Universal Studios has announced an early-March Blu-ray debut for the Oscar-winning 'Brokeback Mountain.'
Originally released on HD DVD in early 2007, Universal will play catch up with the highly-acclaimed drama when it releases the Heath Ledger-Jake Gyllenhaal starrer on Blu-ray March 3.
Tech specs will see a BD-50 dual-layer disc with 1080p/VC-1 video and English DTS-HD Lossless Master Audio 5.1 Surround.
Extras will match the previous HD DVD and DVD special editions, with a wealth of making-of featurettes: "A Groundbreaking Success," "Music From the Mountain," "Impressions From the Film," "On Being a Cowboy," "Directing From the Heart: Ang Lee," "From Script to Screen" and "Sharing the Story: The Making of Brokeback Mountain."
The Blu-ray will also come BD-Live-enabled, and with the My Scenes bookmarking feature.
Suggested retail price for the Blu-ray has been set at $34.99.
