Universal has announced a March arrival for their latest HD DVD catalog release, the classic Chevy Chase comedy 'Fletch.'
One of Chase's most memorable big-screen adventures, 'Fletch' grossed nearly $100 million worldwide back in 1985, and proved popular enough to spawn a sequel in 1989's 'Fletch Lives.' Universal has announced a HD DVD release date of March 11 for 'Fletch' (no sign of 'Fletch Lives,' however).
Tech specs for 'Fletch' include 1080p/VC-1 video, and Dolby TrueHD 5.1 Surround and Dolby Digital-Plus 5.1 Surround options.
Extras will mirror the recently-released DVD version, including three featurettes ("Just Charge It to the Underhills: Making and Remembering Fletch," "From John Cocktoastin' to Harry S. Truman: The Disguises," "Favorite Fletch Moments") and the film's original theatrical trailer.
Suggest retail for the HD DVD is $29.98.
