Bringing another top catalog title to its growing next-gen line-up, Paramount Home Entertainment will unveil a new special edition of the action blockbuster 'Face/Off' this August.
The 1997 Nicolas Cage-John Travolta smash hit was one the biggest sellers for the studio in the early days of DVD. Now, they will finally give the film the long-awaited retrospective treatment, with a new "Collector's Special Edition" due day-and-date on DVD, Blu-ray and HD DVD on August 28.
Unfortunately, there are no specs yet available for the release.
Paramount has only specified a $29.95 list price for both the Blu-ray and HD DVD versions, so we'll keep you posted as more news comes in.
'Face/Off' also joins a recent spurt of new next-gen announcements from the studio, who seem intent on making it one crowded (and expensive) season for early adopters. In the past few weeks, they have unveiled a flurry of top catalog releases, including such gems as 'Ghost,' 'An Officer and a Gentleman,' 'The Warriors' and 'The Untouchables,' all due this summer.
