Full specs have finally surfaced for Warner's HD DVD version of 'Poseidon,' which will hit stores with Dolby TrueHD and exclusive HD content.

Due for release on December 5 as a HD DVD/DVD combo disc, the $150 million-budgeted would-be blockbuster -- which famously imploded at the box office this past summer -- will enjoy a 1080p/VC-1 video transfer and full Dolby TrueHD 5.1 surround track.

Extras include all the same goodies as the standard DVD release, plus Warner's latest "In-Movie Experience" video commentary, this time hosted by 'Poseidon's star, Josh Lucas, and featuring additional never-before-seen production footage.

Note that despite persistent rumors over the past several weeks that the HD DVD version of 'Poseidon' would also include an expanded "Director's Cut" of the film, the disc specs delivered by Warner indicate only the 98-minute theatrical version. We'll certainly keep you posted if the news changes.

List price for 'Poseidon' is $39.95.
