'Gantz' Announced for Blu-ray... and HD DVD??!

Posted Mon May 16, 2011 at 10:00 AM PDT by

The live-action adaptation of the Japanese anime looks to be available in a combo pack (which seems to include a disc from the defunct format) this August!

In an early announcement to retailers, Warner Brothers says 'Gantz' will have a Blu-ray release on August 30.

The story follows two teens who try to rescue a man on the subway tracks and wake up in a room dominated by a mysterious black sphere that sends them to hunt down and kill aliens hiding on Earth.

The release will apparently be a three disc set (Blu-ray/HD DVD/DVD) with 1080p video, Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtracks in English and Japanese, and supplements will include interviews and a trailer.

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