Johnnie To’s Vengance: French DVD & Blu-ray Disc in December

Sometimes, but just sometimes it must be great to live in a film-loving nation like France, because our friendly south-western neighbors were not only the first that could see Johnnie To’s Vengeance on the big screen back in May, but will also be the first to get a DVD and Blu-ray Disc release. On December 11th, TF1 Video will release the film in three flavors, a standard one disc edition, a two disc collector’s edition and of a Blu-ray Disc edition in a nice looking steelbook.

Sadly none of these releases will included English subtitles and TF1 Video also has the bad habit to enforce the French subtitles when the original (mostly english in Vengeance) language track is selected. But since Vengeance opened in Hong Kong on August 20th, I bet English friendly HK DVD and Blu-ray Disc releases will pop up by the end of the year as well. Until then, enjoy the film’s (ironically French subbed) trailer below.

    Wirklich eine Schande, dass auf englische Untertitel verzichtet wurde. Hätte ich zu gerne direkt gekauft. Nun muss ich auf das HK Release warten, nehme ich an… :bah:

    Nicht einmal englische Subs….
    Schade, warte schon länger auf den Film.
