'Poseidon' to Turn Upside-Down This December

Poseidon The first of this summer's big-budget event pictures to hit HD DVD, Warner Home Video has set a December 5 sail date for the box office underachiever 'Poseidon.'

Though the Wolfgang Petersen-directed remake of the 1970 classic action-adventure film 'The Poseidon Adventure' failed to achieve blockbuster status earlier this summer (grossing a modest $60 million at the domestic box office), Warner will give the film lavish treatment on HD DVD. Boasting the same extras as the two-disc standard DVD edition (due a full four months earlier on August 22), the set will include three in-depth documentaries on the making of the film, a History Channel television special, theatrical trailers and more to be announced.

Warner will also present the film in 1080p video with English and French Dolby Digital-Plus soundtracks.

Retail for the HD DVD version will be $34.99.
