Director Shion Sono's latest movie is heading to Blu-ray early next year, and pre-orders are now live.
In an early announcement to retailers, Drafthouse Films is preparing 'Why Don't You Play in Hell?' for Blu-ray on January 27.
Ten years ago, the Kitagawa yakuza clan attacked the Muto yakuza clan at Muto's own home, only to have Muto's wife fight back. This unexpectedly left the Kitagawa clan in shambles, with their top hitman Ikegmai wounded and Muto's wife in prison. Despite the carnage, the most unfortunate fallout from this attack is when Muto's beloved daughter, Mitsuko, has her adorable toothpaste commercial taken off the air. Now, Ikegami seeks revenge, while Muto has only one desire: to have his wife return from prison to see Mitsuko star in her first movie. Enter an eager but untalented group of wannabe filmmakers whose dreams of making movies have come crashing down after ten years. Circumstances have brought them to this fateful moment where they ll be able to film the climactic battle between yakuzas in an epic, over-the-top ending for the ages.
Supplements have not been detailed yet, but the Blu-ray will feature 1080p video and a Japanese DTS-HD MA 5.1 soundtrack.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.93.
