Sony has unveiled full specs for its April Blu-ray debut of 'The 6th Day,' promising multiple bonus features and the studio's first-ever D-Box motion control enhancement.

As we've previously reported, Sony has set an April 8 Blu-ray arrival for the Arnold Schwarzenegger sci-fi yarn, day-and-date with a new standard-def DVD re-issue.

Among the spate of just-announced supplements are the 9-part documentary "On the 6th Day...", the Showtime special "The Future is Coming," a set of storyboard comparisons and animatics, and a "RePet" mock infomercial and TV spot.

Exclusive to the Blu-ray will be D-Box enhancement, which marks the studio's first implementation of the home theater motion control technology (Fox and Disney have previously offered D-Box on select Blu-ray releases).

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

Finally, Sony has issued the final box art for 'The 6th Day,' which replicates the film's original theatrical key art:

As previously announced, suggested retail for the Blu-ray has been set at $28.95.
