Universal has announced a late-November release for the war drama 'Jarhead' on Blu-ray, as well as a bundle featuring three of the studio's latest catalog releases.
Originally released on HD DVD over a year ago, Universal will debut the Blu-ray version of the Jake Gyllenhaal-Peter Skaarsgard starrer on November 25.
Tech specs will see a BD-50 dual-layer presentation with 1080p video (codec TBA) and DTS-HD Lossless Master Audio 5.1 Surround.
Supplements announced thus far include a pair of audio commentaries with director Sam Mendes and screenwriter William S. Broyles, though not any of the documentary or other video-based materials that were featured on the previous HD DVD. We'll keep you updated on any future spec updates.
Also due for release on November 25 is the 'Action/Thriller Giftset,' a three-pack bundle that includes 'Jarhead' plus the recently-announced 'The Kingdom (2007)' and '8 Mile.' Specs and extras are identical to the stand-alone versions.
Suggested list price has been set at $29.95 for 'Jarhead,' and $89.98 for the 'Action/Thriller Giftset.'
