Due day-and-date with the standard DVD release, Paramount Home Entertainment will release 'World Trade Center' on both Blu-ray and HD DVD in time for the holidays.

Though Paramount previously hinted that Oliver Stone's controversial 9/11 drama would hit high-def later this year, the studio has officially announced a December 12 street date for the release.

No tech specs or supplement details are available as of yet, though Paramount did confirm that 'World Trade Center' will be the studio's first BD-50 dual-layer Blu-ray release.

The studio has also set a $39.95 list price for each edition.
