UPDATE 08/15/08: We've received word from Disney that despite retailer reports, the studio has now pushed back the Blu-ray release date for 'Sin City' to sometime in early 2009. We've updated our database accordingly.

Early word has come from retailers that Disney is planning to bring a Robert Rodriguez double-header to Blu-ray this October, with the simultaneous bow of the cult hits 'Sin City' and 'From Dusk 'Til Dawn.'

Long-awaited by Blu-ray fans, both Rodriguez's 'From Dusk 'Til Dawn' and 'Sin City' (the latter co-directed by Frank Miller with "special guest director" Quentin Tarantino) have finally been given a retail date of October 21. (Both titles were previously-released on standard DVD in extensive special edition versions.)

As Disney has yet to formally announce either title, there are no tech specs or supplemental details as of yet. As always, we'll keep you posted.

Suggested retail price for each Blu-ray is $34.95 a pop.

As we await an official announcement, you'll find preliminary specs for 'Sin City' and 'From Dusk 'Til Dawn' linked from our Blu-ray Release Schedule, where they're indexed under October 21.
