gladiatorParamount Home Entertainment (PHE) announced today that it will release some of the greatest films ever made for the first time in high definition as part of its exclusive new "Sapphire Series". The Sapphire Series will capitalize on the pristine picture and sound of the Blu-ray format to present each cinematic gem in the highest quality for the first time in two-disc, high definition sets*. The series will kick off on September 1 with two of the most requested Blu-ray releases, Braveheart and Gladiator--both winners of five Academy Awards(R) including Best Picture--followed later in the year by six-time Academy Award(R) winner Forrest Gump.  Each release will include extensive, never-before-seen special features for the ultimate presentation.
