'Air Force One' is coming to Blu-ray, with Sony announcing an early-June release for the smash Harrison Ford thriller.

Currently atop IMDB's poll of top movie presidents, Ford will battle terrorists ("Get off my plane!") in high-def on June 2, when Sony gives the Wolfgang Petersen-directed blockbuster it's first-ever Blu-ray release.

Tech specs will see a BD-50 dual-layer presentation with 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 video (2.35:1) and Dolby TrueHD 5.1 Surround audio in both English and French.

There's no word on bonus features as of yet, but we'll keep you posted.
