After hovering over the Blu-ray release schedule for weeks, Fox Home Entertainment's has officially slotted an April 24 arrival for the Ben Stiller blockbuster 'Night at the Museum.'

An effects-laden family-friendly adventure, 'Museum' scored over $200 million at the domestic box office alone, making it one of 2006's biggest hits. It has also been one of the most eagerly-anticipated Blu-ray releases of the season, as it is sure to be one of the format's biggest-ever sellers.

Fox, however, is planning a somewhat restrained Blu-ray version of the film -- at least compared to its extensive, two-disc standard-def DVD counterpart (which is also hitting stores on the same day).

Presented on a BD-25 single-layer disc, tech specs include a 1080p transfer and English DTS-HD Lossless Master Audio 5.1 surround track (plus optional Dolby 5.1 dubs in French and Spanish).

Extras include two audio commentaries, the first with director Shawn Levy and the second with co-screenwriters Robert Ben Garant and Thomas Lennon, a Blu-ray-exclusive trivia track, and theatrical trailers.

Retail will list for $39.95.

We've added complete specs for 'Night at the Museum,' including box art, to our Blu-ray Release Schedule under April 24.
