One of the top grossing movies of 2011 has announced its 3D Blu-Ray and DVD release date. Transformers: Dark of the Moon will be coming home January 31, 2012 with almost four hours of extensive bonus features.
Transformers fans can get Dark of the Moon in several formats when it arrives January 31 including the four disc ultimate edition Blu-Ray 3D and the Blu-Ray and DVD combo pack. “This Blu-ray 3D of Dark of the Moon will blow you away. If you’ve been waiting for the right time to get a 3D television, this is it,” director Michael Bay said. “For fans that’ve been waiting patiently to bring Dark of the Moon home, this Ultimate Edition release delivers the goods.”
Transformers: Dark of the Moon earned $1.1 billion at the global box office and rightfully so -- it is the best of the series.
Among the extras that are sure to compel is the two-hour documentary that takes fans inside the global trek that was making the third Transformers.
If that is not enough, Paramount Home Video is also releasing the entire series on a seven disc limited collector’s edition that features all three films, over 10 hours of extra footage and a plaque of movie images, signed by director Michael Bay.
