Paramount is rolling out the high-def red carpet for 'World Trade Center,' with the studio planning lavish two-disc Blu-ray and HD DVD versions loaded with exclusive content.

As originally announced last week, Paramount will release the Oliver Stone film on both next-gen formats simultaneous with the standard-def DVD version on December 12.

Both the Blu-ray and HD DVD editions will be two-disc sets, with the Blu-ray boasting a BD-50 dual-layer disc for the main feature.

In addition to all the same extras as the standard def DVD version, including two audio commentaries with Oliver Stone and the real-life 9/11 survivors depicted in the film and nine deleted scenes, bonus HD content exclusive to both the Blu-ray and HD DVD versions boasts four featurettes, a still gallery, a theatrical trailer and TV spots.

Paramount has set a $39.95 list price for each version of 'World Trade Center.'

Updated specs for both have been added to our HD DVD Release Schedule, and Blu-ray Release Schedule.

We also set up dedicated threads for both editions in our new Forums area -- click the following links to discuss the 'World Trade Center' Blu-ray release and the 'World Trade Center' HD DVD release.
