Warner Brings 'The Fountain' to Blu-ray, HD DVD
Tags: Disc Announcements, Warner (all tags)
A major box office disappointment that grossed less than $10 million for the studio, the time travel romance will make its home video debut a full six months after its controversial theatrical release. However, the film has won over a loyal cult following, and will likely find a more appreciable audience on disc.
Warner will offer identical specs for the Blu-ray and HD DVD versions, including a 1080p/VC-1 transfer and Dolby 5.1 surround tracks (both at 640kbps).
Extras include only "Inside The Fountain: Death and Rebirth," a six-part featurette gallery exploring the movie's various periods and setting, and the theatrical trailer.
Warner has set a $34.95 list price for the Blu-ray, and $39.95 for the HD DVD/DVD, which will be a combo release.
