Pacific Rim explodes onto your screen this fall

Buy on Amazon

Warner Home Video has announced the release of Pacific Rim, Guillermo del Toro‘s take on the kaiju genre, on DVD and Blu-Ray Disc, scheduling the discs for October.

In “Pacific Rim,” legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, have started rising from the sea, beginning a war that takes millions of lives and consumes humanity‘s resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes ”“ a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi) ”“ who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind‘s last hope against the mounting apocalypse.

The DVD version, arriving on two discs, will feature the movie with a Audio Commentary by Guillermo del Toro, as well as the Featurettes ”Drift Space,” “The Digital Artistry of Pacific Rim,” “The Shatterdome” and “Focus Points”. Also included are Deleted Scenes and a Blooper Reel.

The Blu-Ray version of the movie will include the same bonus materials as the DVD version, but further add The Directors Notebook to the mix, giving you an even deeper look behind the scenes of the film.

“Pacific Rim” will be in stores on October 15 as a Blu-Ray 3D Combo pack with DVD and UltraViolet version for $4495, a Blu-Ray combo for 35.99 and as a DVD version for $28.98.
