Heck they might even cut the s#!t out of it to make things more kid-friendly. The Fathom edition of 'DBZ: Battle of Gods' cut out the brief scene where Mr. Satan was actually called such. Oh well, going regardless.
I probably should've gone to some of those Hayao Miyazaki movies this summer, but Fathom is almost entirely about Rifftrax for me.

There exist two different versions of that movie, even in Japanese. An 85-minute theatrical version, and a 105-minute extended version that was first shown on Fuji TV. It was the shorter theatrical version that was screened in theaters outside of Japan. Both versions of the movie are available, in both Japanese with subtitles and in English dubbed form, on its DVD/Blu-Ray releases by FUNimation.Bumblevivisector wrote:The Fathom edition of 'DBZ: Battle of Gods' cut out the brief scene where Mr. Satan was actually called such.

I guess I can only hope that enough pre-tickets sell to motivate them to add a Tuesday Encore. This is not unprecedented. Although it was Funimation (and not Fathom), dates were extended for Shin Godzilla's limited release in September 2016, although to be fair, that was a new film, not one that's 31 years old. Oh well, c'est la vie. I guess that's what I have the Blu-Ray, 2 DVD's, and 3 VHS versions for.
As for what the audience will see however, I'd love to see an original print from 1986, but I'm sure those were not preserved. It will no doubt be a digital broadcast of the Blu-ray, though it would be nice if somehow they showed the 4K source (since S!F said the Blu ray came from a 4K newly restored Print). I'm sure it wont be edited in any fashion though.
Aside from seeing the film originally in theaters in 1986, I saw the film at a Hotel Ballroom at SDCC in 1993 (where I proved to my friends the swear word existed that had been cut from all VHS up to that time). Also I saw it at Botcon 2000, though I think that was just a projection of the Rhino DVD which had just came out IIRC

So it has been updated, and my local theaters have chosen for Sep. 27...
500 years you've had to show king lear and you pick Sep. 27, of all the low down dirty sidewindin' snake in the grass, good for nothing, tin-horned, yellow bellied, wagon rutted,
Wheelie is Shakespeare you nerf-herders!
Maybe there will be a second showing if there are enough ticket sales.
Just a heads up,MORE theaters have been added!
One an hour away from me now.

I'm even breaking my "no more regular movie theater" policy to enjoy its return next month.
You got the touch!! You got the powerrrr!!!

This Saturday though I have invited some friends to watch the Blu ray in my home. We usually do double features at whoever hosts the event pics the theme (We've done 80's sci-fi and Westerns), so I'm doing animation. I would think GI Joe:TM would be a natural pairing for TF:TM, but I have some others I'm considering...Lensman, Batman: Mask of the Phantasm, Titan A.E. are some of my favorite animated films...

I must have saw it the first week of September, because I clearly remember watching Five Faces of Darkness when it debuted. I had really connected with Hot Rod during the movie, so when it got to Rodimus Prime's "death scene", I just couldn't believe it. What monsters those Decepticons were! I had to leave for school at that commercial break in order to catch the bus in time, so I sat in school all day wondering what the Autobots were going to do now that Optimus Prime and Rodimus Prime had died, not knowing yet that Rodimus Prime was ultimately fine and that Springer did not become leader of the Autobots. I was very distraught! It wasn't until I saw the rest of the episode during the afternoon re-airing that I got to find out that Rodimus Prime was actually OK, but I'll never forget that very long school day worrying about the poor Autobots and being sad that Optimus Prime and Rodimus Prime had died!
Once the movie came out on VHS, I was absolutely obsessed over it. About a year after the movie had come out, I used to brag that I had seen the movie over 50 times, and then 100 times (I might have been exaggerating a little bit, but I'm sure I hit those goals not long after). To this day, it's one of the only movies that I can recite almost line for line while watching it. It's burned into my brain like a favorite song.
This movie has a very strong place in my childhood. It definitely left its mark, intentionally or not, and continues to be one of my absolute favorite things to watch. It helped cement my love for all things Transformers and might very well have been what kept me as a Transformers fan during those pivotal years in my childhood.
Bought my tickets today so I can go see it with my wife and two daughters. My daughter is 9 now so it'll definitely be a passing of torch moment (though it's often a staple of background TV noise while I'm working so I'm sure she's familiar with most of it already). Can't wait to see it on the big screen again!

Saw it again at a movie theatre with my parents in Greensboro, NC three weeks later. There was a Toys r us in the same mall where we saw the movie and my Dad took me to buy a Transformer. I lied and said I had all the figures on the shelves so he could buy me Ultra Magnus, who happened to be the most expensive of the assortment at $25.
