Sony to Debut 'Arlington Road,' 'Final Fantasy' on Blu-ray this August

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has announced its next wave of Blu-ray catalog releases due August 7, led by the hit thriller 'Arlington Road' and 'Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within'

A sleeper hit in theaters and a big seller on DVD, 'Arlington Road' will see a streamlined Blu-ray release in terms of extras, featuring only a lone making-of featurette but none of the audio commentaries and other bonus material that graced the standard-def version.

'Final Fantasy,' however, will come loaded with supplements. Among the copious bonus materials bound for Blu-ray are multiple audio commentaries, an interactive documentary, additional featurettes, deleted footage, "joke" outtakes, and more.

Both titles will receive full 1080p transfers and uncompressed PCM 5.1 surround tracks (48kHz/16-bit/4.6mbps).

Sony has set a suggested retail price of $28.95 for each release.
