Caught in the crossfires of civil war, CIA operatives must send a former American diplomat on a mission to negotiate for the life of a friend he left behind. From the writer of The Bourne Trilogy comes the “tense and ever-twisting” (Chicago Sun-Times) dramatic thriller Beirut , available on Digital and the all-new digital movie app Movies Anywhere on June 19, 2018, and on Blu-ray™,
DVD and On Demand on July 3, 2018, from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. Featuring an exciting behind-the-scenes look at the making of the film with former CIA officer Whitley Bruner, Beirut on Blu-ray™, DVD and Digital, takes fans even deeper into the historical period of this heart pounding story.

Golden Globe® winner Jon Hamm (“Mad Men”, Baby Driver) stars as Mason Skiles, a former U.S. diplomat, who gets sent to Beirut to negotiate a swap for the release of a terrorist leader, believed to be imprisoned by Israeli secret police, in exchange for a CIA agent who has been kidnapped. Confronted by ghosts from his past, Mason faces a formidable question: Who do you trust in a world where the truth emerges only when it’s convenient – or profitable?

Directed by Brad Anderson (The Machinist), produced and written by Tony Gilroy (The Bourne Franchise, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story), the critically acclaimed film also stars Academy Award® nominee Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl) and Screen Actors Guild Award® winner Dean Norris (“Breaking Bad”).
