2D and 3D Editions of Hugo Announced Following Oscar Nomination Success
Martin Scorsese's Hugo has been nominated for 11 Academy Awards in total, including Best Picture and Best Director, and has been cited as the best 3D picture to be released since the format's resurgence. Now the film has been announced for its Blu-ray release, and will come in either a Combo Pack with the DVD and the Blu-ray, or as a 3D Limited Edition.
The film will be presented in 1080p with a 7.1 DTS-HD Master Audio track, plus a variety of extras listed below. The 3D set will add a 3D Blu-ray disc to the standard Combo Pack. For the US release, an UltraViolet digital copy will also be available to download or stream online.
- Shoot the Moon: The Making of Hugo Documentary.
- The Cinemagician, Georges Melies.
- The Mechanical Man at the Heart of Hugo.
- Big Effects, Small Scale.
- Sacha Baron Cohen: Role of a Lifetime.
In the USA, Hugo will go on sale on the 28th February, while it'll take another month to arrive in the UK, as it's set to make its debut on the 26th March.
The artwork comes from the US edition, and the UK set has yet to appear.
