The 1961 monster movie will be unleashed on Blu-ray in March.
In an early announcement to retailers, VCI will be bringing 'Gorgo' to Blu-ray on March 19.
A volcanic eruption in the North Atlantic brings to the surface a 65-foot prehistoric monster. Two treasure divers capture the creature and take him to London where he is put on display in a circus. A scientist is thoughtful enough to point out that the sailors' bonanza is only an infant, and that a full-grown specimen would be over 200 feet in height. Sure enough, Gorgo's mama comes thundering ashore, reclaims her offspring and heads back to sea - but not before she trashes a generous portion of London. The special effects in GORGO, provided by Tom Howard - two-time Academy Award winner, are truly admirable. The monster is quite ferocious - except when he wiggles his ears. Released by MGM in 1961.
Specs have yet to be revealed, but supplements will include: "Ninth Wonder Of The World: The Making Of Gorgo" a new documentary by Daniel Griffith; Gorgo - Video Comic Book and Comic Book Cover Gallery; Extensive Lobby Card & Poster Gallery; Photo Gallery; Gorgo Toys & Collectibles Gallery; Production Notes; Original Theatrical Trailer; Pressbook Gallery; Star Ciné Cosmos - French-language "fumetto" (comic book); and Before & After Restoration Video.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is still undetermined at this time.
