Sony Bundles Up 'Crouching Tiger' in Blu-ray Box Set

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon

Sony has finally announced 'Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon' for high-def release this July, though fans may only be able to buy it as part of a three-title Blu-ray bundle.

The on-again, off-again 'Tiger' was last spotted with a November 2006 Blu-ray release date, before Sony unceremoniously yanked the much-anticipated title from its release schedule.

Now, retailers have been alerted to July 14 Blu-ray release date for the 'Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, Curse of the Golden Flower, House of Flying Daggers Trilogy' box set. This three-pack bundle will include a first-ever Blu-ray version of 'Tiger,' plus the stand-alone versions of 'Curse' and 'House' that the studio previously released on the format in 2006.

At press time, there has been no word from Sony as to whether a stand-alone version of 'Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon' will be made available, but expectations are that it will be available outside of the box set. In any case, we'll certainly keep you posted.

Suggested retail price for the Blu-ray has been set at $92.98.

You'll find the latest specs for the 'Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, Curse of the Golden Flower, House of Flying Daggers Trilogy' linked from our Blu-ray Release Schedule, where it's indexed under July 14.
