    I just wanted to give a heads up to anyone interested that Battle Royale will be released this coming Monday in the UK. It will be a three disc set containing both the theatrical and extended versions of the film plus a disc of bonus features. Looks like it will be a very nice package and it is for all regions.


    Here is a link to Amazon: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Battle-Royale-Disc-Limited-Blu-ray/dp/B003ZIZ2HK/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1292009624&sr=8-2

    My copy shipped on Saturday. Right now it says to expect it in early January but we'll see if it gets here (California) a little faster than that.

    Mine also says it will be delivered in January but I am keeping my fingers crossed that it arrives sooner than that.

    Good film. Would have been nice to get both films in the box set, but it'll do. :)

    Steve,


    Are you referring to the sequel?

    No. I wasn't a fan of it so I am not upset by it not being included.


    I am glad though that the longer cut is included. I prefer the theatrical version but I do look forward to seeing the longer cut again. I've only seen it once and it's been a few years since I did.

    My set was delivered this morning. First impressions are great; the packaging is pretty spectacular. The picture quality is better than I had expected, especially after seeing the fairly disappointing caps at DVDBeaver. The brightness and contrast levels are fine. As a side note, I also received Arrow's Bay of Blood, which is very impressive as well. Well done Arrow- looking forward to Deep Red, as well as The Beyond and Tenebre next year!
