"They are doing something huge, and certainly we are here to help," says Jim Wilson of Sony BMG Home Entertainment.
The DVD will have remastered full-screen and widescreen editions of the film, which includes Orson Welles' final performance. Extras include commentary, deleted footage and interviews. And there's a viewing mode in which Transformer pop culture references pop up throughout. Plus: Hasbro has an action figure line due in November.
