Updated: Super 8 Blu-ray Release Date and Pre-Order

Update 2: Pre-orders for Super 8 are now live. Click here to pre-order Super 8 on Blu-ray at Amazon for a discounted price. Also, to clear any confusion,the Blu-ray audio is 7.1 Dolby TrueHD and not 7.1 DTS-HD Master Audio, as previously incorrectly reported.

Update: Super 8 Blu-ray cover art inspired by the old Kodak film cases has been added below.

Super 8, the last of the big early summer blockbusters to be announced for home video, has finally been assigned a November 22 release date for Blu-ray and DVD.

The story of a small town whose invasion by a creature helps bring fractured families together, Super 8 draws on the childhood nostalgia of writer/director J.J. Abrams and 1970s films from Steven Spielberg, who served as producer on the film. It stars a mix of veteran and young talented actors including Elle Fanning, Gabriel Basso, Zach Mills, Joel Courtney, Riley Griffiths, Ryan Lee, Kyle Chandler and Ron Eldard.

Super 8 on Blu-ray will come packaged with the DVD version and a digital copy. The feature will be presented in 1080p video and 7.1 Dolby TrueHD audio.

Over two hours worth of bonus features will be packed onto the Super 8 Blu-ray including:

  • Commentary by writer/director J.J. Abrams, producer Bryan Burk and cinematographer Larry Fong
  • Behind-the-Scenes Featurettes
  • The Dream Behind Super 8
  • The Search for New Faces
  • Meet Joel Courtney
  • Rediscovering Steel Town
  • The Visitor Lives
  • Scoring Super 8
  • Do You Believe in Magic?
  • The 8mm Revolution
  • Deconstructing the Train Crash
  • Deleted Scenes

I’m expecting to receive the Super 8 Blu-ray cover art in the near future and will share it immediately upon receipt. Ditto with Amazon’s pre-order link.
