Paramount Adds ‘Sahara’ to Blu-ray Slate; Shuffles ‘The Italian Job’

Today we learned Paramount Home Entertainment has added ‘Sahara’ to their second wave of Blu-ray Disc titles, and subsequently broken that wave into two mini-waves that will be released on October 10 and October 24.

‘Aeon Flux’ and ‘U2: Rattle & Hum’ will retain their October 10 release date, while ‘The Italian Job’ will slide back to October 24 and be joined by ‘Sahara.’ We’d like to think ‘The Italian Job’ is being cleaned up after a sub-par HD-DVD showing; however, the move is most likely to take advantage of filling out otherwise empty weeks leading up to the big ‘Mi:3’ Monday at the end of the month.
