The race to stop the end of the world begins on Blu-ray in August.

In an early announcement to retailers, Gaiam Vivendi Entertainment is preparing 'Cat. 8' for Blu-ray on August 13.

When government agent Dr. Jane Brandt (Maxim Roy) unveils a global security system that harnesses the unlimited energy of the sun, an unanticipated accident triggers unimaginable consequences. The only man who can save the planet from the seething solar plasma heading towards Earth is government outsider and renegade physicist, Michael Mitchell (Matthew Modine). As chaos reigns across the globe and government officials relinquish all hope, Michael faces the harsh reality that he only has a matter of hours to save all human life on the planet. The countdown to the end of the world begins with this never-before-seen extended version of 'Cat. 8.'

Specs and supplements have not been revealed yet, but suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.95.
