After a six-month delay, Warner Home Video has announced it will at last bring Oliver Stone's 'Alexander: Revisited' to Blu-ray and HD DVD this September.

A critical and commercial bust upon its original theatrical release, Oliver Stone's 'Alexander' has already hit standard-def DVD in two separate versions -- the theatrical version, and a substantially shorter 'Director's Cut.'

Then, late last year, Warner announced it was working with Stone to produce a new, definitive version of the much-maligned epic that would reinstate an additional 45 minutes of footage not seen in any prior version.

Dubbed 'Alexander Revisited: The Final Cut,' the studio originally planned a simultaneous bow on DVD, Blu-ray and HD DVD for February 27, 2007, but then subsequently postponed only the next-gen versions without explanation.

Now, Warner has announced 'The Final Cut' will finally make its long-delayed high-def debut on September 18.

Specs include newly-remastered 1080p video, and standard Dolby Digital 5.1 surround tracks on both the Blu-ray and HD DVD.

Extras are set to mirror the standard-def DVD version, which was a slim package that included only a new Introduction by Stone, and the film's Theatrical Trailer.

Warner has set a $28.99 list price for each of the next-gen versions.

Now that it finally has its date, we've added 'Alexander Revisited' back to both our Blu-ray Release Schedule and our HD DVD Release Schedule, under September 18.

We've also set up dedicated threads for all the titles in our new Forums area -- click the following links to discuss the 'Alexander Revisited: The Final Cut' Blu-ray release and the Alexander Revisited: The Final Cut' HD DVD release.
