An asteroid is hurtling towards our bright blue marble and something must be done or we are all going to go the way of the dinosaurs. That’s the premise of the CBS series, Salvation.
News arrived this week that CBS Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Media will team for the four-disc DVD launch of Salvation: Season One (the jury is still out as to a second season) on Dec. 19. All 13 episodes are included in the set.
An unlikely group forms to come up with a plan — an MIT student by the name of Liam (Charlie Rowe) and hi-tech zillionaire named Darius (Santiago Cabrera) team up with a member of Defense Department (Ian Anthony Dale) to come up with a plan. But they soon find that there are forces at work with other plans!
Bonus features include the Comic-Con session from earlier this year, deleted and extended scenes and a pair of featurettes — “What Would You Do?” and “Science Face: Technology.”
In other release news this week from Paramount Home Media, the first four Transformers films — Transformers (2007), Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (2009), Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011) and Transformers: Age of Extinction (2014) will be available on Dec. 5 as 4K Ultra HD/Blu-ray Combo Pack selections.
On the same date, director Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar will also be available at retail as a 4K Ultra HD/Blu-ray SKU (Amazon was up and then down with a Dec. 5 release date for Dunkirk … and certain European markets are echoing a first week of December release for Nolan’s Dunkirk). Does Paramount know something that we’d all like to know?
