In an early alert to retailers, Fox has set a July bow for the Keanu Reeves-Patrick Swayze cult classic 'Point Break.'

Although the Kathryn Bigelow action caper was not a huge hit during its original 1991 theatrical release, it has since gone on to be one of Fox's biggest catalog sellers on DVD.

The studio has set a long-awaited July 1 Blu-ray bow for 'Point Break,' dubbing it the "Pure Adrenaline Edition."

The Blu-ray is set to share the same extras with the previous standard DVD edition released back in 2006, including four making-of featurettes (with fresh interviews with Swayze and other cast members), eight deleted scenes, and a still gallery.

Tech specs for the high-def version enjoy 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 video, a DTS-HD Lossless Master Audio 5.1 Surround track, and additional Dolby Digital and subtitle tracks in English, French, and Spanish.

Suggested retail for the Blu-ray has been set at $39.98.
