Weinstein Co. has set a September 16 Blu-ray date for the Stephen King adaptation 1408, which grossed over $70 million at the domestic box office. Highdefdigest reports that the initial specs are still scarce, though early details indicate a single-disc BD-50 dual-layer presentation with 1080p video and Dolby TrueHD 5.1 Surround audio. No word yet on supplements or whether the Blu-ray will include the unrated extended version found on the two-disc standard DVD edition. “1408” is the tale of a debunker of paranormal occurrences (John Cusack) who encounters real terror when he checks into the notorious Room 1408 at the Dolphin Hotel.
