The 'Field of Dreams' is coming to Blu-ray, with Universal announcing a late-May release for the modern classic.

Widely considered one of the most beloved movies of the '80s, the Kevin Costner inspirational baseball drama will receive its Blu-ray premiere on May 26 (Universal previously released the film on HD DVD in 2007).

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

Extras will see a direct port of the previous HD DVD, including audio commentary with Phil Alden Robinson, a spate of retrospective featurettes, a still gallery and more.

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