(Editor's Note: In our initial post of this story, we incorrectly identified the release date of 'TMNT' as August 8, not August 7. We apologize for the error.)
Get ready for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to hit high-def this summer, when Warner Home Video debuts the big-screen redux 'TMNT' on Blu-ray and HD DVD.
An all-CGI animated retooling of the live-action 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle' trilogy that scored big in the early '90s, 'TMNT' opened to a strong $24 million take at the box office this past February, but quickly wilted with a worldwide gross of barely $85 million.
Warner hopes to reverse the Turtles' fortunes when it gives the film a simultaneous bow on Blu-ray, HD DVD and standard-def DVD on August 7.
No specs have yet been announced, but Warner is billing the releases as special editions, so we look forward to significant bonus materials.
List price will be $34.95 for the Blu-ray version, and $39.98 for the HD DVD, which will be a combo platter.
