Online retailer HDAddicts.com has alerted us the Viggo Mortensen Russian mob drama Eastern Promises is scheduled for a Blu-ray Disc release on October 14.
Eastern Promises was originally released on HD DVD and presented in widescreen 1.85:1 1080p video and 5.1 Dolby Digital lossy audio. The move to Blu-ray should result in a jump to 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio.
Supplemental features found on the HD DVD will likely also appear intact on Blu-ray. Those include a pair of featurettes: Secrets and Stories, and Marked for Life.
Eastern Promises on Blu-ray will carry an SRP of $29.98. Check back regularly for high resolution cover art, finalized disc specs and pre-order information, all of which we expect on or shortly after Universal officially makes an announcement.
