As befits a movie that has done over a billion dollars at the global box office, Paramount Home Media Distribution is giving Transformers: Age of Extinction an impressive home video release – at least on Blu-Ray and 3D Blu-Ray.
The Blu-Ray/DVD Combo Pack is a three-disc set with over three hours of extras. Extras like: Bay On Action – an in-depth interview with Michael Bay about his vision and approach to the film’s high-octane action sequences; the eight-part making of documentary, Evolution Within, Extinction and an Angry Birds Transformers trailer ‘where birds and pigs turn into Autobots and Deceptihogs, creating havoc on Piggy Island’ – and that’s just for starters. (The 3D Blu-Ray contains all the same extras plus the film as seen in IMAX).
Transformers: Age of Extinction will be available in all physical formats on September 30th – and on Digital HD two weeks earlier, on September 16th. Follow the jump for a complete list of extras.
