Transformers: The Movie (Reconstructed) in September

Metrodome have announced the UK DVD release of Transformers: The Movie (Reconstructed) for 5th September 2005 priced at £15.99. Transformers The Movie, the smash-hit film based on the biggest toy and animated TV series phenomenon of the 1980s, is coming to DVD in an eye-dazzling, fully restored version packed with an arsenal of exclusive extra features courtesy of Metrodome. Transformers: The Movie (Reconstructed) arrives boasting a brand new transfer from the original film negative that has exposed, for the first time, the complete picture image drawn by the film's animators. This means more Megatron, more Starscream and more Optimus Prime than has ever been seen before! Add to that an ear-pounding Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound option and you have the ultimate Transformers DVD experience.

To create the remarkable restoration of the original film image for this exclusive DVD release, Metrodome has gone back to the original 35 mm (1.33:1 ratio) full frame negative and placed it within a widescreen format of 16:9 by creating an anamorphic transfer that respects the film's full screen format. The result is a side-curtained 1.33:1 image within a 1.78:1 ratio that fully preserves the entire field of potential viewable negative and presents the complete image with the maximum amount of visual detail possible.

Features include:

  • Alternate US/UK Version footage
  • Cinex colour and exposure check test footage
  • Final Titles check test footage
  • US theatrical trailer and TV spots
  • Japanese trailer
  • Optional Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound
  • Autobot and Decepticon Main Menus
  • Character Biographies
  • "Reconstructed" Collector's Booklet
  • Episode One of the Takara Transformers "Headmasters" TV series
  • Movie Script (DVD ROM content)
