My Best Friend's Wedding

Marking the first appearance of a Julia Roberts romantic comedy on Blu-ray, Sony will release a pair of the star's top hits this Fall.

Due in stores on September 30 are the Roberts' blockbuster 'My Best Friend's Wedding,' and her distaff update of 'Dead Poet's Society,' 'Mona Lisa Smile.'

Each stand-alone release will feature a BD-50 dual-layer presentation with 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 video and Dolby TrueHD 5.1 Surround audio.

Extras on 'My Best Friend's Wedding' will mirror the previous special edition DVD release, with a trio of featurettes ("On the Set:," "Unveiled," "Wedding Do's & Don'ts"), a "Say a Little Prayer" sing-along, and the "My Best Friend's Wedding Album" still gallery.

There are no announced extras on 'Mona Lisa Smile.'

Suggested list price for each Blu-ray has been set at $28.95 a pop.
