New Line/Warner Announce 'Inkheart' Blu-ray/DVD Combo

Posted Mon Apr 13, 2009 at 08:00 AM PDT by Peter Bracke

New Line/Warner will bring the family fantasy 'Inkheart' to Blu-ray this June as a three-disc combo with DVD and Digital Copy.

Despite New Line hoping for 'Journey of the Center of the Earth 3-D'-level grosses for the Brendan Frasier adventure, 'Inkheart' limped to a meager $17 million domestic box office gross.

New Line, via Warner Home Video, will release the Blu-ray June 23, day-and-date with the standard DVD.

Tech specs will see a BD-50 dual-layer presentation with 1080p/VC-1 video (2.40:1) and English Dolby TrueHD 5.1 Surround audio.

Extras include a trio of featurettes ("Eliza Reads to Us," "A Story from the Cast and Crew," "From Imagination to the page: How writers Write") and deleted scenes.

Two additional discs in the set will include a DVD and Digital Copy of the film, the latter compatible with PCs and iTunes.

Suggested list price has been set at $38.95.
