The Reaping [Blu-ray, HD DVD/DVD Combo Box Art] UPDATE 07/23/07 (3:00pm ET): Since originally posting this article, Warner Home Video has confirmed to us that despite earlier information to the contrary, both next-gen editions of 'The Reaping' Blu-ray will include Dolby TrueHD tracks. (Thanks to Steve for the tip!)

Just in time for Halloween, Warner Home Video has announced it will bring horror-thriller 'The Reaping' to both next-gen formats this October.

Starring two-time Oscar winner Hilary Swank, the $40-million grossing spookfest will hit Blu-ray and HD DVD (as a DVD combo platter) day-and-date with the standard-def version on October 16.

Both next-gen versions are set to include Dolby TrueHD 5.1 surround tracks, and the same batch of supplements, including four featurettes and a "Scary Story," read by the movie's pint-sized co-star AnnaSophia Robb.

The Blu-ray edition will retail for $34.95, while the extra DVD flipside will cost HD DVD fans an extra $5 bucks with a $39.98 MSRP.

We've added full specs including box art for 'The Reaping' to both our Blu-ray Release Schedule and HD DVD Release Schedule, under October 16.

We've also set up dedicated threads for the announcement in our Forums area -- click the following links to discuss 'The Reaping' Blu-ray release and 'The Reaping' HD DVD release.
