The Pink Panther is coming to Blu-Ray Disc. Not the Peter Seller’s brand of Panthering, but the recent Steve Martin remake. The film is coming early next year from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
When a star soccer coach is murdered and his priceless Pink Panther diamond stolen, France is in an uproar. Fortunately, Inspector Jacques Clouseau (Steve Martin) is on the case. He doesn’t have a clue, but for Clouseau, that’s just a minor detail. With his partner, Gilbert Ponton (Jean Reno), he careens from one misadventure to the next, leaving mayhem in his wake from the boulevards of Paris to the streets of New York. Will he seduce the pop diva, Xania (Beyoncé)? Will he push Chief Inspector Dreyfus (Kevin Kline) over the edge? Will he catch the killer and recover the diamond? With Inspector Clouseau, anything is possible.
The disc will contain a 1080p high definition transfer that has been AVC encoded. The trasfer will be complemented by a Dolby Digital 5.1 TrueHD audio track.
In addition to the film the Beyoncé Music Video A Woman Like Me is included as the only special feature on the release.
On January 20th, the disc will arrive to help promote the sequel coming in 2009. It can be yours for $28.95.
