Cinderella Man Laces Up for Blu-ray

The Ron Howard boxing drama Cinderella Man staring Russell Crowe has been cleared for a Blu-ray Disc release on March 26.

Cinderella Man was previously available exclusively on HD DVD during the high-def format wars. This upcoming Blu-ray Disc release marks its first appearance on the winning format.

Tech specs include a 2.35:1 1080p transfer, likely identical to the HD DVD transfer, and a new 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio mix.

Bonus features are virtually identical to the HD DVD version with the exception of BD-Live functionality.
