Summit's Ender's Game official for BD on 2/11

All right, we’ve got one more quick update for you with late breaking release news...

Summit Entertainment has just officially set Ender’s Game for Blu-ray Combo and DVD release on 2/11.  The digital window starts on 1/28.  The Blu-ray and DVD (SRP $39.99 and $29.95) will both include audio commentary with producers Gigi Pritzker and Bob Orci and deleted/extended scenes with commentary by director Gavin Hood.  To this, the Blu-ray will exclusively add the 8-part/45-minute Ender’s World: The Making of Ender’s Game documentary.

Here’s a look at the cover art for both versions, along with the BBC’s Sherlock: Season Three (due 2/11)...

Stay tuned!
