From director Michael Bay and executive producer Steven Spielberg, in association with Hasbro, TRANSFORMERS : DARK OF THE MOON explodes with high-octane action when a mysterious event from Earth’s past erupts into the present day threatening to bring a war to Earth so big that the TRANSFORMERS alone will not be able to save the earth.  Shia LaBeouf (Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull), Josh Duhamel (Life As We Know It), Tyrese Gibson (Four Brothers) and John Turturro (The Good Shepherd) have returned along with a host of new stars including Patrick Dempsey (“Grey’s Anatomy”), Frances McDormand (Fargo) and John Malkovich (Beowulf).  The film also features the voices of Leonard Nimoy (“Star Trek”) and Hugo Weaving (Captain America: The First Avenger) and introduces newcomer Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.

“For fans who can’t wait, the Blu-ray™ release will deliver an awesome ride with the movie in stunning high definition and a 7.1 Dolby TrueHD soundtrack that was personally overseen by our phenomenal supervising sound mixer just for the Blu-ray™,” said director Michael Bay.  “As you know, we put a lot of effort into the 3D experience for the theatrical release and I want to make sure we get it right for home viewing—and that process takes time.  So stay tuned for an even more incredible release that will include the film on Blu-ray™ 3D and loads of bonus features.”The Blu-ray™ 3D is slated for a later release.

TRANSFORMERS : DARK OF THE MOON will be available on Blu-ray™ in high definition 2D (Rs.1299), as well as on single-disc DVD (Rs.599).  A box-set including all the three films of Transformers will be released on DVD (Rs.999) & Blu-ray™ (Rs.2999) formats.
