'Grease' is the Word on Blu-ray this May

Posted Fri Feb 13, 2009 at 06:00 AM PST by Peter Bracke

The mega-hit 'Grease' is ready to hit the high-def sock hop, with Paramount Home Entertainment announcing an early-May Blu-ray release for the musical classic.

The film that made John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John stars, 'Grease' still ranks as the most financially successful musical in Hollywood history, earning over $100 million domestically (in 1978 dollars, no less).

Paramount has alerted retailers to a May 5 Blu-ray release for the film. (The studio previously issued a standard DVD special edition in 2004.)

There are no tech or supplement specs available as of yet, but a package comparable to the DVD is expected. As always, we'll keep you posted.

Suggested retail price for the Blu-ray has been set at $29.99.
