Warner Home Video will bring The Perfect Storm to Blu-ray Disc on July 22, just over a year after the film was released on HD DVD.
The HD DVD release was met with harsh criticism as being one of Warner’s infamous “bobbed” transfer releases. There’s no word on if a new transfer has been cut for Blu-ray, and we’d be surprised if one was.
The Perfect Storm was tentatively on the release schedule for Blu-ray back in early 2006 with Dolby Digital 5.1 EX audio. An extra year’s wait and the demise of HD DVD as a competing format will see the Blu-ray version receive Dolby TrueHD 5.1. audio previously reserved for Warner HD DVD releases.
Supplemental features will be identical to the HD DVD version including 3 documentaries, 3 audio commentaries, a photo montage and the theatrical trailer.
The Perfect Storm on Blu-ray will carry an SRP of $28.99.
