MGM has unveiled complete specs (and a new release date) for 'Red Dawn,' but in news that's sure to disappoint fans, the title won't include a single extra.

As we first reported last month, the 'Red Dawn' Blu-ray was originally expected to street on November 6. Although no specs were available at the time, it was widely speculated that the release would include at least some of of the supplementary materials from the flick's 2-disc Collector's Edition DVD (which was released this past July).

Alas, we've just received the specs for 'Red Dawn,' and not only has the title been bumped two weeks to November 20th, but in keeping with MGM's recent practice of releasing bare bones-only Blu-ray versions its top catalog titles (see our just-posted Blu-ray review of 'RoboCop'), there will be no extras included on the release.

On the bright side, tech specs include 1080p video and a DTS-HD Lossless Master Audio 5.1 Surround track.

MGM has set an MSRP of $39.99.

As always, you'll find disc details for 'Red Dawn' linked from our Blu-ray Release Schedule, where it is indexed under its new date of November 20.
