After earning nearly $300 million in worldwide box office grosses during its theatrical run, G.I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra is set to make another boatload of money this November 3rd, when the film comes out on DVD and Blu-ray. Available in multiple formats, G.I. Joe fans can take the film home for $19.99 as a one-disc DVD, for $24.99 as a two-disc DVD, or for $29.99 as a two-disc Blu-ray.
If you opt for the two-disc DVD or Blu-ray, you'll get access to a digital copy of the film, as well as two featurettes, "The Big Bang Theory: The Making of G.I. JOE" and “Next-Gen Action: The Amazing Visual FX and Design of G.I. JOE.” Oh yeah, there's one more special feature I would be remiss to mention. It's a little hard to explain, so I'll let the press release do the talking.
"The two-disc DVD and Blu-ray packages will also feature augmented reality technology that will allow owners to participate in an exclusive 3D holographic G.I. JOE combat experience, utilizing their webcams and a special website. Fans will be able to choose between SNAKE EYES and STORM SHADOW, two of the most popular G.I. JOE and COBRA characters, and battle against their enemies one-on-one in an immersive 3D video game."
Hmm... Sounds...interesting? Anyway, if you enjoyed G.I. Joe in the theaters and you have a Blu-ray player, I would recommend springing 30 bucks to pick up the movie. At the very least, you'll have another mindless action movie for your rainy day collection.
If, however, you thought G.I. Joe was a disaster, guess you should let Paramount know by keeping your wallet closed.
Will you be picking up G.I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra on DVD or Blu-ray?
