Tranformers: Dark of the Moon - 9/30/11

UPDATED INFO, per HD Room:

The Friday, September 30 debut for Transformers: Dark of the Moon on Blu-ray and DVD is exactly three months after the film's theatrical release back in late June. Much like Avatar, Paramount will be releasing staggered versions of the film on home video to both appease the demand of those who want it now, as well as those who want as many extras as possible.

There will be no bonus features on this first version of Transformers: Dark of the Moon on Blu-ray, but it will include the DVD version and a digital copy. Instead, the emphasis has been placed on maximizing the technical presentation with a 1080p transfer, 7.1 Dolby TrueHD Audio, as well as English 5.1 Discrete Dolby Digital and English 2.0 Discrete Surround Dolby Digital tracks, both a first for the studio.

Later this year, reportedly in November, Paramount will roll out deluxe Blu-ray 2D, 3D and DVD versions loaded with special features. Per Michael Bay, "...we put a lot of effort into the 3D experience for the theatrical release and I want to make sure we get it right for home viewing--and that process takes time. So stay tuned for an even more incredible release that will include the film on Blu-ray 3D and loads of bonus features."

I'm guessing this is also the US artwork:

No 3D No sale for me.
I think that artwork is for the UK release since it says triple play.

Not to derail this thread but why can't they leave those horrid "triple play/combo pack" banners as removeable stickers instead of making them part of the coverart?

And why release a separate 3D release with a 2D BD?

The BD was unofficially announced a while back when it was confirmed it'll have a 7.1 track.

Arent their rules against knocking on people for spelling and gramatical errors?

I guess you never type anything on a touchscreen phone do you?
I have no use for people who have nothing better to do with their time then to correct other peoples obviously unintended mistakes.

I suspect that triple play banner is not going to be on the us cover art since that has been something that the studios have thus far only used on international releases.

Oh, please: with the amount of errors you make (and the types of errors) you can't blame typing on a phone.

I agree with you here; I think it's very unlikely we see this eyesore on the U.S. release.

seriously that was obviously a typo. and no one is perfect.
True i am guilty of rushing to type out a response and dont pay attention to proper grammar, spelling or puncuation on here more often than not, but guess what so are alot of others on here as well, and its a freaking message board so get over it.
Its not like its an important document or news article, in anycase there is a rule against commenting on a posters spelling/grammar.
and again if someone really has that much time on their hands they feel the need to correct that on a message board, then i feel sorry for them.

now why not stick to the subject at hand the movie.

Wouldn't the artwork have the UK ratings?

Using a phone or iPad is no excuse for poor grammar/spelling, it takes only a moment to check these things. Don't assume that everyone here is in a hurry to read your thoughts.

Saw this twice in theaters,and loved it. Hopefully this gets 2 discs on Blu-Ray with a nice making of documentary like the 1st 2 got.

Enough with it allready this thread isnt about my spelling error,its about Transformers!
Iam hardly the only person here who makes spelling/grammar errors.
Get over it allready or block me and you wont have to read them geesh.
I dont make assumptions on anything, either you want to read what i have to say or you dont.
No big loss to me if you dont want to or do want to, but if you dont then just block me allready instead derailing this thread over a stupid extra P in the word triple.

Aside from the lack of the ratings, the only other difference I see is the Transformers cover says "CONTAINS: BLU-RAY + DVD + DIGITAL COPY". The UK IM 2 says "INCLUDES..."

Not sure if that means anything.

I own 1 & 2, so this is bound to wind up on my shelf. I loved the action.

Hope that Super 8 release date is real as I'm in the US then and might be able to pick up a store exclusive.

as it should - thankfully Paramount isn't as dumb as Fox in nixing 7.1 soundmixes on it's bluray releases.

Neither of those Wal-mart or FYE dates are correct.

Super 8 is October, Transformers is Nov.

Target.com's listing has new artwork, which I have added to the OP. I also added their item #. A member at blu-ray.com works at Target and they keyed in the item # at the register and posted this:

I'll be surprised if this isn't simply the cover for a single-disc/barebones edition. The 2-diskers usually only feature Optimus Prime on the cover.
