Warner has announced plans to bring the 2007 holiday hit 'Fred Claus' to Blu-ray in late November.

Though critics didn't give it much holiday cheer, the Paul Giamatti-Vince Vaughn starrer still managed to eke out a $72 million domestic box office gross during its theatrical run last Christmas. Warner will debut the Blu-ray version on November 25, day-and-date with the standard DVD.

Extras shared between both versions include audio commentary with director David Dobkin, a trio of featurettes ("Pause for Claus: Elves Tell All," "Sibling Rivalry," "Behind the Scenes of This Winter Wonderland," all in HD video), 25 minutes of deleted/additional scenes, the "Vince and Paul's Fireside Chats" cast roundtable interview, and Ludacris' "Ludacrismis" music video.

There are no confirmed tech specs as of yet, but we'll keep you posted.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray has been set at $38.95.
