Paramount Home Entertainment has announced street date bumps of almost a month for its upcoming dual-format releases of 'Face/Off' and 'The Jack Ryan Collection.'

'The Jack Ryan Collection,' featuring all four films in the blockbuster franchise ('The Hunt for Red October,' 'Patriot Games,' 'Clear and Present Danger' and 'Sum of All Fears') was originally announced for a September 25 bow on both Blu-ray and HD DVD. A new special collector's edition of 'Face/Off' was first scheduled for an August debut on the two next-gen formats, and then later bumped back to September 11.

Now both titles have brand-new high-def street dates, with 'The Jack Ryan Collection' due first on October 23, followed one week later by 'Face/Off' on October 30.

All preliminary tech specs and supplemental details remain unchanged, although Paramount tells us that they've not completely finalized the bonus features to be included on the releases, so look for more complete information in the coming weeks.

List price for 'Face/Off' is a $29.95, while 'The Jack Ryan Collection' will go for $99.95.

As always, you'll find updated listings for both titles in our Blu-ray release schedule and our HD DVD release schedule .
