Burn After Reading

The Coen Brothers' latest is bound for Blu-ray, with Universal Studios announcing a late-December high-def release for 'Burn After Reading.'

The latest from the Oscar-winning directors features a star-studded cast and grossed over $30 million at the domestic box office.

Universal will debut 'Burn After Reading' on Blu-ray December 23, day-and-date with the standard DVD.

Extras on this slim release include only three featurettes ("Finding the Burn," "DC Insiders Run Amuck," "Welcome Back George") and exclusive to the Blu-ray, a BD-Live-enabled My Scenes Sharing feature.

Tech specs will see a BD-25 single-layer disc with 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 video and DTS-HD Lossless Master Audio 5.1 Surround track.

Suggested retail price for the Blu-ray has been set at $34.95.
