Sony Unveils 'Dogma' Blu-ray Specs

Posted Fri Jan 4, 2008 at 08:30 AM PST by Peter Bracke

UPDATE: In an earlier version of this post, we incorrectly identified the Blu-ray release date for 'Dogma' as February 12, which is the pre-order date for retailers. The actual consumer street date is March 11. We have updated our database with the correct date, and apologize for the error.

Full details are in for the high-def debut of Kevin Smith's cult classic 'Dogma,' which will hit Blu-ray this March with hours of bonus material.

As we first reported in December, Sony announced it would bow the controversial religious satire 'Dogma' on March 11, though initial specs were sparce. Now the full details are in, and typical of a Smith disc release, the Blu-ray will come loaded with making-of material and deleted footage.

Porting over many (but not all) of the features from Sony's previous two-disc DVD edition, the Blu-ray version of 'Dogma' will contain two audio commentaries (the first with Smith and cast members, the second a technical track), 100 minutes of deleted scenes (with intros), and a "Jay & Silent Bob's Secret Stash" mock commercial.

Tech specs boast 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 video and uncompressed PCM 5.1 Surround audio in English and French.

Suggested retail for the Blu-ray has been set at $28.99.
