Godzilla King of the Monsters DVD release date UK and when is it out on Blu-ray, iTunes and digital rental

Godzilla King of the Monsters DVD Blu-ray and digital release UK

Tackling the upside down clearly wasn’t enough to keep Millie Bobbie Brown busy, because she’s now in the mix with the film world’s most monstrous behemoth with the upcoming Godzilla King of the Monsters DVD, Blu-ray and digital release date (details below) just around the corner. It’s already available to pre-order from iTunes, Xbox ONE, PS4 and Amazon Video, so here’s the latest on the film including the rental release, age rating, runtime and digital file size.

The story is a direct sequel to the 2014 reboot of the Godzilla franchise where the King emerged victorious against the two MUTOs that were set loose on the world when a uranium mine collapsed in the Philippines. The sequel sees the release of a new set of massive creatures known as Titans leaving the big G-dog to face the might of Mothra, Rodan and his three-headed arch-enemy King Ghidorah.

Based on Japanese film studio Toho’s original stories, the first of which was written by Ishirō Honda, Takeo Murata, and Shigeru Kayama, the latest film in the series is a CGI monster battle explosion of epic proportions. Reviews were mixed with criticism of the weighting of all-out monster action over human characters and dialogue, but we’re thinking that the people that buy this when the DVD, Blu-ray and digital release rolls around might well be looking for a whole lot of stunning Kaiju destruction.

A few of the previous cast members are back from the previous film with Ken Watanabe (Inception) and Sally Hawkins (Paddington) back as Monarch scientists Dr. Ishirō Serizawa and Dr. Vivienne Graham, along with David Strathairn as Admiral William Stenz. They’re joined by Kyle Chandler as Dr. Mark Russell, a former Monarch employee and father of Maddison (Millie Bobby Brown’s character) and Charles Dance as the main human bad guy in the film.

DVD, Blu-ray, iTunes, Xbox ONE, PS4, Amazon and digital rental release date UK

The Godzilla King of the Monsters DVD and Blu-ray release date has been confirmed for the 7th October 2019 in the UK following its big screen debut back in May. As you’d expect for such a visually impressive film, the physical release will also include 3D Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD, so you’ll be able to choose between screen-popping visuals or crazy levels of monster fight definition. 

The digital release on iTunes, Amazon Video, Xbox ONE and PS4 will be out a little earlier, so you can expect it to be available to buy two weeks beforehand on the 21st September. You’ll also be able to get it on digital rental on the same date as the DVD and Blu-ray.

The Godzilla sequel has a hefty run time of 2 hour 12 minutes, which equates to a digital download size of 5.32Gb at 1080p HD and 2.25Gb for standard definition. Check your PC, Mac, PS4 or Xbox ONE storage space before you download to make sure that you’ve got enough room for it.

UK cinema release

Godzilla King of the Monsters had a UK cinema release date of Wednesday the 29th May 2019. It didn’t have much in the way of competition at the box office from new films out on the same weekend, but with both Rocketman and the Aladdin live action film out the week before and X-Men: Dark Phoenix the week after, it got a little overshadowed, especially with the mixed reviews it had.
