Guillermo Del Toro's Pacific Rim blu-ray/DVD details and release date revealed!

Sep. 6, 2013by: Paul Shirey

Perhaps the best box office "dud" of the summer, Guillermo Del Toro's PACIFIC RIM came out as the-big-movie-that-could by surpassing its domestic gross overseas and turning a decent profit as a result. Fans of the film have rallied behind it not only because it's a fun genre throwback film, but because it was also an original non-sequel entry in the summer movie season that took a risk, rather than riding the coattails of an established franchise. Not everyone fell to its charms, but ultimately it ended up making a big splash regardless of the lackluster domestic box office.

Now, the film is stomping its way to blu-ray/DVD where it will likely find a second (and profitable) life amongst those who skipped it at the theater. I think we'll see a similar situation as what happened to DREDD, which was all but ignored in the theater, but skyrocketed to the top of the charts when it hit home video.

Here's the deets and box art for PACIFIC RIM:

Pacific Rim will be available on Blu-ray 3D Combo Pack for $44.95, on Blu-ray Combo Pack for $35.99 and on 2-disc DVD Special Edition for $28.98. The Blu-ray 3D Combo Pack features the theatrical version of the film in 3D hi-definition, hi-definition and standard definition; the Blu-ray Combo Pack features the theatrical version of the film in hi-definition on Blu-ray; and the DVD features the theatrical version in standard definition. The Blu-ray 3D Combo Pack, Blu-ray Combo Pack and the 2-disc DVD Special Edition include UltraViolet* which allows consumers to download and instantly stream the theatrical version of the film to a wide range of devices including computers and compatible tablets, smartphones, game consoles, Internet-connected TVs and Blu-ray players.

PACIFIC RIM Blu-ray 3D Combo Pack and Blu-ray Combo Pack contain the following special features:

Audio Commentary by Guillermo del Toro

The Directors Notebook

Drift Space

The Digital Artistry of Pacific Rim

The Shatterdome

Focus Points

Deleted Scenes

Blooper Reel

Personally speaking, I really enjoyed PACIFIC RIM. Taking my four-year-old to the film made it even better as it was very much like experiencing the wonder of a big, silly, robots vs. monsters movie for the first time and it grew on me with each viewing (we clocked in at three viewings). Fingers crossed for a sequel, but if not, we'll at least have this one sitting on the shelf for repeat viewings.

PACIFIC RIM hits Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD and HD Digital Download on October 15, 2013. Preorder HERE!

Old Fart

WTF... I remember when Vhs/Beta tapes were first comming out... Popular titles went for upwards of $70.(A weeks wages in 1974) If you were lucky you could get tapes with previews in them for $50. remember when a format is new(ish) it will be more expensive then the old format. Take HDTV's... now they are less then $1000 for 36/48 inch sizes. In the beginning they were upwards of $12000!... at least we are not like some countries that charge $70 for ONE 30 minute episode of a show on a BD (and

Great movie... BUT...

That's the second time (after MoS) that Warner is SO specific in the specs about the THEATRICAL cut... Does that mean there is an extended cut coming soon, or as they just messing with us ?

Based on the comments i'm seeing no one here has ever bought a blu ray before. If you go to Target or Walmart the day it is released, the standard blu ray will probably cost around $24.99 to $27.99, and the 3D version will be around $29.99 to $34.99. No need to panic people.

Suggested price everyone...

Everyone, that's the MSRP or the manufacturer suggested retail price. Most Blurays nowadays clock in at the same amount. It's never going to change. I still remember when Blurays actually *did* cost $45 a pop.

Wow....they desperately need to get a clue.

$36 for regular Blu-ray? These guys need to actually look at the current economy and think about how many people are going to drop $40 for a DVD (especially when you can download it for free or copy it from Redbox for $1.20). I want to give my money to Del Toro to support what I thought was a great effort, but I'm not going to take out a second mortgage to do it.....

While retail price is suggested at $45, I'm sure it will fall in line with all new releases on release week and be in the $27-$30 range. Will probably be cheaper come Black Friday.

What bad cover art. I don't think the Jaegers can even bend like that. Also, wrong Jaeger.

I get the feeling if they do eventually decide to make a sequel, it'll get a double dip, so I'll hold out for that.

I've been very anxiously awaiting this release date. I saw it twice in theaters & might go back for a 3rd time at the dollar theater. Still, I'll probably watch it at least twice when the BluRay drops. Just a fun flick.

Good news & bad.

I loved it. Want to own it. Don't want more proof that it performed so weakly at the box office.

And that cover kinda blows...

It didn't do that bad. Worldwide it made over $400m. Enough for there to be a reason to make a sequel.
