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.

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?

Die Jungs von Wu-Jing.org haben das erste (recht spartanische) Poster sowie eine recht detailierte Plotbeschreibung zum kommenden Wuxia Abenteuer Rain of Swords in The Pugilistic World (Jianyu Jianghu) ausgebuddelt.
Rain of Swords wird unter anderem von John Woo und Terence Chang produziert während Su Chao Bin Regie führt. In den Hauptrollen wird es ab Sommer 2010 Michelle Yeoh, Jung Woo Sung, Barbie Hsu, Paw Hee Ching, Wang Xue Qi und Shawn Yue zu sehen geben.

Warner will be Good, Bad, Weird and Blu in Japan

Sieht so aus als ob die Japaner mal wieder das größte und leckerste Stück vom Veröffentlichungskuchen abbekommen.
Kim Ji-Woons Orientalwestern The Good, The Bad and the Weird ist zwar schon in mehreren Ländern auf Blu-ray Disc erschienen, jedoch hatte jede der Veröffentlichungen so ihre eigenen kleinen Macken und Dellen. So hat die britische Veröffentlichung von Icon Home Entertainment zwar beide Schnittfassungen an Bord, jedoch wurde bei beiden Fassungen an den Stuntszenen mit Pferden herumgeschnippelt.
Die koreanische Veröffentlichung im feinen Schuber und Digipak ist hier zwar ungeschnitten, bringt jedoch (wie die französische Blu-ray Disc) nur die internationale Schnittfassung mit.
Warner Japan hat nun via AV Watch angekündigt, die Nonplusultraversion mit beiden Schnittfassungen, voll funktionstüchtigen Pferdestunts und englischen Untertiteln am 10. Februar 2010 auf den Markt zu bringen. Einziges Manko dürfte hier nur der hohe Preis von aktuell rund 45€ + Porto werden…

The Good, The Bad and the Weird: Koreanische Blu-ray Disc

YesAsia hat als erster Händler ein Bilder der am 17. (oder am 30., je nach Händler) September erscheinenden koreanischen Blu-ray Disc Veröffentlichung von Kim Ji-Woons Orientalwestern The Good, The Bad and the Weird gelistet:

Sieht, wie für koreanische Veröffentlichungen üblich recht nett aus. Etwas Sorgen bereitet mir jedoch der Satz in der Artikelbeschreibung, daß die Blu-ray Disc die kürzere internationale Schnittfassung enthält, während auf der im März veröffentlichten Korea DVD beide Schnittfassungen enthalten waren.
Ich habe mal den Support von K2DVD zu der Sachlage angeschrieben, die scheinen in solchen Angelegenheiten recht kompetent zu sein.
Update: K2DVD hat bestätigt, daß nur die internationale Schnittfassung enthalten sein wird und die Blu-ray Disc auf den 24. September verschoben wurde.
