Paramount Home Entertainment has announced that it will re-release Transformers on June 7, in a single-disc release tied in with the theatrical release of Transformers: Dark of the Moon. Michael Bay's action blockbuster had been released on BD in 2008, in a two-disc special-edition Blu-ray.
i'll buy it cause i've been waitin' for a looooonnng time for the price to drop. i already hav both on Blu but i need my own copies cause i'll give my son the 1st two copies. i'm really been waitin' for RotF to drop in price at WM for the IMAX edition, still $24 and i been to 6 WMs same price.
When re-releases come out for theatrical releases of movies I would rather see a single disc like this and be pointless if you already have the first release. Then you do not have to re purchase for a few extras and people that do not own the first release can purchase the second release. But if they are the same price, may as well go with the 2 disc superior release. They did this a bit better than what Disney did with Pirates of the Caribbean. 2-3 months before Pirates 4 Stranger Tides lets release a 2nd trilogy bluray set and have 1 extra crap dvd disc with worthlessness not even within the box set. Just stick it to the back. Now that is ignorant.
Paramount has already done single disc re-releases of Star Trek, Iron Man, and G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra for starters, and now they're already on Transformers. No doubt they'll do Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen next. So not needed, Paramount!!
However, I might get the single disc re-release of G.I. Joe because there was nothing really special about that last 2-disc edition of said movie.
I only have this one on HD-DVD, haven't been able to upgrade due to money issues. If it gets a single disc release and is priced low enough maybe I can upgrade but for now I am ok with what I have. My sister on the other hand who really liked the movie just got a Blu Ray player so maybe she will like this news.
