Posted Mon Feb 23, 2009 at 08:00 AM PST by Peter Bracke

The latest Best Picture nominee to get a Blu-ray release, Universal has announced a late-April arrival for 'Frost/Nixon.'

Starring Frank Langella as Nixon and Michael Sheen as journalist Frost, the acclaimed drama from Ron Howard (which missed out on the coveted award at last night's ceremony) will hit Blu-ray on April 21 (day-and-date with the standard DVD).

Tech specs will see a BD-50 dual-layer disc with 1080p video and DTS-HD Lossless Master Audio 5.1 Surround.

Extras shared with the DVD include audio commentary with Howard, three featurettes ("The Making of Frost/Nixon," "The Real Interview," "The Nixon Library") and deleted scenes.

Exclusive to the Blu-ray are several Bonus View features, including picture-in-picture and "The Nixon Files" historical facts, an additional featurette ("Discovering Secrets: The People and Places Behind the Story") and the BD-Live "Download Center" with additional content.

Suggested retail price for the Blu-ray has been set at $34.98.
