“DESTROY ALL MONSTERS” and more Godzilla smash onto Blu-rayMovies/TV,News Michael Gingold
One of the cool byproducts of the hype around the upcoming American GODZILLA is that its Japanese inspirations are escaping from the vaults and onto U.S. hi-def discs. We’ve got the date and cover art for a couple of upcoming releases below.
Media Blasters has announced that it will reissue the multi-kaiju classic DESTROY ALL MONSTERS (pictured above) on Blu-ray, and give GODZILLA VS. MEGALON its Stateside debut in that format, on July 22, along with DVDs of both titles. In addition, the company will release a GODZILLA STOMP BOX containing DVDs of both movies. MONSTERS and MEGALON will each be presented on the Blu-rays in fully uncut 1080p 2.35:1 widescreen transfers, with Japanese DTS-HD 5.1 and 2.0 soundtracks (with English subtitles) along with English DTS-HD 2.0 audio; no special features have been announced. Retail prices are $19.99 for the individual movies, $14.99 for the STOMP BOX.
