'Raise the Titanic' to Surface on Blu-ray

Posted Tue Nov 26, 2013 at 08:00 AM PST by

The 1980 adventure from Director Jerry Jameson will surface on Blu-ray in January.

In an early announcement to retailers, Shout Factory is working on 'Raise the Titanic' for Blu-ray on January 21.

Join the underwater race to salvage the Titanic and its vital defense cargo. Adapted from Clive Cussler's international best-seller, the story follows the exploits of American special agent Dirk Pitt as he sets out to recover vital material from the Titanic which could make the US impregnable to atomic attack. The ship is down too deep for divers and the only solution is to raise it. The incredible project must be managed in absolute secrecy because of deadly interference from a rival nation. The Titanic is finally, and majestically, brought to the surface -- but the vital, rare mineral is missing...

Specs have yet to be revealed, but supplements for the Blu-ray/DVD combo pack will include a making-of featurette and a trailer.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $19.97.
