Godzilla is capable of firing a blue ray so it only figures his movies should also be released on Blu-ray (This pun works better when spoken). The King of the Monsters will finally stomp his way onto Blu-ray DVD on September 22nd when the original Japanese masterpiece gets the Blu-ray treatment.
Fangoria got the scoop and first look at the artwork for September 22nd Gojira Blu-ray release. Though being distributed by Genius Products, the Blu-ray release will be the same as last year’s Classic Media release of the 1954 classic. Well, not exactly. You’ll only get the uncut English-subtitled version (Sorry, fans of Raymond Burr and bad dubbing!) and the audio commentary track from two noted Godzilla experts will not be included. The disc will still come with theatrical trailers and features on the designing of the Godzilla suit and development of the film’s story. Retail price ill be $29.93.
This marks the first Godzilla motion picture to receive the Blu-ray treatment. Unless you count the 1998 Emmerich/Devlin abortion, which I do not.
