Making an early announcement to retailers, Weinstein Co. has set a September Blu-ray bow for the smash Stephen King chiller '1408.'
Starring John Cusack and Samuel L. Jackson, '1408' was last summer's sleeper hit, grossing over $70 million at the domestic box office.
Following a successful two-disc DVD release late last year, Weinstein Co. will bring the horror hit to Blu-ray on September 16.
Initial specs are still scarce, though early details indicate a single-disc BD-50 dual-layer presentation with 1080p video and Dolby TrueHD 5.1 Surround audio.
No word yet on supplements or whether the Blu-ray will include the unrated extended version found on the two-disc standard DVD edition. As always, we'll keep you posted.
Suggested retail for the Blu-ray has been set at $29.98.
