Universal has attached a new video trailer to this month's DVD release of 'Battlestar Galactica: Caprica,' previewing a first look at a still-unscheduled box set of the show's complete series for Blu-ray release.

Now arriving in stores, the direct-to-video 'Battlestar'-inspired movie 'Caprica' contains a video promo before its main menu. The spot heralds an upcoming complete series release of the cult sensation, complete with featurettes, deleted scenes, additional features, and an uncut version of the movie 'Razor.'

The spot ends by advertising the still-unnamed set as "Coming Soon to DVD and Blu-ray High-Def," though no exact release date is given.

The promo follows weeks of Internet rumor and speculation, including reports of a July 28 street date for both the Blu-ray and DVD versions.

At press time, there is no further official information available from Universal about what is sure to be one of the year's most eagerly-anticipated Blu-ray TV-on-high-def releases. We'll definitely keep you posted as soon as further word comes from the studio.

In the meantime, we've added a listing for 'Battlestar Galactica' to the "Release Dates Pending" section of our Blu-ray Release Schedule. Stay tuned!
