A follow-up to the 2002 cult favorite 'The Cell,' the sequel will hit Blu-ray (sans original stars Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Lopez) on June 16, day-and-date with the standard DVD.

Tech specs will see a BD-25 single-layer presentation with 1080p/VC-1 video and Dolby TrueHD 5.1 Surround audio.

Extras will include a single making-of featurette, plus a second standard DVD disc with a Digital Copy of the film (compatible with PCs and iTunes).
