Fox has announced a late-January bow for 'The Rocker,' which will come to Blu-ray with hours of bonus features and Digital Copy

Despite initial retailer reports indicating a Blu-ray release this year, Fox has finally confirmed Blu-ray details for the Rainn Wilson comedy, which will finally make its next-gen bow on January 27 (day-and-date with the standard DVD).

The BD-50 dual-layer presentation will feature 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 video, a DTS-HD Lossless Master Audio 5.1 Surround track, and Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround dubs and subtitle options in English, French, and Spanish.

Extras boast a pair of audio commentaries with cast & crew, multiple featurettes ("Rainn Wilson: Office Rocker," "Pete Best Interview," "Behind The Band: Vesuvius," "Rock Beat With Fish Fishmanm," "The Music of The Rocker," "Rock Tales"), ten deleted scenes, a gag reel, MTV excerpts, a music video, exclusive podcasts and mock PSAs.

The set will also include a Digital Copy of the film compatible with PCs, PSP and iTunes.

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