New Line has announced a late-October high-def release for 'Journey to the Center of the Earth,' which will come to Blu-ray in 2-D and 3-D versions.
The Brendan Frasier-starrer turned into the sleeper hit of the summer, crossing the $100 million mark thanks to a wide 3-D release in multiplexes and IMAX theaters.
Making a speedy trip to video, New Line in conjunction with Warner Home Video will debut the film on Blu-ray October 28, day-and-date with the standard DVD.
Released as a limited edition, the Blu-ray set will include both 3-D and 2-D versions, and come with four pairs of 3-D glasses. Once supplies are depleted, future Blu-ray copies will include the 2-D version only.
Supplements shared between the Blu-ray and DVD will include audio commentary with Frasier, a trio of making-of featurettes and the "Adventure at the Center of the Earth Challenge" interactive game.
Exclusive to the Blu-ray will be a Digital Copy of the film (in 2-D and standard-def only). (In keeping with New Line's current Digital Copy strategy, the disc will not be Mac compatible.)
Suggested retail price for the Blu-ray has been set at $39.95.
