Sony Pictures has announced a mid-February Blu-ray release for the Academy Award-winning domestic drama 'Kramer vs. Kramer.'

Snagging Oscars for Best Picture, Best Director (Robert Benton) and stars Dustin Hoffman and Meryl Streep, the critically acclaimed box office hit will receive its high-def premiere on February 17. (Sony previously released a special edition DVD in 2003.)

Tech specs will feature a BD-50 dual-layer presentation with 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 video and English Dolby TrueHD 5.1 Surround audio.

No word yet on extras, but a package comparable to the special edition DVD appears likely. We'll keep you posted.

Suggested retail price for the Blu-ray has been set at $28.95.
