    I searched for a thread about Battle Royale, but didn't come up with anything. So forgive me if this has been brought up before.
    After seeing this twice at the Seattle Film Festival last year, I completely fell in love with this amazing film. I haven't read anything about it getting any sort of release in the States. It's probably far to controversial to get any sort of wide release, but this is a film that deserves to be seen. I don't know if anybody has the rights to this film yet.
    This is definately a cult film in the making, it screams for that wonderful Anchor Bay treatment.
    For those interested in film info go here.

    Another distributor has already gained the rights to this film for U.S. distribution.

    I haven't confirmed it yet, but wurd on the street is that TokyoPop has it. They have a lot of money in back of them and have been buying up a LOT of live action stuff as of late for their new line.
