Sony Pictures has just revealed final specs for 'The International,' which comes to Blu-ray this June with hours of bonus features, exclusive content and Digital Copy.

As previously reported, Sony set a June 9 Blu-ray release for the Clive Owen-Naomi Watts actioner (day-and-date with the standard DVD), but issued no specs or other information.

Full details have now been issued, with the box office underachiever receiving a BD-50 dual-layer presentation with 1080/AVC MPEG-4 video and English Dolby TrueHD 5.1 Surround audio.

Extras include audio commentary (with director Tom Tykwer and screenwriter Eric Singer), a quartet of featurettes ("The Making of The International," "Shooting at the Guggenheim," "The Autostadt," "The Architecture of The International") and deleted scenes.

Just-confirmed exclusive content boasts a picture-in-picture track with behind-the-scenes footage and interviews, and BD-Live connectivity.

A second, standard DVD disc is also included with Digital Copy, compatible with PCs, PSP, and iTunes.

Finally, Sony has provided a high-res preview of newly-revised final Blu-ray box art for 'The International':

Suggested retail price for the Blu-ray has been set at $39.95.
