French Hong Kong Video Label

Director Christophe Gans (Brotherhood of the Wolf) has been sited as saying how impressed he was with the Hong Kong Legends DVD Label we have here in the UK and how he had plans to create the French equivalent. Well, here it is. The HKVideo label has four titles due for release on the 17th October 2001; all will contain remastered prints transferred at the films original aspect ratios with anamorphic enhancement. Both the original language track and a French dub will be provided, and unfortunately only French subtitles will make it onto the final product. Extras are good but not to the extent we are treated to here in the UK.

Hong Kong Legends currently own the rights to Zu: Warriors of the Magic Mountain, a Platinum Edition of Snake in the Eagles Shadow is rumoured to be on its way so that only leaves Black Mask and The Killer as being the ones to watch. Although The Killer is heavily rumoured to be receiving a Special Edition release here in the UK at some point this forthcoming French release is still the best option for the foreseeable future. There are DVD Subtitle programs available so hopefully an English subtitle track will be made available by fans at some point. For further discussion on this and the other titles please use the comments option here or on this thread over at the DVDForums.
