'Pacific Rim' Splashes Down on Blu-ray and Blu-ray 3D!

Posted Mon Sep 9, 2013 at 06:00 AM PDT by

Guillermo del Toro's epic monster movie has been dated and detailed for both formats in October!

As previously reported, Warner Brothers is preparing 'Pacific Rim' Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy combo pack and 'Pacific Rim - 3D' Blu-ray 3D/Blu-ray/DVD combo pack for a release sometime in the coming weeks, and now the date has been set for October 15.

When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume 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 combo packs will feature 1080p video, DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 soundtracks, and supplements will include: Audio Commentary by Guillermo del Toro; Prologue by Guillermo Del Toro; Five Focus Points; Deleted Scenes; and Blooper Reel.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is set at $35.99 and the Blu-ray 3D is $44.95.
