Fox Home Entertainment has outlined specs for 'The Wrestler,' which is coming to Blu-ray this April with a minimal package of extras.

As previously reported, Fox will debut the highly-acclaimed Mickey Rourke comeback drama on Blu-ray April 21, day-and-date with the standard DVD.

Final specs are now in, with the film receiving a BD-50 dual-layer presentation with 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 video and a DTS-HD Lossless Master Audio 5.1 Surround track.

Extras are slim with only the "Within the Ring" featurette, a "Wrestler Round Table" discussion with cast & filmmaker, and a Bruce Springsteen music video for the title song.

Suggested retail price for the Blu-ray has been set at $39.99.

You'll find final specs for 'The Wrestler' linked from our Blu-ray Release Schedule, where it's indexed under April 21.
