    If you check out the list of films being screened at this year's Cannes festival, a portion of the films are restored prints (including the first of the long-promised Shaw Bros titles!). Among the restorations is Kagemusha, listed as the director's cut, from the original negative. Maybe this means a DVD is forthcoming in the US as well as the UK, and that we might even get a limited release of this in theaters as well...

    I have this on laserdisc. I would love to see a new anamorphic print for DVD!

    A DVD is coming in the UK in June, but no details yet on if it is based on this cut/restoration or not.
