Fox Readies 'Alien vs. Predator: Requiem' Blu-ray
Tags: Disc Announcements, Fox (all tags)
Confirming earlier speculation. Fox has alerted retailers that it plans to bring 'Alien vs. Predator: Requiem' to Blu-ray this April.
Word first surfaced of a 'AVPR' Blu-ray release at CES last month, when Fox previewed some of the bonus features planned for the disc, including a BD-Live-based interactive game. Anticipation was further stoked only days later when Fox announced an April 15 Blu-ray debut for the original 'Predator' -- a date which promised to be an obvious cross-promotional launch for the latest big-screen installment.
Now Fox has confirmed to retailers that the dueling species of 'Requiem' will indeed attack Blu-ray on April 15, day-and-date with the standard-def DVD.
With a full media announce still waiting in the wings, there are no further supplemental details or tech specs just yet, but we'll keep you posted.
Suggested retail price for the Blu-ray will be $39.98.
