Contraband Blu-ray Up for Pre-Order at AmazonUpdate: Universal Studios Home Entertainment this morning officially announced an April 24, 2012 release date for Contraband on Blu-ray and DVD. The bonus features for this release have been added below.

Original article (February 17, 2012): In addition to last night’s arrival of Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol on Blu-ray to Amazon.com, the online retailer has added a Blu-ray and DVD combo pack pre-order listing for the Mark Wahlberg action flick Contraband.

Universal more than tripled their production investment of $25 million with Contraband when it was released theatrically on January 13, 2012. Behind director Baltasar Kormakur and star Wahlberg, Kate Beckinsale and Giovanni Ribisi, Contraband earned just over $65 million at the domestic box office and $8.2 million internationally.

Contraband on Blu-ray will be presented in 2.35:1 1080p video and 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio, with D-BOX Motion Code included on the disc. DVD and UltraViolet versions of the film will be included in the Blu-ray package. Bonus features are as follows:

  • Deleted Scenes
  • Under The Radar – The Making of Contraband: Take a comprehensive guided tour through the making of the modern action thriller Contraband.
  • Reality Factor – The Stunts and Action of Contraband: From an explosive, complicated armored car heist in Panama to brutal, realistic fistfights and gunplay in the back alleys of New Orleans, see how the stunt and SFX teams worked together to make sure Contraband delivered raw and real action to the film.
  • Feature Commentary: Director/Producer Baltasar Kormakur and Producer Evan Hayes participate.
  • U-Control picture-in-picture
