It’s time to wash away the stench of Michael Bay.
The only good Transformers movie is getting a re-release this year in time for its 30th anniversary.
The Transformers: The Movie has been digitally remastered in 4k and will be released for the first time on Blu-ray in the UK on December 12.
According to the official press release from Manga Entertainment, the disc “comes with a highly collectible Steelbook packaging that features striking key art, all-new HD transfer of the movie in widescreen and full frame on two Blu-rays, immersive bonus content including brand-new featurettes, plus a digital copy of the movie”.
The animated film boasted an all-star cast of Peter Cullen, Eric Idle, Judd Nelson, Leonard Nimoy, Frank Welker and Scatman Crothers. It was also the final movie role for Orson Welles, who voiced giant planet-eating villain Unicron.
Arriving at the height of the Transformers craze in the 80s, this big screen spinoff swiftly became a cult classic thanks to its of-the-moment rock power ballad soundtrack from Stan Bush and the heart-shattering death of Optimus Prime.
