MGM and Fox Home Entertainment have formally announced a February 12, 2013 release date for the latest James Bond 007 adventure Skyfall starring Daniel Craig and directed by Sam Mendes on Blu-ray and DVD (February 18 for the UK). However, I will be available a week earlier on February 5 via Digital HD download from Amazon.com, iTunes, CinemaNow, Xbox Live, Playstation and Vudu.
No tech specs are available at this time, though a safe bet is a 1080p video presentation and 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio. A DVD and digital copy will be included with the Blu-ray version of the film.
Fox and MGM have not yet announced an updated version of the Bond 50 box set that sold out during the holidays.

The original release contained an empty slot for Skyfall in the Blu-ray collection.
