Fox Home Entertainment has officially announced 'The Towering Inferno,' which will alight Blu-ray this July with hours of bonus features.

As previously reported, the studio had set a July 14 Blu-ray street date for the Irwin Allen disaster classic, but stopped short of issuing any specs.

Full details are now in, with the Best Picture Oscar nominee receiving the BD-50 dual-layer treatment, with 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 video (2.35:1) and English DTS-HD Lossless Master Audio 51. Surround and Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround tracks.

Among the extensive extras are three audio commentary tracks with FX supervisors, multiple making-of featurettes, no less than 32 deleted and extended scenes (including an alternate ending), a vintage 1977 Irwin Allen interview, storyboards, still galleries and theatrical trailers.

Suggested retail price for the Blu-ray has been set at $34.95.
