Posted Tue May 31, 2011 at 02:30 PM PDT by

The cult film that tragically ended Brandon Lee's life will be released on Blu-ray stateside in September.

In an early announcement to retailers, Lionsgate says Alex Proyas' 'The Crow' is coming to Blu-ray on September 6.

Catch the explosive hit that thrilled moviegoers and critics everywhere! Brandon Lee ('Rapid Fire') plays Eric Draven, a young rock guitarist who, along with his fiancée, is brutally killed by a ruthless gang of criminals. Exactly one year after his death, Eric returns - watched over by a hypnotic crow - to seek revenge, battling the evil crime lord and his band of thugs, who must answer for their crimes.

Nate Boss has already reviewed the pricey Japanese import which can be viewed here.

The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and there's no word yet on the supplements.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is still undetermined at this time.
