    James Clavell's Captivating Classic Is Now Available As A Collectible Set From CBS Home Entertainment And Paramount Home Entertainment.

    HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (December 22, 2010) - Celebrating its 30th anniversary, the action-packed war drama, SHOGUN, returns as a one-of-a-kind collector's edition DVD now available from CBS Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Entertainment.

    From best-selling author James Clavell, SHOGUN: 30th ANNIVERSARY EDITION stars Richard Chamberlain and Yí´ko Shimada in their Golden Globe® award-winning roles as John Blackthorne and Lady Toda Buntaro - Mariko.

After being rescued, he becomes an eyewitness to a deadly struggle involving Toranaga (Toshirí´ Mifune; Rashomon), a feuding Japanese warlord intent on becoming the supreme military dictator or 'Shogun.' The warlord forms a tenuous alliance with Blackthorne, who is drawn into the turmoil and finds himself vying to become the first ever 'Gai-Jin' (foreigner) to be made a Samurai warrior.
