'Earthquake' Blu-ray Dated

Posted Wed Mar 20, 2013 at 01:00 PM PDT by

The 1974 disaster movie will shake up high-definition this summer.

In an early announcement to retailers, Universal says 'Earthquake' is coming to Blu-ray on June 4.

Charlton Heston leads an all-star cast in an epic film about ordinary citizens who must come together in the face of an unstoppable natural disaster. When the most catastrophic earthquake of all time rips through Southern California, it levels Los Angeles and sends shockwaves through the lives of all who live there. Now strangers must become heroes as the city struggles to get to its feet before the next terrifying aftershock hits. Also starring Ava Gardner, George Kennedy, Lorne Greene, Victoria Principal, Geneviève Bujold and Richard Roundtree, Earthquake combines outstanding performances with Academy Award-winning sound and then-groundbreaking special effects.

The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and there doesn't appear to be any supplements.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $19.98.
