror of Okinawa, and finally to their triumphant but uneasy return home after V-J Day.

The critically acclaimed HBO mini-series comes from the team behind the Emmy® and Golden Globe® winning 'Band of Brothers', credited as the biggest-selling TV DVD box set of all time, proving a ratings smash for Sky Movies as well as being universally lauded by critics.

Costing an incredible $200m to create, THE PACIFIC is a cinematic blockbuster for the small screen, representing a revolution in television and further cements HBO's position as a pioneer of innovative and challenging programming.

Currently available to pre-order online at Amazon, Play.com & HMV.co.uk, THE PACIFIC will be released on DVD and Blu-Ray in a beautifully packaged six disc presentation tin from 1 November 2010.
