Fox Home Entertainment is planning to bring the war drama 'Home of the Brave' to Blu-ray this October, day-and-date with the standard-def DVD version.

Despite the marquee names of Samuel L. Jackson, Jessica Biel and rap superstar 50 Cent, 'Home of the Brave' registered barely a blip on the box office radar in its limited theatrical run in late 2006, barely eking out a total domestic gross of -- no joke -- approximately $43,753.

The film will essentially become a direct-to-video premiere when Fox debuts it on Blu-ray day-and-date with the DVD on October 23.

As Fox has so far only issued the date to retail, we've yet to find out what -- if any -- supplementary materials will be included, but early tech specs include the studio's standard 1080p widescreen video and DTS-HD Lossless Master Audio in 5.1 surround.

Retail will list for $39.98.

While we wait for final details to come in, we've added a new listing for 'Home of the Brave' to our Blu-ray Release Schedule where it joins other just-announced Fox releases including 'The Hills Have Eyes 2' and 'Mr. Brooks' under October 23.
