In an early announcement to retailers, Paramount has revealed plans to bring a never-before-seen unrated version of the horror film 'The Ruins' to Blu-ray this Summer.

Based on the best-selling novel by Scott B. Smith, 'The Ruins' earned solid reviews but only managed to scrape up barely $20 million at the domestic box office. Paramount hopes to turn the film's fortunes around on Blu-ray July 8, when it hits stores day-and-date with the standard DVD.

Due to the early nature of the announcement, there are no tech specs or supplement details as of yet. We'll keep you posted.

Suggested retail price for the Blu-ray has been set at $39.98.

You'll find preliminary specs for 'The Ruins' linked from our Blu-ray Release Schedule, where it's indexed under July 8.
