  • April release (US ONLY):

    Comment


    • From 88 Films...

      Coming soon with a brand new 2K restoration exclusive to this release, Battle Creek Brawl aka The Big Brawl (1980).

      Extras and Specs TBC but it will feature vastly improved audio as well as PQ

      Jackie Chan arrived on American soil with hopes of becoming a superstar in the West and his first ever Hollywood project as a leading man certainly provided him with a notable director in Robert Clouse, the legendary director who took Bruce Lee to the next level with ENTER THE DRAGON (1973). With BATTLE CREEK BRAWL (1980), Director Clouse achieved it, this is prime Jackie - as our man successfully takes on the mafia and romances the gorgeous Playboy cover girl Kristine DeBell. A classic bout of chopsocky on American soil, BATTLE CREEK BRAWL is ready to punch its way into your collection in this new 2K restoration!

      • According to some posts at the Blu-ray.com forum, the subtitles on Shout Factory's Jackie Chan set are full of typos, so many that it becomes distracting. I think someone also mentioned the subs on the Sonny Chiba set are also lacking. You'd think, after the Brotherhood of the Wolf subtitle debacle, that Shout would actually have someone QC the subtitles.

          Anyone who would think that is unfamiliar with how Shout does business.

          • True.

            Speaking of Shout, their Jackie Chan Volume 2 (1983-1993) set is due in April, and based on the cover art likely will include:

            Armour of God
            Crime Story
            Twinkle Twinkle Lucky Stars (or Wheels on Meals, but the image looks like a direct lift from a TTLS poster)
            The Protector
            Operation Condor

            Sucks if it is Twinkle Twinkle Lucky Stars as it means no dedicated Lucky Stars set in the US.

              Pretty strong line up, but it is SF. Fingers crossed it includes all the multiple cuts of some of those films.

                    Has the SRP been announced?
                    After the 88 Films Supercop I was resigned to not collect any more Jackie titles due to lack of space & funds. May have to reconsider and let the likely subtitles/tech issues slide.

                      Wait, they've included the 1st and 3rd Lucky Stars film but not the 2nd one? That's odd. Eureka released the whole trilogy on BD.

                          Criterion/Janus has the rights to My Lucky Stars. They also have Spiritual Kung Fu, Half a Loaf of Kung Fu, Fearless Hyena 1 & 2, and The Young Master. I assume these were a package deal with Police Story 1 & 2.

                          • Man, I need to get a Blu-ray player. Some of those films in Vol. 2 are great! I love Operation Condor!
