Sony Pictures has set an early-June release for an unrated Blu-ray version of the cheerleading comedy 'Fired Up!'
Though it barely made a blip at the domestic box office (drumming up a meager $17 million gross), Sony hopes that the unrated hijinks will boost its video appeal when it releases the film on Blu-ray June 9 (day-and-date with the standard DVD).
Tech specs will see 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 video (2.40:1) and English Dolby TrueHD 5.1 Surround audio.
Extras include audio commentary (with director Will Gluck, Nicholas D'Agosto and Eric Christian Olsen), multiple featurettes ("This is Not a Cheerleading Movie: The Making of Fired Up!", "Double Duty," "Fired Up! Press Junket - Hour 12") and an uncensored gag reel.
At press time, Sony has announced an R-rated version for DVD, but we have yet to receive a confirmation on a Blu-ray counterpart. We'll keep you posted.
Suggested retail price for the unrated Blu-ray has been set at $38.95.
