Universal Studios Home Video is reportedly planning to bring the summer blockbuster 'Knocked Up' to HD DVD this September, day-and-date with the standard-def DVD release.

Video Business has the early details, with Universal apparently planning to debut the summer comedy smash -- which has grossed over $140 million at the domestic box office and counting -- in R-rated and Unrated versions, the latter boasting an additional four minutes of unseen footage.

The HD DVD release is expected to include both versions of the film on a HD DVD/DVD combo disc(the unrated version in high-def, and the R-rated version on the standard-def flipside), as well as extensive extras still to be announced.

Though Universal has yet to announce an exact street date, the studio has issued a "pre-book" date (the date that retailers must place orders to ensure all copies are fulfilled) of August 14. Based on usual pre-book patterns, that would give 'Knocked Up' a likely release window of sometime in the September/October timeframe.

As always, we'll keep you posted as soon as Universal officially announces 'Knocked Up' for high-def release.

In the meantime, we've added a new listing for the title to the "Release Dates Pending" section of our HD DVD Release Schedule. Stay tuned!
