Tags: Disc Announcements, Warner (all tags)
Warner Home Video has announced it will bring Martin Scorsese's Oscar-decorated 'The Aviator' to Blu-ray and HD DVD this November.
The highly-acclaimed biopic of the legendary Howard Hughes, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Cate Blanchett and Alan Alda (all Oscar nominees for their work) scored over $100 million at the domestic box office, and will hit both next-gen formats November 6.
Tech specs include 1080p video and Dolby Digital 5.1 surround audio (at 640kbps) -- sadly, no high-resolution formats will be offered.
Extras include an audio commentary by Scorsese, a History Channel special on the real Hughes, a deleted scene, still gallery and the original theatrical trailer.
Retail for both high-def versions is $28.98.
