Universal Studios Home Entertainment is bringing two giant monster catalog titles to Blu-ray in April: Ishirô Honda’s King Kong vs. Godzilla(1962) and King Kong Escapes (1967). Both Toho Company films make their Blu-ray debut on April 1st.
Official Synopsis: When an underhanded pharmaceutical company goes to a remote tropical island to steal King Kong for advertising purposes, they get more than they bargained for when the gigantic ape attacks an unsuspecting village and an enormous octopus. Meanwhile, far below the sea, a submarine crew unleashes reptilian terror when they melt a block of ice and release the ferocious Godzilla from his icy lair. When both destructive monsters descend on Tokyo, it’s a fight that holds the future of mankind in the balance in this knock-out film that was the first theatrical release to bring its larger-than-life contenders to the big screen in glorious color.
King Kong vs. Godzilla is presented in 1080p with a DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 Mono track. No special features are included.
Synopsis: King Kong, having fallen in love with the beautiful Lt. Susan Watson (Linda Miller), is kidnapped from his Mondo Island home by the evil Dr. Hu (Eisei Amamoto) to dig for precious gems in a mine when the robot, MechaKong, is unable to complete the task. Soon, though, the machine and the real Kong engage in a tremendous battle that threatens to level Japan.
King Kong Escapes is presented in 1080p with a DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 Mono track. No special features are included.
