MGM has officially announced a late-February Blu-ray bow for 'Ronin,' though fans may be disappointed by the lack of extras on the bones release.

Originally scheduled for a late-2007 Blu-ray release (before disappearing from the studio's schedule for over a year), MGM has now confirmed a February 24 Blu-ray date for the hit Robert DeNiro action-thriller.

Final tech specs see a BD-25 single-layer disc with 1080p/MPEG-2 video (2.35:1) and DTS-HD Lossless Master Audio 5.1 Surround audio.

Fans hoping for a full-featured release will find not a single bonus feature, with none of the supplemental material found on previous DVD releases carried over to the Blu-ray.

Suggested retail price for the Blu-ray has been set at $34.99.

You'll find the latest specs for 'Ronin' linked from our Blu-ray Release Schedule, where it's indexed under February 24.
