Remastered TRANSFORMERS 30th Anniversary will hit BLURAY + DVD

Just in time for the film’s 30th anniversary, Shout! Factory and Hasbro Studios announced that they are working together to release an all new edition of the classic animated film on September 13, 2016.

maxresdefaultThe re-release will contain a newly remastered digital high definition transfer from the original 35mm source material. The film will be available in a collectible packaging and as expected will include bonus features but what’s not known is if these bonus features will be carried over from the 20th anniversary release of the film or if it’s all new bonus material. Perhaps a combination of the two? Why not!

The film has been released on blu-ray format in other countries outside of the United States before but with out the additional bonus content.

“The Transformers franchise has been part of American popular culture for more than 30 years, developing into one of the most recognizable brands around the globe,” said Stephen Davis, Chief Content Officer and Executive Vice President of Hasbro. “Transformers – The Movie played a huge role in the brand’s early success, laying the foundation for major motion pictures, several successful TV series, clothing and apparel, toys and much more. We are thrilled to work with Shout! Factory to deliver the original movie to fans in a completely remastered HD experience.”

“Transformers – The Movie is a highly sought-after animated feature, boasting a large fan following and consumer interest. On its 30th anniversary, we look forward to celebrating this film by bringing it to North America on Blu-ray for the first time. Having worked closely with Hasbro Studios on top brands like animated series Transformers: Robots in Disguise,G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero, Transformers Prime, My Little Pony, My Little Pony: Equestria Girls movies and more, this is incredibly exciting and important news for us,” said Melissa Boag, Senior Vice President of Kids & Family Entertainment at Shout! Factory. “We look forward to bringing Transformers – The Movie, featuring all-new HD transfer with stunning packaging and great extras to fans and on family home entertainment shelves.” via COMICBOOK.com

I’m really excited to finally own a much deserved high definition version of this classic movie. Looking forward to reliving the moment a robot made me cry as a child lol. I’m also hoping the blu-ray comes with a UV Digital download so I can add it to my digital video library to enjoy on the go.

FANFILM CORNER PRESENTS: BATMAN vs DARTH VADER

Machinima has released this little piece of internet gold a few days ago. Don’t know how I didn’t catch it till now. It’s definitely fun to watch, even though I know that the story isn’t really meant to be taken serious but I have to admit it’s a little clunky, they could’ve ironed it out a bit more than they did. Besides that, it’s a very cool mashup! Enjoy!

Batman travels to the Death Star in the most epic episode of Super Power Beat Down of all time!
