'Mr Magorium' Headed to Blu-ray

Posted Tue Jan 8, 2008 at 08:09 AM PST by Peter Bracke

In an early alert to retailers, Fox has revealed a March Blu-ray arrival for the family fantasy 'Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium.'

Although it hoped to capture the imagination in the way of such classics as 'Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory,' 'Mr. Magorium' failed to make much a dent at the fall box office (scoring a meager $25 million domestic gross). Fox will give the Dustin Hoffman-Natalie Portman starrer another shot when it debuts the flick on Blu-ray March 4, day-and-date with the standard DVD.

Due to the early nature of the retail announcement, there are no detailed specs yet available, aside from the Fox's standard 1080p video and DTS-HD Lossless Master Audio 5.1 Surround audio.

Suggested retail for the Blu-ray has been set at $39.98.
