Blu-ray release from Fox 5/8/12 (but only a Walmart exclusive)
20th Century Fox is releasing The Big Trail on Blu-ray on May 8, 2012.
Oddly, this will at least initially be an exclusive release at Walmart. No details on price, extras or whether this is the widescreen (and more complete) Grandeur version, though it would be a waste if it were not.
Fox has just resumed releasing a few classic films from its library after almost four years of neglect, including Blu-rays of titles previously released on DVD (this film and the 1953 Titanic), and DVD/Blu combos of new-to-disc films. Stars and Stripes Forever was the first such dual-disc release in December. The second will be another John Wayne film, The Barbarian and the Geisha, also to be released as a Walmart exclusive on May 8. SASF retailed at $34.99, which seems to be the likely price of Barbarian, but the Blu-only Big Trail will probably retail for $29.99, like Titanic.
Anyone with further info, please post!
