Moviegoers who flocked to cinemas to see “Kong: Skull Island” will be happy to know that the film will soon be released on Blu-ray and IMAX 3D. Warner Bros. and Jordan Vogt-Roberts’ movie will get an artwork and special treatment this June. Its Blu-ray will feature a lot of extra goodies and accessories for fans, such as all deleted scenes.

It serves as the second installment in Legendary’s MonsterVerse, following “Godzilla” – and soon to be followed by two new films. “Godzilla: King of Monsters” is scheduled for 2019 and “Godzilla vs. Kong” will hit a theater near you in 2020. From this, we can assume that Vogt-Roberts is capable enough to jump start a new interconnected film franchise.

An official Blu-ray artwork

Per an announcement from Warner Bros., the official Blu-ray artwork will be released on June 20, 2017. It means the film will be made available in a variety of packs, including an Ultra HD Blu-ray pack, Blu-ray combo pack, DVD, and Blu-ray 3D combo pack.

Every package will consist of the full film, videos related to its characters, inside stories, and behind-the-camera scenes, as well as a couple of deleted scenes. “Kong: Skull Island” is set to release on 4K and DVD on July 18, 2017.
