Universal has announced a mid-October bow for the David Cronenberg crime drama 'Eastern Promises.'
Though not as well received as past Cronenberg efforts, 'Eastern Promises' scored a Best Actor Oscar nod for star Viggo Mortensen as well as strong sales on video.
Coming almost a year after the HD DVD and standard DVD releases, Universal will bow 'Eastern Promises' on Blu-ray October 14.
Tech specs for the BD-50 dual-layer presentation include 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 video and DTS-HD Lossless Master Audio 5.1 Surround.
Bonus features are as slim as on the previous HD DVD and DVD versions, with a pair of featurettes ("Secrets and Stories," "Marked for Life") the only extras.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray has been set at $34.95.
