‘King Kong vs. Godzilla’ and ‘King Kong Escapes’ are Coming to Blu-ray

King-Kong-Godzilla-boxUniversal Studios Home Entertainment has revealed that both 1962’s King Kong vs. Godzilla and 1967’s King Kong Escapes will be making their way to Blu-ray. The titles will be released individually and are expected in stores by April 1st. No bonus features have been mentioned, but we’ll provide more details and the official cover art in the near future:

King Kong vs. Godzilla: “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 Escapes: “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.”
