Blu-Ray

The Blu-Ray runs at a full 1080p HD at a 16:9 widscreen ratio with a 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio track. You pretty much get best of what technology has to offer today. The visuals and sounds are very crisp and it’s what you would expect.

The 3D Blu-Ray was even better than the regular version and it was very similar to what I saw in theaters. The visuals of this version were extremely pleasing to the eyes.
