Fox Previews 'Taken' Blu-ray, Promises 2-Disc Extended Cut

Posted Thu Mar 26, 2009 at 12:00 PM PDT by Peter Bracke

In a rare pre-announcement tease, Fox Home Entertainment says it is planning a Spring next-gen release for the surprise blockbuster 'Taken,' and has previewed the Blu-ray's box art.

Though the studio stopped short of issuing an exact street date for the $100 million-plus grossing thriller (which is still in theaters), it's promising a Blu-ray edition rumored for sometime in the month of May , day-and-date with a standard-def DVD.

There are no tech or supplement specs to report, but the studio has revealed a sneak peek at the Blu-ray box art, which promises a 2-disc set and an extended version of the film.

We also don't yet have a suggested list price for the Blu-ray, but the full official announcement is expected in the coming days. Needless to say, watch this space.

In anticipation of a confirmed street date and final details for 'Taken,' we've added a listing for the title in the "Release Dates Pending" section of our Blu-ray Release Schedule. Stay tuned!
