Dragon Ball Z: Revival of F in DVD, Blu-Ray out in October after succesful US ; Torrents for the film are rampant
After its successful release in the US Theaters, Dragon Ball Z Revival of F is soon to be released in DVD and Blu-Ray to be made available next month. The film is currently among the Top 10 list of highest grossing domestic anime films of all time after its theatrical release.
The latest installment in the long-running franchise received a very likeable response from its followers in US earning $1.9 million on its opening day. As reported by PR Newswire, the film's total gross amounted to $8 million dollars and outperformed director Hayao Miyasaki's films, Howl's Moving Castle, and The Wind Rises.
FUNimation Films which distributed and marketed the films in the United States expressed their gladness with CEO Gen Fukunaga saying, "I'm so thankful to the loyal fans who embraced this movie and who have been with us on this journey since we first introduced Dragon Ball Z to American audiences twenty years ago."
As reported by Attack of the Fanboy, Fukunaga revealed that they are now pursuing a home video release for the film. "We're grateful to all our fans for their tremendous response and support for the theatrical release of "Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection 'F'", Fukunaga said. "I am especially pleased to bring them the home video release so quickly after the theatrical run so they can enjoy the movie over and over again, just as we will", he added.
The abovementioned home videos will be in the form of Digital HD, which will be available on October 9, and the Collector's Edition and Blu-Ray/DVD which will be released on October 20. As reported by IGN, both the Collector's Edition and Blu-Ray will feature a 50 minutes worth of extra features.
However, the Collector's Edition will be wrapped in premium packaging, and also comes with a set of four holographic Frieza postcards. The commodities are now available for pre-order in the film's official website, DragonBallZ.com.
Meanwhile, after its release in theaters came the torrents for the film. Websites for Torrents are currently advertising Dragon Ball Z Revival of F with some of them even offering English subtitles for the film.
Torrents for films are rampant nowadays, however, a lot of them illegally filmed in the cinema or ripped from the DVD which is also the reason why several parts of the movie are lacking or low in video and/or audio quality.
Dragon Ball Z: Revival of F was directed by Tadayoshi Yamamuro and written by Akira Toriyama. It was originally set to be released in US theaters from August 4 to 12, but was extended to August 17 due to popular demand.
