In an early retailer announcement, 20th Century Fox has revealed 'The Big Year' is coming to Blu-ray on January 31.

Steve Martin, Jack Black, and Owen Wilson portray three men from very different walks of life, facing a mid-life crisis, a work-life crisis and a no-life crisis. In the biggest competition of their lives, they undertake an unforgettable trek through North America, engaging in hilarious and bizarre adventures and forming friendships that will last a lifetime!

Directed by David Frankel ('The Devil Wears Prada,' 'Marley & Me') and featuring outrageous supporting performances from Joel McHale (“Community”), Jim Parsons (“The Big Bang Theory”), Angelica Huston ('50/50'), Dianne Wiest (“In Treatment”), Brian Dennehy ('The Next Three Days'), Rashida Jones (“Parks and Recreation”), Kevin Pollak ('Red State') and Anthony Anderson ('Scream 4'),

The release will be a Blu-ray/DVD combo pack and will present the extended cut of the film in 1080p with a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include The Big Migration, deleted scenes, and a gag reel.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.99.
