The Criterion Collection has announced its latest Blu-ray title, setting a late-January date for 'El Norte.'

Directed by Gregory Nava, the critically-acclaimed immigrant drama will receive its Blu-ray premiere on January 20. (Criterion previously-released the film on standard DVD as a special edition.)

There are no tech or supplement specs as of yet, but a package comparable to the DVD version is expected. We'll keep you posted.

Suggested retail price for the Blu-ray has been set at $39.95.
