Posted Thu Jul 14, 2011 at 10:00 AM PDT by

The HMS Bounty will set sail once again on Blu-ray this November!

In an early announcement to retailers, Warner Brothers will be releasing 'Mutiny on the Bounty (1962)' on Blu-ray on November 8.

The film directed by Lewis Milestone and starring Marlon Brando, Trevor Howard, and Richard Harris was nominated for seven Oscars including Best Effects, Best Cinematography, and Best Picture.

The Bounty leaves Portsmouth in 1787. Its destination: to sail to Tahiti and load bread-fruit. Captain Bligh will do anything to get there as fast as possible, using any means to keep up a strict discipline. When they arrive at Tahiti, it is like a paradise for the crew, something completely different than the living hell on the ship. On the way back to England, officer Fletcher Christian becomes the leader of a mutiny.

Specs have yet to be revealed, but supplements will include: Alternate Prologue and Epilogue Sequences Not Seen Theatrically; After the Cameras Stopped Rolling: The Journey of the Bounty (2006 Featurette); 1964 New York World's Fair Promo; Story of the HMS Bounty; Tour of the Bounty; Voyage of the Bounty to St. Petersburg; and Theatrical Trailer.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $19.98.
