Universal has unveiled final specs for the two-disc Blu-ray release of 'Hellboy II: The Golden Army,' which will hit high-def with hours of exclusive content and DTS-MA 7.1 audio.
As previously announced, the $75 million-grossing fantasy sequel will make its Blu-ray debut on November 18 (day-and-date with the standard DVD) in two-disc special edition and 3-disc limited edition versions.
Now full specs are in for the two-disc version, which is sure to impress fans with its wealth of features. Confirmed extras include a pair of audio commentaries with director Guillermo del Toro, and cast Jeffrey Tambor, Selma Blair & Luke Gross, multiple featurettes ("Hellboy: In Service of the Demon," "Troll Market Tour with Guillermo del Toro," "Production Workshop"), deleted scenes (including an animated "Comic Zinco Epilogue" to the film), a "Comic Book Builder" interactive feature, multiple still galleries, the complete script, and Digital Copy.
Exclusive to the Blu-ray are numerous U-Control and BD-Live extras, including the "Scene Explorer: Schufftan Google View" mode, the "Director's Notebook" featurette, additional "Set Visits" footage, a conceptual art gallery, MyChat and MyScenes BD-Live functionality, and more exclusive content to be made available online with the disc launches.
Tech specs boast a BD-50 dual-layer presentation of the film in 1080p video and English DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 Surround.
Though Universal has not yet confirmed details for the three-disc set, it is expected to contain all of the features of the two-disc plus additional extras and collectibles to be announced. We'll keep you posted.
