‘The Golden Compass’ Blu-ray Details and Cover Art

On Friday, news broke that New Line Home Entertainment would release The Golden Compass on April 29 in a lavish two-disc Blu-ray Disc set. Details were sketchy then as the information was pulled from an advertisement, but now we’ve got the full scoop with disc specs, special features, high-res cover art, and pre-order information with discounted pricing.

New Line will present The Golden Compass on Blu-ray in widescreen 2.35:1 1080p video and 7.1 DTS-HD Master Audio. While still early in their high-def support, New Line has yet to release a title with anything less than 7.1 channels of lossless audio.

Special features exclusive to Blu-ray will include an enhanced visual commentary and interactive menus. The remaining special features will appear on both the two-disc Blu-ray and DVD sets.

  • Feature-length audio commentary from writer/director Chris Weitz
  • Eleven “Making-of” featurettes including The Armoured Bears featurette, The Adaptation featurette and the Production Design featurette
  • Theatrical and teaser trailers

In addition, The Golden Compass has just appeared on Amazon.com for pre-order at a discounted pre-order price. Click here to pre-order The Golden Compass on Blu-ray for $27.95, or 30% off the list price.
