Consumers who haven’t picked up Michael Bay’s 2007 hit Transformers on DVD or Blu-ray Disc yet have a new reason: Paramount Home Entertainment will offer an exclusive sneak peek of the sequel Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen through a repromotion of the first film starting June 16.
The scene, which shows characters Sam (Shia LaBeouf) and Mikaela (Megan Fox) attempting to escape from the Decepticons, is only available on a secure Web site via a code included on the DVD, or via BD Live for the Blu-ray. Also included are two behind-the-scenes featurettes from the sequel, and 25 minutes of new bonus material from the first film, including deleted scenes, Fox’s audition tapes and additional featurettes.
The new material also will be available via BD Live to previous owners of the Blu-ray version, according to a Paramount spokesperson.
Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen hits theaters June 24 from Paramount and DreamWorks.
