'Shaolin' Blu-ray Gets Release Date

Posted Fri Sep 23, 2011 at 06:00 AM PDT by

The philosophical and action-packed Hong Kong blockbuster will kung-fu kick Blu-ray in October.

In an early announcement to retailers, Well Go USA is prepping 'Shaolin (Blu-ray/DVD Combo)' and 'Shaolin: Collector's Edition' for a Blu-ray release on September 27.

Andy Lau ('House of Flying Daggers,' 'Future X-Cops'), Nicolas Tse ('The Stool Pigeon,' 'Storm Warriors'), and international superstar Jackie Chan ('The Karate Kid,' 'Rush Hour' trilogy) star in the martial arts remake of Jet Li’s 'Shaolin Temple' (1982). Acclaimed director Benny Chan ('City Under Siege') tells an epic tale of sadistic warlords squaring off against noble monks in “a tale of monstrous evil, spiritual transformation and ultimate self-sacrifice” (Mark Jenkins, NPR).

Specs have yet to be revealed, but supplements on the Collector's Edition will include Behind the scenes interviews (including interview with Shaolin Abbot), a making of featurette, and deleted scenes.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray/DVD combo is $29.98 and the Collector's Edition is $32.98.
