HDNet Movies Sneak Preview - Experience exclusive broadcasts of new films before they hit theaters and DVD

OUTLAW - Premieres Wednesday, December 12th at 10:15pm, followed by an encore presentation at midnight
Directed by: Nick Love (THE BUSINESS, FOOTBALL FACTORY)
Written by: Nick Love
Starring: Sean Bean, Danny Dyer, Bob Hoskins, Lennie James

London: present day. In lawless streets the guilty are left unhindered to go about their business. Returning from a tour of
duty in Iraq, former Paratrooper Bryant (Sean Bean) is appalled by what he sees in a country he no longer recognizes. Determined to do something about it, he assembles a group of like-minded souls who resolve to restore the balance
between right and wrong, enforcing justice with a brutality to match that of the wrongdoers. But when the law of the land
is co-opted in this way, who decides when enough is enough?

The Birds, and the other Hitchcock films, are true HD premieres. NBCU has only supplied HDNet Movies with HD versions.

Somewhat off-topic, but I've read that HDNet will be airing "Redacted" 2 days before the limited national rollout, yet I can't find any listing for it??

Never mind, I see Karl mentions it in the Ultra VOD thread,

I'm sure you would know better but I could swear I saw it in HD about two months ago. I had never seen it and watched it most of the way through. Either way it's great that HDNet is doing so much Hitchcock.
