Posted Fri Dec 16, 2011 at 06:00 AM PST by

Acclaimed filmmaker Takeshi Kitano's hit gangster flick will have a Blu-ray bow next month!

In an early announcement to retailers, Magnolia says 'Outrage: Way of the Yakuza' is coming to Blu-ray on January 31.

Called the “Scorsese of Japan when it comes to well crafted organized crime flicks” (Movie Buzzers), Kitano wrote, directed and stars in the action-packed gangster film, nominated for the Palme d’Or at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival.

From the producers of 'Brother' and 'Fireworks,' “the truly iconic international crime film” (Twitch), 'Outrage: Way of the Yakuza' begins when a boss of the notorious Japanese crime syndicate, the “yakuza,” issues an order to his associates to keep a rival gang in line. The task falls on Otomo (Kitano), who soon instigates a play for power that creates an all-out gang war, illustrating the brutal fate that befalls anyone who dares to violate the structured ways of the yakuza.

Specs have yet to be detailed, but supplements will include: Cast Interview: Making Outrage: Way of the Yakuza, Outrage: Way of the Yakuza ß Inside Out: Behind The Scenes Documentary, Cast Panel Interview, Premiere Q&A, Cannes “Red Carpet” Premiere With Takeshi Kitano, and U.S. Trailer & International Trailer.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.98.
