The Weinstein Co. has announced plans to bring the medical thriller 'Awake' to Blu-ray in mid-November.

Starring Hayden Christensen, Jessica Alba, and Oscar nominee Terence Howard, 'Awake' grossed over $30 million at the domestic box office last Winter. The Weinstein Co. will debut the Blu-ray on November 18 (a standard DVD edition was released earlier this year).

Early tech specs include 1080p/VC-1 video and English Dolby TrueHD 5.1 Surround audio.

There's no word yet on supplements, but a package comparable to the DVD edition is expected. Watch this space.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray has been set at $39.98.
