Fox has announced updated details for the Blu-ray release of 'Jumper,' which will now add D-Box to its extras menu.

As previously reported, Fox has set a June 10 street date for the Hayden Christensen teleportation thriller (day-and-date with the standard DVD), and unveiled a complete line-up of specs with hours of extras.

D-Box combines real-life motion control of your home theater seating in sync with the on-screen action, and Fox will now enhance the 'Jumper' Blu-ray to deliver plenty of rumble during the film's famed teleportation and other action scenes.

Previously-announced supplements on the Blu-ray will feature audio commentary (with director Doug Liman, writer-producer Simon Kinberg and producer Lucas Foster), four featurettes ("Jumping From Novel To Film: The Past, Present & Future of Jumper," "Making an Actor Jump," "Doug Liman's Jumper: Uncensored," "Jumping Around The World"), six deleted scenes, "Future Concepts" pre-visuzalizations, and the animated graphic novel "Jumpstart: David's Story."

Exclusive to the Blu-ray will be the picture-in-picture feature "Jumping Around the World," which will make full use of the Blu-ray format's Profile 1.1 capabilities (a Profile 1.1-enabled player required).

Tech specs for the Blu-ray feature 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 video, English 5.1 DTS HD Loss less Master Audio plus English, French and Spanish Dolby 5.1 Surround, and Spanish, Cantonese, Korean, and Mandarin subtitles

As previously announced, Fox has set a suggested retail price of $39.98 for the Blu-ray.
