Fox Double Dips 'Dodgeball' with Rated Blu-ray

Posted Wed Mar 4, 2009 at 10:00 AM PST by Peter Bracke

In a rare double dip for the studio, Fox has announced it will re-issue 'Dodgeball' on Blu-ray this May in a "Rated" version.

The $100 million-grossing Ben Stiller hit, which Fox previously released on Blu-ray in 2007 in its unrated form, will debut a separate stand-alone version on May 12, featuring the film's PG-13 theatrical cut.

Only basic tech specs have been confirmed, including 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 video and an English DTS-HD Lossless Master Audio 5.1 Surround soundtrack.

There's no word yet on bonus features (if any), but we'll keep you posted.

Suggested retail price for the Blu-ray has been set at $29.99.
