    Woo! Alex and Bob are doing the commentary too! But it sounds like they won't be discussing the creation of every robot in the film.

    Official Blu Ray Info

    DreamWorks Pictures and Paramount Pictures’ $820+ Million Global Smash Returns to Earth October 20 Armed with Explosive Special Features to Bring the Epic Battle Home in Two-Disc Blu-ray and DVD Sets


    HOLLYWOOD, Calif. – With more action and more thrills, TRANSFORMERS: Revenge of the Fallen captivated audiences to earn over $820 million at the box office and become the #1 movie of the year in North America and throughout the world. The latest spectacular adventure in the wildly popular TRANSFORMERS franchise will make its highly-anticipated DVD and Blu-ray debut on October 20, 2009 in immersive, two-disc Special Editions, as well as on a single disc DVD, from DreamWorks Pictures and Paramount Pictures in association with Hasbro; distributed by Paramount Home Entertainment. The eagerly-awaited home entertainment premiere will be accompanied by one of the division’s biggest marketing campaigns ever, generating awareness and excitement of galactic proportions.

    >From director Michael Bay and executive producer Steven Spielberg, in association with Hasbro, TRANSFORMERS: Revenge of the Fallen delivers non-stop action and fun in an all-new adventure that the whole family can enjoy. Featuring out-of-this-world heroes in the form of the mighty AUTOBOTS and a malevolent and powerful villain known as THE FALLEN, the film boasts some of the most sensational—and complex—visual effects in film history set against the backdrop of spectacular locations around the world. In addition to audience favorites OPTIMUS PRIME and BUMBLEBEE, the film’s human stars have returned to help save the world including Shia LaBeouf (Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull), Megan Fox (How to Lose Friends & Alienate People), Josh Duhamel (“Las Vegas”), Tyrese Gibson (Four Brothers) and John Turturro (The Good Shepherd).

    The TRANSFORMERS: Revenge of the Fallen two-disc Blu-ray and DVD feature over three hours of in-depth, immersive special features that let viewers further explore the world of the legendary ROBOTS IN DISGUISE. Among the engrossing content is a multi-chapter documentary, including interviews with the cast and crew, that chronicles the entire making of the film from development and design to filming in locations around the globe, working with the U.S. military, creating the groundbreaking visual effects and putting it all together to produce the biggest film of the year. The discs also include an all-access featurette following renowned director Michael Bay through an entire day, a comprehensive exploration of the “confidential files” on a dozen of the TRANSFORMERS characters featured in the film, multi-angle breakdowns of some of the most sensational action sequences and much, much more.

    The Blu-ray and two-disc DVD packages also will feature augmented reality technology that will allow owners to interact with a holographic image of OPTIMUS PRIME utilizing their webcams and a special website. Fans will be asked to piece together the Matrix of Leadership to bring OPTIMUS PRIME back to life, help repair his armor and calibrate his weapons by actually controlling his aim during target practice.

    As an added bonus, the Blu-ray will include an exclusive interactive feature that gives viewers the ability to customize their own robot characters and get a glimpse at a rogue robot. Out of all the available permutations, one will unlock an exclusive interview with Michael Bay about his plans for the next adventure.

    Two-Disc Special Edition DVD & Blu-ray:
    The TRANSFORMERS: Revenge of the Fallen two-disc Special Edition DVD is presented in widescreen enhanced for 16:9 televisions with Dolby Digital English 5.1 Surround, French 5.1 Surround and Spanish 5.1 Surround with English, French and Spanish subtitles. The Blu-ray will be presented in 1080p high definition with English 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio, French 5.1 Dolby Digital and Spanish 5.1 Dolby Digital with English, English SDH, French, Spanish and Brazilian Portuguese subtitles. The disc breakdown is as follows:

    Disc 1:
    • Commentary by Michael Bay, Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman

    Disc 2:
    • The Human Factor: Exacting Revenge of the Fallen—This multi-chapter documentary chronicles the entire creation of the film and includes interviews with the cast and crew:
    o Seeds of Vengeance - Development and Design - After the overwhelming success of 2007’s Transformers, how do the filmmakers top themselves for the sequel?
    o Domestic Destruction – Production: United States - Michael Bay believes in going big: Big action and big explosions. Cast and crew are pushed to the limit as they traverse the U.S. from New Mexico to Pennsylvania.
    o Joint Operations – Production: Military - No other filmmaker in the world enjoys the kind of military access and cooperation Michael Bay has. Here we see just how efficient our armed forces are and the awe and respect shown by the cast.
    o Wonders of the World – Production: Middle East - You can’t really reproduce Egypt anywhere but Egypt so off we go to Giza and Luxor.
    o Start Making Sense - Editing - In order to turn over the massive amount of film as quickly as possible to VFX, four editors work tirelessly in a unique tag-team approach to shape the film.
    o Under the Gun – Visual Effects – Revenge of the Fallen features the most complicated VFX in film history. So complicated in fact that the filmmakers were unsure they would make the deadline. The DEVASTATOR VFX alone required 83% of ILM’s total render farm capacity.
    o Running the Gauntlet – Post-Production and Release - Working seven days a week, Michael Bay and company usher the film through sound design, Digital Intermediate color-timing and a globe-trotting whirlwind of premieres.

    This sounds like they won't be going the IMAX route like The Dark Knight. That film (on blu-ray) featured the IMAX version and enlarged the screen on the particular shots filmed in IMAX. And if the IMAX release of 'Fallen' did have extended fight scenes, it would seem those are not included in this package, unless in the Extended Scenes section of the disc. I suppose, later on they'll double dip like they do with most any other movie on dvd/blu-ray.

    All in all.... I'll still buy it! I like the short release window... November/December seems too long to wait.

    Disc 1:
    • Commentary by Michael Bay...:

    "Look at Bumblebee, doesn't he look awesome?! The kids love an awesome yellow robot!"
    "It was so awesome making this movie, Megan and Shia are awesome. They acted awesome!"
    "Wasn't it hilarious how I put in testicles on a huge robot? It's awesome!"
    "I coloured Sideswipe gray because it's not so awesome filming red cars. Also, I think it's awesome how I chose him to be a Chevy and not a Lambo. They're not awesome. And they're foreign."
    "Look! Awesome explosion! Awesome robot! Awesome shooting there, doesn't it look totally awesome?!"

    The Transformers 1&2 2xDVD/4xBR were listed on Amazon.co.uk as being out the end of November, but hopefully the fact that they have removed this date means that all version of ROTF will be out sooner, maybe around the same time as in the US. There's nor reason why we should get the DVD any later seeing as we had the cinema release a few days earlier.

    Anyway, the Blue Ray extras sound cool, so it makes me doubly glad I got my HD TV and Blue Ray player yesterday! :)

    Lemme guess....

    The regular DVD isn't gonna have hardly anything in terms of bonus footage and such, therby forcing those of us who are way to poor to buy Bluray players and HD TV's to sell our body parts, wives, girlfriends, children, Toy collections, clothing, houses, and pets, to go out and buy them? How lame. :( 

    *sigh* when will the poor folk ever get a damned break?

    my list of impossible purchases grows yet again.

    I would have liked an ILM commentary and to hear what goes into the movie on that front with the designs and whatnot. Actor commentary would be a bad idea though considering the "talent" involved.

    That's what I was wondering. We know we are getting a new film. Wonder if it's just some cheap announcement about who's back or is going to give us a little taste. Maybe some ideas they are kicking around? Anyone have any ideas as to how the story might play out? I know we kid around with the 3rd one being like "the wrath of Devastator's balls", or "Makaela's lips explode" but seriously. Anyone have any info? Will they be following the typical hero formula?

    I must have missed it. Where exactly does it say there is extra footage? Or for that matter, where is info on IMAX footage? You would assume it would be included in the official press release.

    Never mind, now I see it, at least the extended scenes bit, on disc 2.

    You forgot:
    "Eff the Effing fans. those c-sucking losers will ignore my shortcomings just because I put their little wetdream on sceen."

    "Who needs decent dialog, understandable script, or character building? George Lucas never had a sci-fi film with those, so why should I?"
