Universal Pictures Sets Feb. 22 Home Release Date for Female Spy Thriller ‘The 355’

Universal Pictures Home Entertainment has set a Feb. 22 digital, DVD and Blu-ray Disc release date for the female spy thriller The 355, which was released theatrically in early January and grossed just under $30 million at the box office.

The film also will be available to stream on Peacock that same day.

Directed by Simon Kinberg, with a screenplay from Theresa Rebeck and Kinberg, the films starts when a top-secret weapon falls into mercenary hands. A wild-card CIA agent, Mason “Mace” Brown (Jessica Chastain) joins forces with rival German agent Marie (Diane Kruger), former MI6 ally and cutting-edge computer specialist Khadijah (Lupita Nyong’o), and skilled Colombian psychologist Graciela (Penélope Cruz) on a lethal mission to retrieve it. The unlikely team must also stay one step ahead of a mysterious woman, Lin Mi Sheng (Bingbing Fan), who is tracking their every move as the action rockets across the globe.

Bonus features include:

  • Deleted scenes;
  • VFX breakdowns;
  • “Chasing Through Paris,” with cast and filmmakers discussing the first day of shooting on The 355 and how the choreographed chase sequence through the Parisian arcade set the tone for the entire production;
  • “Action That Hurts,” a behind-the-scenes look at the stunts featured in the film’s centerpiece action sequence;
  • “Reconstructing Marrakesh,” a documentary on the creation of the Moroccan set, from footage of construction to a set tour with production designer Simon Elliott; and
  • “Chaos at the City of Dreams,” in which cast and filmmakers deconstruct the film’s final set piece, from exploding ceilings to major shoot-outs, to the ultimate show-down fight between Chastian’s and Sebastian Stan’s characters.
