As previously reported, Fox will release the Michael Douglas-Kathleen Turner starrers concurrently on October 14 as stand-alone releases, timed day-and-date with new standard DVD re-issues.
Now the full specs are in, with a wealth of newly-produced bonus materials that should please fans.
Extras on 'Romancing the Stone' include a suite of four featurettes ("Rekindling The Romance: A Look Back," "A Hidden Treasure: The Screenwriter," "Douglas, Turner and DeVito: Favorite Scenes," "Michael Douglas Remembers") and eight deleted scenes.
'Jewel of the Nile' features an audio commentary by director Lewis Teague, a pair of featurettes ("Romancing The Nile: A Winning Sequel," "Adventures of a Romance Novelist"), six deleted scenes and the original theatrical trailer.
Tech specs are identical on each release, with a BD-50 dual-layer presentation with 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 video (2.35:1) and DTS-HD Lossless Master Audio 5.1 Surround tracks.
Suggested retail price for the Blu-rays has been set at $39.98 a pop.
