‘Skyfall’ Blu-ray release date and details revealed
Skyfall was put up for pre-order around Thanksgiving last year, but an official release date and details of the Blu-ray Disc hadn’t been revealed yet. Now, MGM and Twentieth Century Fox have announced the street date for Skyfall on Blu-ray & DVD will be Feb. 12, 2013. That’s one month earlier than we expected! MGM also announced Skyfall will be available digitally one week earlier, starting Feb. 5, from online distributors such as Amazon, CinemaNow, iTunes, PlayStation, VUDU and Xbox Live.
