In a future that's been devastated by a nuclear war, major conflicts are settled between two opponents, one fighting for the Market and the other for the Confederation. The twist: each warrior fights from the cockpit of a massive robot, similar in part to Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim. Robot Jox, the sci-fi flick from Re-Animator director Stuart Gordon, will make its Blu-ray debut next summer via Scream Factory.

From Scream Factory: "Our month-long "Shocktober" celebration continues with another film to reveal. We veer more into sci-fi territory this time: 1989’s ROBOT JOX (helmed by legendary From Beyond and Dolls Director Stuart Gordon) will make its debut on the Blu-ray format in Summer 2015! No other details to report at this time.

We still have a few more surprise reveals between now and Halloween so keep checking back here on the page to be the first to see them."

Robot Jox synopsis (via "Directed by Stuart Gordon (Re-Animator), Robot Jox reveals a world where nations settle their territorial disputes by a single combat between two giant machines. Piloted by national heroes Achilles (Gary Graham, TV's Alien Nation) and Alexander (Paul Koslo, Shadowchaser), the robots meet in Death Valley to fight for the greatest prize of all: Alaska. But when Achilles' machine crushes 300 spectators, the match ends in a draw. Refusing to face Alexander in a rematch, Achilles is replaced by Athena (Anne-Marie Johnson, TV's Melrose Place), a genetically-engineered combat fighter. So when the GenJox is nearly killed and the game is forfeited, Achilles avenges their honor by challenging Alexander to a winner-take-all death match, in this heavy-metal, sci-fi adventure."
