V for Vendetta

One of Warner's most eagerly-anticipated "catch-up " titles, 'V for Vendetta' will make its Blu-ray debut in late May.

Originally released on HD DVD back in October 2006 (read our review), 'V for Vendetta' is one of a handful of high-profile Warner titles that were previously held back from Blu-ray release due to the format's then-inability to support the studio's "In-Movie Experience" picture-in-picture commentary feature.

Finally set for release on May 20, the Blu-ray version of the cult hit will include all of the previous HD DVD's supplemental content, including an In-Movie Experience exclusive picture-in-picture commentary (Profile 1.1-enabled), along with a suite of four making-of featurettes ("Designing the Near Future," "Remember, Remember: The Guy Fawkes and the Gunpowder Plot," "England Prevails: V for Vendetta," "New Wave of Comics"), a 'Saturday Night Live' digital short, "Cat Power" montage, and theatrical trailers.

Announced tech specs feature 1080p/VC-1 video (2.35:1) and Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround audio. (At press time, Warner had not announced any high-res audio options for 'V for Vendetta,' but we'll keep you updated as any additional specs are confirmed.)

Suggested retail for the Blu-ray has been set at $28.95.
