Joining the list of already announced high-def disc-related sessions planned for this year's Comic-Con, Lionsgate and Marvel Comics say they will screen the upcoming Blu-ray release of 'Doctor Strange' for convention attendees.
Although the new direct-to-disc animated adventure from Marvel and Lionsgate isn't due to hit store shelves until August 14th, both companies have arranged a sneak peek for Comic-Con attendees on Friday July 27th.
As we've previously reported, 'Dr. Strange' is Lionsgate's second direct-to-disc Blu-ray release in cooperation with Marvel Comics, following 'The Ultimate Avengers Collection,' which was released to strong sales earlier this year.
According to a recent post on Marvel.com, the entire 95 minute feature will be shown on the big screen at Comic-Con, followed by a Q&A with the film's Supervising Director/Producer Frank Paur and Writer Greg Johnson.
Lionsgate and Marvel have also revealed additional specs for the Blu-ray edition of 'Dr. Strange,' which is now set to include English 7.1 DTS HD Master Audio and 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround EX Audio tracks, plus a wealth of supplements, including three featurettes, concept art and a trailer gallery.
