Funimation announced Wednesday that it will release Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods on Blu-ray and DVD in North America on October 7. The home video release will include two versions of the film: an uncut version with an additional 20 minutes of footage not shown in theaters, and the theatrical cut.
Funimation describes the story:
Following the events of the Dragon Ball Z television series, after the defeat of Majin Buu, a new power awakens and threatens humanity. Beerus, an ancient and powerful God of Destruction, searches for Goku after hearing rumors of the Saiyan warrior who defeated Frieza. Realizing the threat Beerus poses to their home planet, the Z-fighters must find a way to stop him before it's too late. Only Goku, humanity's last hope, can ascend to the level of a legendary Super Saiyan God and stop Beerus's from destroying Earth, and possibly the entire universe!
It currently ranks as #11 in theatrically released anime of all time in North America, under Howl's Moving Castle, The Wind Rises, Digimon: The Movie, Spirited Away, Pokemon 3: The Movie, The Secret World of Arrietty, Yu-Gi-Oh! The Movie, Pokemon: The Movie 2000, and Pokemon: The First Movie.
The September issue of Shueisha's V Jump magazine announced last month that a new Dragon Ball Z movie will open during the Golden Week string of holidays next spring.
