‘Transformers’ Imax Footage Comes to Wal-Mart19 Oct, 2009 By: John Latchem
Before Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen hit theaters, director Michael Bay told us he hoped to include the special Imax extended scenes on the Blu-ray Disc of the film.
Turns out, fans will have to buy the movie from Wal-Mart to see the footage on disc.
Wal-Mart is offering a “Big Screen” edition of the film on DVD and Blu-ray, which apparently will offer the same bonus content as the regular retail releases, but with the Imax version of the movie instead of the wide theatrical cut. We’ll know more once the discs are on shelves tomorrow.
In other retail exclusives, Best Buy is offering the Blu-ray with an Optimus Prime head replica for $44.99 ($41.99 at midnight sales). This box also includes a $50 gift card to sideshowcollectibles.com, so for hardcore collectors, it practically pays for itself.
Target will offer the two-DVD edition in an exclusive transforming Bumblebee case.
