The brainchild of 'Shaun of the Dead' co-creators Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright, 'Hot Fuzz' received strong critical notice and break-out box office during its limited theatrical run this spring. But as with 'Shaun,' the film should enjoy an even stronger audience when it hits HD DVD day-and-date with the standard DVD release.
Universal will grant the film the special edition treatment on high-def, with a 1080p/VC-1 transfer and Dolby Digital-Plus 5.1 surround (1.5mbps) soundtrack.
Extras are set to include audio commentary with Pegg and Wright, two making-of featurettes, deleted scenes, outtakes and more.
Universal has set a $39.98 list price for the HD DVD/DVD combo release.
We've added 'Hot Fuzz' to our HD DVD Release Schedule under July 24, where it joins 'Shaun of the Dead,' which Universal announced for next-gen release only last week.
