Receiving its first-ever special edition video release, Warner has announced an early-October Blu-ray bow for the 1981 erotic thriller 'Body Heat.'

Considered one of the best modern noirs and the film that turned William Hurt and Kathleen Turner into superstars, 'Body Heat' will receive its first-ever special edition treatment on October 7, when Warner debuts the film day-and-date on Blu-ray and DVD.

Newly remastered, tech specs include a BD-50 dual-layer presentation with 1080p/VC-1 video and English Dolby TrueHD 5.1 Surround audio.

The newly-produced extras include a suite of three featurettes ("The Plan," "The Production," "The Post-Production") with all-new interviews with Hurt, Turner, and director Lawrence Kasdan, deleted scenes, and archival 1981 cast & crew interviews.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray has been set at $28.95.
