Inglourious Basterds (R2/UK BD) in December - BD Specs added

Universal Pictures have scheduled the UK DVD and Blu-ray Disc release of Inglourious Basterds for 7th December 2009. Quentin Tarantino’s latest is set in nazi-occupied France where a group of Jewish soldiers known as “The Basterds” are delivering brutal retribution under the command of Lieutenant Aldo Raine (Brad Pitt).

A full announcement has yet to be made but we’ve got confirmed specs for the single-disc DVD release which offers the following features:

  • 2.40:1 Anamorphic Widescreen
  • English and Hungarian DD5.1 Surround
  • English SDH, Arabic, Danish, Finnish, Hungarian, Icelandic, Norwegian and Swedish subtitles
  • Extended and Alternate Scenes
  • Nation’s Pride – the film within the film can be seen in its entirety
  • Inglourious Basterds Trailers

And here are the Blu-ray Disc specs:
  • 1080P 2.40:1 Widescreen
  • English 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio
  • French and Spanish (Latin American) 5.1 DTS Surround
  • English SDH, French and Spanish (Latin American) subtitles
  • Extended and Alternate Scenes
  • Nation’s Pride – the film within the film can be seen in its entirety
  • Featurettes on Nation’s Pride
  • Roundtable discussion with Quentin Tarantino, Brad Pitt and film historian/critic Elvis Mitchell
  • A conversation with veteran actor Rod Taylor
  • Film Poster Gallery Tour with Elvis Mitchel
  • and more!

Considering the audio specs we’re guessing the UK release will be identical to the US release meaning the ‘and more’ extras will consist of:
  • Domestic and International Trailers
  • The Original Inglorious Bastards – a salute to the original 1978 film
  • Rod Taylor on Victoria Bitters, the Australian beer
  • Quentin Tarantino’s Camera Angel
  • Hi Sallys – Gag Reel
  • Inglourious Basterds Poster Gallery

This material has all been passed by the BBFC.

The running time of the extras on Blu-ray is 90mins.

Below is the artwork for the standard DVD release, then the HMV exclusive, the standard Blu-ray release and finally the LE Blu-ray Disc release (which is available at all retailers)...
