Full details are in for the high-def release of the Asian horror hit 'The Host,' which Magnolia says it will unleash on Blu-ray and HD DVD this July.

Pre-release information had indicated only an HD DVD version of 'The Host,' but the studio has now officially announced that the title will make its debut on both next-gen formats simultaneous with standard-def DVD on July 24.

Tech specs are snot yet available, but the Blu-ray and HD DVD versions should see a wealth of matching supplements. Among the feastings are an audio commentary with the filmmakers, four featurettes, deleted scenes and a gag reel.

Magnolia has set a $34.95 list price for each version.

You'll find links to product pages for both titles (with full specs, including box art) in our Blu-ray Release Schedule and HD DVD Release Schedule, under July 24.
