Video Business is reporting that the worldwide box office smash is set to be released here in the U.S. just in time for the holiday shopping season on November 24th. While not a huge success due to being critically panned, the film has gone on to gross nearly $500 million worldwide, and expects to bring in just as much due to DVD and Blu Ray revenue sales. Check out the full story after the jump.
Sony Pictures Home Entertainment will street its big summer theatrical Angels & Demons on DVD and Blu-ray Disc on Nov. 24.
A follow-up to hit film The Da Vinci Code, Angels & Demons will roll out as a two-disc Blu-ray ($39.95), two-disc extended cut standard-definition DVD ($36.95), single-disc theatrical DVD ($28.96) and UMD ($24.95). Pre-orders are due Oct. 22.
The Blu-ray version of the film, which grossed more than $480 million worldwide, will exclusively offer Sony’s new Web-enabled database feature ‘movieIQ.’ Also limited to the Blu-ray edition is the inclusion of both theatrical and extended film versions, an interactive map of Rome and digital copy.
Both Blu-ray and two-disc standard-def versions include seven behind-the-scenes featurettes and a DVD-ROM music application that lets viewers create their own Angels & Demons score with original tracks from composer Hans Zimmer.
The single-disc edition includes a number of featurettes as well.
