Planet Hulk On DVD and Blu-ray

From Marvel.com --


He was a monster, impossible to control, too dangerous to ignore.

So Earth’s mightiest heroes exiled him into outer space.

But now the Incredible Hulk crash lands on the distant planet Sakaar, ruled by the tyrannical Red King. Sold into slavery, Hulk becomes the planet’s mightiest gladiator—but his new masters get more than they bargained for when he forges a bond of brotherhood with his fellow fighters: crafty insectoid Miek, ruthless rock-man Korg, ex-shadow pirest Hiroim, and the noble-born rebel Elloe.

Unlike Earth, the desperate people of Sakaar believe a monster is just what they need. But will the Hulk be the one to save their world… or destroy it?

On February 2, one of Marvel's most epic sagas of all-time lands in stores on DVD and Blu-ray Disc as "Planet Hulk" makes its incredible animated debut. However, this Thursday, January 14, the gamma-irradiated excitement hits a new level when The Paley Center for Media plays host on two coasts to the exclusive first screenings of the film, along with panels featuring comic and animation talent, as well as limited edition giveaways and creator signings.

Co-sponsored by New York Comic Con and Newsarama.com in association with Marvel Animation and Lionsgate Home Entertainment, the screenings will begin at 6:30 PM local time in New York City and Los Angeles respectively with panel discussions and signings following immediately after at 8:30 PM.

World Wrestling Entertainment's Matt Striker, color commentator of Friday Night Smackdown, will moderate a panel featuring Marvel Editor-in-Chief Joe Quesada, Hulk editor Mark Paniccia, President of Marvel Animation Eric Rollman, and INCREDIBLE HULK writer Greg Pak, the architect behind the original "Planet Hulk" comic book storyline.

In Los Angeles, Blair Butler, host of the Fresh Ink segment on G4's "Attack of the Show" as well as the writer and producer of the "Slasher School" animated shorts, will welcome Emmy Award-nominated and Eisner Award-winning HULK writer Jeph Loeb, "Planet Hulk" screenwriter Greg Johnson, Supervising Director Frank Paur, Supervising Producer Josh Fine and the voice of the Hulk himself, Rick D. Wasserman, to discuss the film and comics.

Fans should also keep their eyes on Newsarama.com and NewYorkComicCon.com for further announcements, exclusive clips from the upcoming film, inside interviews with the panelists and more. Also, check out Marvel.com's hub page!
