“Pacific Rim Uprising” Hits Digital June 5 and Blu-ray June 19

Pacific Rim Uprising, the sequel to Guillermo del Toro's monsters-vs.-robots classic, will hit digital platforms on June 5, with a home video release to follow on June 19.

While the sequel underperformed at home and abroad, the charm of John Boyega carried it across the finish line. The film will be available in a variety of formats, including 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD, as well as 3-D Blu-ray for those niche collectors. All versions will include a ton of bonus content, including deleted scenes, behind-the-scenes looks at the special effects and in-character videos. (They also devote an entire section to that unexpected twist.)

Take a sneak peek below at one of the special features "Hall of Heroes."

Pacific Rim Uprising will certainly be a favorite of fans and people with awesome TV and sound systems to show off to their friends.



About Kip Mooney

Kip Mooney
Like many film critics born during and after the 1980s, my hero is Roger Ebert. The man was already the best critic in the nation when he won the Pulitzer in 1975, but his indomitable spirit during and after his recent battle with cancer keeps me coming back to read not only his reviews but his insightful commentary on the everyday. But enough about a guy you know a lot about. I knew I was going to be a film critic—some would say a snob—in middle school, when I had to voraciously defend my position that The Royal Tenenbaums was only a million times better than Adam Sandler’s remake of Mr. Deeds. From then on, I would seek out Wes Anderson’s films and avoid Sandler’s like the plague. Still, I like to think of myself as a populist, and I’ll be just as likely to see the next superhero movie as the next Sundance sensation. The thing I most deplore in a movie is laziness. I’d much rather see movies with big ambitions try and fail than movies with no ambitions succeed at simply existing. I’m also a big advocate of fun-bad movies like The Room and most of Nicolas Cage’s work. In the past, I’ve written for The Dallas Morning News and the North Texas Daily, which I edited for a semester. I also contributed to Dallas-based Pegasus News, which in the circle of life, is now part of The Dallas Morning News, where I got my big break in 2007. Eventually, I’d love to write and talk about film full-time, but until that’s a viable career option, I work as an auditor for Wells Fargo. I hope to one day meet my hero, go to the Toronto International Film Festival, and compete on Jeopardy. Until then, I’m excited to share my love of film with you.
