Fox Delays 'Master & Commander' Blu-ray (Again)
Tags: Street Date Changes, Fox (all tags)
The Blu-ray release of 'Master & Commander' has hit more rough waters, with Fox delaying its planned February bow.
Originally pegged for a a high-def release on October 2, the studio eventually yanked the release citing last-minute production delays. Now Fox has pulled the plug on the Blu-ray for the second time, this time attributing the delay to marketing reasons.
Although the studio stopped short of issuing a new street date, a Fox rep tells us that it is realigning the Blu-ray release of 'Master & Commander' to coincide with an upcoming Father's Day promotion planned for the spring.
At press time there were no plans to alter the originally announced Blu-ray specs for 'Master & Commander' upon its eventual release.
The disc's retail price will also remain unchanged at a suggested $39.98 list.
In anticipation of a forthcoming new street date for 'Master & Commander,' we've moved the title to the "Release Dates Postponed" section of our Blu-ray Release Schedule. As always, we'll keep you posted...
