'Super 8' Lands On Blu-Ray This November: Details & Box Art Revealed

Details have finally been released for Paramount Home Entertainment's summer hit Super 8. The J.J. Abrams and Steven Spielberg production will hit Blu-ray in a Blu-ray/DVD/digital copy combo pack just in time for Thanksgiving. (Now that's definitely something to be thankful for.)

Written and directed by Abrams, Super 8

centers on a group of pre-teen kids who witness a government train derail while they are shooting a scene for their Super 8 movie. The train's secret cargo is then let loose in their small Ohio town.

Having seen the film in theaters I highly recommend adding this to your Blu-ray collection.

The Blu-ray release will sport Dolby TrueHD 7.1 audio and over two hours of bonus materials spread across nine featurettes and deleted scenes. Check out the complete listing below.

Abrams, producer Bryan Burk and cinematographer Larry Fong The Dream Behind Super 8 The Search for New Faces Meet Joel Courtney Rediscovering Steel Town The Vitor Lives Scoring Super 8 Do You Believe in Magic?

Super 8 is expected to hit retail just in time for the holiday shopping season on November 22nd.

Pre-orders are now up on Amazon.

It must be a typo because if you go to the Walmart online store it has 11/22/11 listed as the release date.

I'm surprised a critic actually called this "an instant clasc."

I thought it was pretty mediocre.

You should grab one for yourself and some extras and sell them on eBay if they really release it that early - that's insane!

That's actually a good idea. Hopefully the guy was telling the truth and it isn't a typo. Still won't believe it until I see it for myself tomorrow just figured I'd post that pic.
