Paramount Schedules 'Defiance' Blu-ray for June

Posted Fri Mar 20, 2009 at 10:00 AM PDT by Peter Bracke

Paramount is bringing 'Defiance' to Blu-ray, setting an early-June arrival for the WWII drama.

Starring Daniel Craig in the real-life tale of four Jewish brothers who join the Russian resistance to fight the Nazis, 'Defiance' earned a little less than $30 million during its fairly brief theatrical run last December.

Paramount will debut the Ed Zwick-directed drama on Blu-ray June 2, day-and-date with the standard DVD.

Tech specs will see a BD-50 dual-layer presentation with 1080p video (1.85:1) and English Dolby TrueHD 5.1 Surround audio.

There are no confirmed extras as of yet, but stay tuned.

Suggested retail price for the Blu-ray has been set at $39.99.

You'll find the latest specs for 'Defiance' linked from our Blu-ray Release Schedule, where it's indexed under June 2.
