Universal has announced its latest "catch up" title for Blu-ray, setting a late-May date for the Russell Crowe starrer 'Cinderella Man.'

Boasting one of the worst taglines in recent history ("You will LOVE Cinderella Man!"), Universal previously released the Ron Howard-directed boxing drama on HD DVD in 2006. The Blu-ray version has been marked for a May 26 street date.

Tech specs will see a BD-50 dual-layer presentation with 1080p video (2.35:1) and Dolby TrueHD 5.1 Surround audio.

All of the bonus features found on the HD DVD will also be included, among them audio commentary, nearly a dozen making-of featurettes, deleted scenes, and a photo montage.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray has been set at $29.99.

You'll find the latest specs for 'Cinderella Man' linked from our Blu-ray Release Schedule, where it's indexed under May 26.
