Sony Pictures Home Entertainment will release the all-new Starship Troopers sequel, Starship Trooper: Marauder, July 29 on Blu-ray Disc. The release, which marks the return of Casper Van Dien’s “Johnny Rico” character to the series, will be day-and-date with the standard DVD debut.
Also arriving on July 29 will be the original Starship Troopers on Blu-ray Disc, exactly 11 years to the day it debuted on DVD. This film has long been rumored to be ready for Blu-ray and is a welcome addition to the ranks. At this time, Sony has not announced any plans for Starship Troopers 2: Hero of the Federation on Blu-ray.
Both films will include picture-in-picture functionality that dishes up interviews, graphics, special effects info and more throughout the films. In addition, the original Starship Troopers will include a Blu-ray exclusive Recruitment Test quiz game in addition to all the special features found on the DVD release.
Starship Trooper: Marauder will include two featurettes and two commentaries in addition to the picture-in-picture feature.
