Disney has apparently made a New Year's resolution to reschedule all of its previously-delayed Blu-ray action titles, issuing a January 8, 2008 release date for 'Con Air.'

As we reported earlier this morning, 'Con Air' was one of a trio of action titles (alongside 'The Rock' and 'Crimson Tide') that were originally scheduled for release this past June, only to be subsequently yanked from the studio's schedule with no new dates in the offing.

Now, after weeks of rumors, the studio has confirmed that 'Con Air' will be among its first 2008 Blu-ray titles, hitting store shelves on January 8, the same date as 'The Rock.' (Note that the studio has yet to confirm a date for the third title in the trio, 'Crimson Tide,' but it's currently expected sometime in February).

A full press release with complete details for 'Con Air' is due shortly, but Disney did tell us that the disc will include the studio's usual 1080p video and an uncompressed PCM 5.1 Surround track (at 48kHz/24-bit).

There are no supplemental details available yet, but we'll certainly keep you posted.

Retail for the Blu-ray will list for $29.99.

As always, you'll find the latest disc details for 'Con Air' linked from our Blu-ray Release Schedule, where it is indexed under its new date of January 8, 2008.
