    Paul,
    I haven't heard of a release date for R1 but Battle Royale is out on UK R2 on the 21st of January. It is uncut (ain't it great how the BBFC have gotten over the past couple of years[​IMG] ) and anamorphic. Extras wise you get some bios, still gallery and trailer. Its a Tartan release so I'm guessing your local Virgin Megastore will get plenty in. If your ordering online though I recommend Play247 . They've got £5 off it at the minute.

    Hey there. [​IMG]
    I am looking for the making-of DVD that is available in JAPAN only - does anyone know where to get this?
    Thank you very much,
    Sebastian.

    I bought the Making of DVD (Battle Royale Gaiden is the Japanese title) from CD Japan. It ran about $23 or so. Catalog number is HODV-05003. I had to request it as a special order as they don't have it in their online catalog, but they had no problem getting it.

    I had no idea that Battle Royale Gaiden (Side story) even existed. Too bad my R2 budget is already on "insane" with X-Japan concerts

    Lawrence,
    According to the BBFC website it was passed uncut for both Cinema and Video releases. I was pretty to surprised to see that they had passed it too.

    Unfortunately, I had to regionalize my PC DVD player to see it. Worth the effort, but I wasn't able to hear the digital output (my comp is way below HTPC specs). I would love to see a region 1 release (anamorphic or not). This was certainly a provocative and impressive movie. I wonder how it would play in Kansas? [​IMG]
