Fox Conjures Up 'Eragon' on Blu-ray This March; 'Night as the Museum' Circling April

Posted Mon Feb 12, 2007 at 11:53 AM PST by

In a late-breaking announcement, Fox Home Entertainment will bring the family fantasy 'Eragon' to Blu-ray in a speedy late March release, with the blockbuster 'Night at the Museum' targeted for early April.

In what Video Business is reporting was apparently a surprise to retailers, Fox has offered little lead time in announcing the hit 'Eragon' for a March 20 debut on Blu-ray, simultaneous with the standard-def DVD version.

No specs yet, though with a two-disc standard-def DVD edition being offered, the Blu-ray version should contain at least some extras.

Retail for 'Eragon' has been set at $39.95.

And though it has not yet received an official release date, Video Business is also reporting that the huge $225 million-grossing 'Night at the Museum' is currently on track for early April from Fox, both on Blu-ray and standard-def DVD. The title was originally expected to take 'Eragon's March 20th slot. We'll certainly keep you posted when the title is officially announced.

The latest specs for "Eragon' and all upcoming Blu-ray titles can be found in our comprhensive Blu-ray Release Schedule.
