'Skyline' Blu-ray Best Buy Exclusive

Posted Wed Feb 9, 2011 at 08:00 AM PST by

If you want to pick up this sci-fi thriller on a Blu-ray/DVD flipper disc, you'll have to head down to Best Buy in March.

As previously reported, Universal has slated 'Skyline' for Blu-ray on March 15.

Now Best Buy has listed a flipper disc version available on the same date.

It was supposed to be a simple birthday weekend in Southern California. But when sunrise arrives two hours early in the form of a haunting light from an unknown source, a group of friends watch in terror as people across the city are drawn outside and swept into massive alien ships that have blotted out the L.A. skyline. From tankers to drones and hydra-like extraterrestrials, the aliens are inescapable and seemingly indestructible. Now, it will take every survival instinct the group has to elude capture in this riveting, action-packed sci-fi adventure starring Eric Balfour ('The Texas Chainsaw Massacre'), Donald Faison ("Scrubs") and Scottie Thompson ('Star Trek').

The Blu-ray will feature 1080p, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include: Commentary by directors Greg and Colin Strause; Commentary with co-writer/producer Liam O'Donnell and co-writer Joshua Cordes; Deleted, Extended, and Alternate Scenes; Pre-viz clips; and Trailers.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $39.98, while the Best Buy exclusive is set at $29.99.
