Warner Home Video's Pacific Rim On DVD And Blu-ray Oct. 15

DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph Tribbey
Writer/director Guillermo del Toro’s monsters from another dimension, Pacific Rim, will get a three-SKU home entertainment launch from Warner Home Video on Oct. 15.

The ARR is swift-to-market 95 days and summer ticket sales currently stand at $100.4 million.

Planned are double-disc DVD edition, a Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack and a 3D/2D Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack, all featuring UltraViolet.

You have to give del Toro credit for coming up with a mix-genre sci-fi thriller.   Pacific Rim is a little bit Transformers, a little bit Godzilla and all nicely packaged in del Toro’s unique visual style (think: Pan's Labyrinth) … and he pulls it off without a marquee name — Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba and Rinko Kikuchi are not exactly household names.

Bonus features include commentary from filmmaker Guillermo del Toro, deleted scenes, a blooper reel and four featurettes — “Drift Space,” “The Digital Artistry of Pacific Rim,” “The Shatterdome” and “Focus Points.”   

Exclusive to the Blu-ray SKUs is a bonus feature described as “The Directors Notebook.”
