From the mind of cult-favorite Stuart Gordon (Re-Animator, From Beyond) comes Robot Jox, a thrilling sci-fi adventure that on July 7th will finally available on Blu-ray from Shout! Factory. Courtesy of the home distributor, we now have an early look at Robot Jox in HD ahead of its anticipated release.
The first clip features the giant robot laser fight scene between Achilles (Gary Graham) and his rival Alexander (Paul Koslo) in front of a cheering crowd. It’s entertaining as hell, especially if you appreciate good ol’ stop-motion animation, which will be heavily discussed in the bonus features of the Blu-ray. Below, we’ve included a portion of Koslo’s commentary on the visual effects for a sneak peek preview. As for the second clip, another fight breaks out during a training session with Achilles and his fellow partners.
If you enjoyed both clips today, then I’m sure you’ll love Robot Jox on Blu-ray, so make sure to get your hands on a copy next week.
