Sony Pictures Entertainment has listed the special features for their upcoming 20th Anniversary Blu-ray of John Singleton's Boyz N the Hood. As detailed in Sony's press release, the Blu-ray for this gritty drama about life in early 1990's Compton ports over all of the special features from the 10th Anniversary DVD edition of the film and adds a new retrospective documentary. Street date is still July 19th, 2011.
Special features include:
New to Blu-ray - Retrospective Documentary: The Enduring Significance of Boyz N the Hood
Commentary with director John Singleton
Documentary: Friendly Fire: Making Of An Urban Legend
Two deleted scenes
Two music videos - Compton Most Wanted's "Growin' Up in the Hood," and Tevin Campbell's "Just Ask Me To"
Update: We have just received confirmation from Sony Publicity that the Blu-ray will include the Audition Videos Featuring Ice Cube, Angela Bassett, Morris Chestnut, and Tyra Ferrell featurette.
Boyz N the Hood is available for Amazon pre-order of $13.99.

Then where is the trailer? It was on the 10th Anniversary DVD. Why is Sony leaving trailers off, its bullshit, all of it, I may get this someday, but I will be fine with the DVD until Sony starts appreciating trailers again, like Columbia/Tri-Star did.
I've never actually seen this film, so I'll definitely blind buy it at some point. The list price and the Amazon preorder price are fairly low, so it'll probably become quite cheap ($10 or less) in the not too distant future.
