Details on Scream Factory's Blu-ray release of Stuart Gordon's Robot Jox

The awesome Scream Factory will be bringing back a childhood favorite of mine when they release a special edition Blu-ray of the 1989 film ROBOT JOX on July 7th.

Directed by Stuart Gordon (RE-ANIMATOR) and produced by Full Moon founder Charles Band, 

ROBOT JOX reveals a world where nations settle their territorial disputes by a single combat between two giant machines. Piloted by national heroes Achilles (Gary Graham) and Alexander (Paul Koslo), the robots meet in Death Valley to fight for the greatest prize of all: Alaska. But when Achilles' machine crushes 300 spectators, the match ends in a draw. Refusing to face Alexander in a rematch, Achilles is replaced by Athena (Anne-Marie Johnson), a genetically-engineered combat fighter. So when the GenJox is nearly killed and the game is forfeited, Achilles avenges their honor by challenging Alexander to a winner-take-all death match, in this heavy-metal, sci-fi adventure.

With robots smashing robots in fights brought to the screen by the wondrous stop-motion skills of David Allen and his crew, ROBOT JOX is a whole lot of B-movie fun. Giant robots were all the rage in the '80s, and now that they're back in style thanks to the likes of the TRANSFORMERS movies and PACIFIC RIM, it's the perfect time for its well-deserved Blu upgrade.
