Transformers: ROTF Official DVD/Blu-ray Details

Paramount Home Video has finally released the full details for the DVD and Blu-ray release of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen to home video. As suspected, the official release date is October 20th, 2009. I am assuming that is the worldwide release date but check your local stores to verify. The movie will be released in three editions - two-disc Blu-ray, two-disc DVD, and one-disc DVD. The Blu-ray edition will have additional features that the two-disc DVD edition will not have.

Over all the list of special features seems pretty impressive but there is not "extended cut" like most wanted. The Blu-ray features don't seem that impressive to me nor is there a mention of how IMAX scenes will be handled in any of the editions but maybe that is what "extended scenes" is referring to. From the press release, here is the details on the home video release of the movie. Thanks to Fox Prime for the link. To pre-order from Amazon: 2-Disc Blu-ray | 2-Disc DVD | 1-Disc DVD


Two-Disc Special Edition DVD & Blu-ray:


The TRANSFORMERS: Revenge of the Fallen two-disc Special Edition DVD is presented in widescreen enhanced for 16:9 televisions with Dolby Digital English 5.1 Surround, French 5.1 Surround and Spanish 5.1 Surround with English, French and Spanish subtitles. The Blu-ray will be presented in 1080p high definition with English 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio, French 5.1 Dolby Digital and Spanish 5.1 Dolby Digital with English, English SDH, French, Spanish and Brazilian Portuguese subtitles.

The Blu-ray and two-disc DVD packages also will feature augmented reality technology that will allow owners to interact with a holographic image of OPTIMUS PRIME utilizing their webcams and a special website. Fans will be asked to piece together the Matrix of Leadership to bring OPTIMUS PRIME back to life, help repair his armor and calibrate his weapons by actually controlling his aim during target practice.

The disc breakdown is as follows:

Disc 1:

  • Commentary by Michael Bay, Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman

Disc 2:
  • The Human Factor: Revenge of the Fallen - This multi-chapter documentary chronicles the entire creation of the film and includes interviews with the cast and crew

  • Seeds of Vengeance - Development and Design - After the overwhelming success of 2007's Transformers, how do the filmmakers top themselves for the sequel?

  • Domestic Destruction - Production: United States - Michael Bay believes in going big: Big action and big explosions. Cast and crew are pushed to the limit as they traverse the U.S. from New Mexico to Pennsylvania.

  • Joint Operations - Production: Military - No other filmmaker in the world enjoys the kind of military access and cooperation Michael Bay has. Here we see just how efficient our armed forces are and the awe and respect shown by the cast.

  • Wonders of the World - Production: Middle East - You can't really reproduce Egypt anywhere but Egypt so off we go to Giza and Luxor.

  • Start Making Sense - Editing - In order to turn over the massive amount of film as quickly as possible to VFX, four editors work tirelessly in a unique tag-team approach to shape the film.

  • Under the Gun - Visual Effects - Revenge of the Fallen features the most complicated VFX in film history. So complicated in fact that the filmmakers were unsure they would make the deadline. The DEVASTATOR VFX alone required 83% of ILM's total render farm capacity.

  • Running the Gauntlet - Post-Production and Release - Working seven days a week, Michael Bay and company usher the film through sound design, Digital Intermediate color-timing and a globe-trotting whirlwind of premieres. - Post-Production and Release - Working seven days a week, Michael Bay and company usher the film through sound design, Digital Intermediate color-timing and a globe-trotting whirlwind of premieres.

  10. @ Scorpio:

    I thought you were a TF fan first class. You're foolish if you don't buy the Blu-Ray, it's not at all expensive, in The Netherlands(yes,that's where I'm from)the Blu-Ray is mostly only 5euro more then the 2disc-dvd. The 2dvd mostly 20-25euro, the Blu-Ray 25-30euro.
    Come on man, the picture is 5 times sharper and with DTS surround!!! And do I need to mention the exclusives.
