Amazon is currently offering 'Battle Royale: The Complete Collection' for $19.99 (60% off suggested list price).
'Battle Royale: The Complete Collection' - In 2000, director Kinji Fukasaku unleashed 'Battle Royale,' his violently poetic epic about an innocent group of Junior High students forced by the government to hunt and kill their classmates for sport. It was nominated for 10 Japanese Academy Awards®, launched a global phenomenon, and banned from screens by frightened civic groups and distributors across America. Three years later, the equally disturbing sequel – featuring a new class, new rules, and a brutal terrorist plot by the first film’s young survivors – triggered its own tragic firestorm around the world. Now for the first time ever, you can see it all: Experience the entire Battle Royale saga on 4 discs that forever blasts open one of the most potent, shocking and savagely influential sagas in motion picture history.
The 4-Disc set includes three Blu-ray discs: 'Battle Royale: Director's Cut' with 1080p video and Japanese Dolby TrueHD 7.1 (English 5.1) soundtracks, 'Battle Royale: Theatrical Cut' with 1080p video and Dolby TrueHD 5.1 soundtracks (English and Japanese), and 'Battle Royale II: Revenge Director's Cut with 1080p video and a Japanese Dolby TrueHD 5.1 soundtrack with optional English subtitles.
