Warner Home Video has just announced director Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes will be hitting DVD and Blu-ray on March 30. While James Cameron’s Avatar has dominated the box office and news the past two months, Sherlock Holmes has quietly made almost $400 million at the worldwide box office and it’s still making money. For a movie that cost around $100 million to make, Holmes is one of the big success stories of 2009. That’s probably why the studio is moving forward with a sequel as I type these words.
Hit the jump to check out the cover art and the info we were provided about the DVD and Blu-ray:According to WB Home Video, here are the extras:

While they list deleted scenes as part of disc 2, when I spoke to director Guy Ritchie, he said they didn’t have anything to put on the disc. That’s probably why it says TBD. More info as we get it.
