Pacific Rim was released October 15, 2013 on DVD and Blu-Ray.[1] All three physical releases (DVD, Blu-Ray, Blu-Ray 3D) are available for purchase on Amazon.com and other online retails stores.[2] The 3D "Ultimate Edition" Blu-Ray was released on the same date as well.[1]

Release Information

Prior to the film's release, Guillermo del Toro stated that there were over thirty minutes of deleted content that had been removed from the film. This content was to be released exclusively on Blu-Ray.[3] During the theatrical run of the film, HighDefDigest.com announced the film was available for pre-order on Amazon.com.[2]

In an later interview with del Toro, the director stated that there would be no director's cut. "This is my director’s cut. There will not be an extended cut right now, we’re not planning on it".[4]. del Toro stated that because of the shrinking DVD and Blu-Ray market, the special features for Pacific Rim won't be as extravagant as his previous home video releases.[4] "If you buy a Sideshow maquette or you buy a DVD or a Blu-ray, I can guarantee you I put many personal hours of effort into it. I didn’t delegate it, I supervised every piece of merchandising that is significant."[4]

He originally planned on releasing the film on home video with multiple deleted and alternate scenes that included three different endings of the film.[5][6] On October 1, 2013, Pacific Rim and its subsequent special features were released on iTunes.com for download.[7] The following week, October 15, 2013, the film was released on DVD and Blu-Ray.
