Fans of 'I, Robot' will have to wait a few more months for the Will Smith flick to hit Blu-ray, but Fox says they'll be rewarded for their patience.

Although it had been scheduled to hit Blu-ray on November 13, rumors of a possible delay had been circulating for the last month. On Monday, Fox confirmed a street date bump for the title until sometime in the first half of 2008, attributing the delay to the addition of new content.

Among the features now planned for the BD-50 disc are several audio commentaries, a an annotated fact track, a searchable content index, a D-Box enhanced audio track, and a series of "Behind the Camera" featurettes, which will be delivered via seamless branching.

Additionally, the studio is promising a new "dual-menu navigation system" for the title, which it says will allow for easier access to the disc's bonus features.

Other tech specs will include the studio's standard 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 transfer, plus DTS-HD Master Audio.

Needless to say, we'll let you know as soon as Fox announces a new street date for 'I, Robot.' In the meantime, you find the title safely tucked away in the "Release Dates Pending" section of our Blu-ray release schedule.
