This summer, fans will see a twenty-seventh volume hit store shelves and online outlets. And this fall, fans get even more of a treat when Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie will be re-issued by Shout! Factory on a Blu-ray/DVD combo pack.
Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie originally debuted in theaters in 1996. The movie was centered on the 1955 sci-fi classic, This Island Earth.
