A Better Tomorrow Trilogie ab August auf HK Blu-ray Disc

Nachdem das koreanische Remake schon seit einiger Zeit hochauflösend erhältlich ist, hat sich Kam & Ronson nun endlich auch entschlossen alle drei Teile von John Woos (bzw. später Tsui Harks) A Better Tomorrow Serie auf Blu-ray Disc in Hong Kong zu veröffentlichen. Erscheinungstermin ist der 5. August, die Scheiben werden vermutlich nur auf Region A Playern abspielbar sein.
Ich hoffe ja inständig, daß sich das Label bei diesen Veröffentlichungen mehr Mühe gibt als bei ihren bisherigen Klassikserien wie Police Story oder Once Upon A Time in China, wirklich dran glauben tue ich aber nicht…

Trailer zum Taiwan Epos Seediq Bale

Trailer zum taiwanesischen Actiondrama Seediq Bale von Regisseur Wei Te-sheng, der Dank Produzent John Woo vier Stunden lang mit viel Krach und Bumm den Kampf des Seediq Stammes gegen die japanischen Invasoren um 1930 rum zelebrieren darf.
Das Epos wird in zwei Teile gesplittet, die Anfang September in die Kinos Taiwans landen. Bei so großen Namen (Woo zieht ja immer) dürfte es sicher auch nicht lange dauern, bis sich ein internationaler Vertrieb findet. Ich hofffe mal, daß man dann auch die komplette Fassung zu sehen bekommt und keine komprimierte “internationale” Version wie bei Red Cliff.

Reign of Assassins: HK DVD und Blu-ray Disc im November

Ich habe mich in letzter Zeit ja ein bisschen zurück gehalten wenn es um DVD und Blu-ray Disc Veröffentlichungen aus Hong Kong geht, aber ich dachte mir, daß diese Meldung ein paar von euch, die nicht regelmässig im Asian Blu-ray Guide vorbei schauen interessieren dürfte.
YesAsia hat nämlich frisch die Hong Konger DVD und Blu-ray Disc von John Woos Reign of Assassins gelistet. Die Scheiben sollen am 25. November erscheinen und (wie für Mega Star üblich) mit englischen Untertiteln ausgestattet sein. Als Regionalcode der Blu-ray Disc wird aktuell Code A angegeben, aber auch hier zeigt sich Mega Star oft recht importfreundlich.
[Danke an Supavince für den Hinweis]

Get the Flash Player to see the wordTube Media Player.

Synopsis:

428AD, Bodhi, a Southern India prince became a Buddhist monk and set off for China, earning a hallowed reputation as a mystical martial artist. Following his death, his remains mysteriously disappeared.

Hundreds of years later, Zhang, a high-ranking court official, is assassinated by Drizzle. Zhang’s son Jingxiu, whilst mourning his father’s death, is assailed by a group assassins. They leave him for dead, but somehow he survives and escapes their clutches.

Drizzle, a talented warrior herself, finds herself in possession of Bodhi’s remains, and begins her quest to return them to their rightful resting place at Yunhe Temple. The Black Stone, a team of deadly assassins who employed Drizzle, are also after the remains and the powerful secret they hold. To hide from The Black Stone, Drizzle undergoes drastic facial surgery and changes her name to Zeng Jing (Michelle Yeoh). She flees to Beijing, where she meets and falls in love with Jiang, soon to become her husband.

After a confrontation in Beijing, Zeng Jing’s identity is uncovered and both she and Jiang must flee for their lives. As Zeng Jing kills off members of the gang while they are on the run, she quickly realises Jiang is actually Jingxiu, and he is seeking to avenge his father’s death. This leads to a lethal triangle and a fight to death between our hero Zeng Jing, Jiang and The Black Stone.

The only question remains who will be the last ones standing to uncover the secret of Bodhi’s remains?
