Hong Kong Legends and Premier Asia in the New Year
Hong Kong Legends and Premier Asia have updated us with their plans for the New Years 1st quarter releases. Hong Kong Legends will release Chow Yun-fat's action comedy Tiger on the Beat for 26th January (a week later than we previously reported) and will follow this in February with a new double disc set, Iron Monkey: Platinum Edition. The stunning presentation of this seminal film now boasts a brand new commentary by star Donnie Yen (alongside HKL stalwart Bey Logan) and a second disc packed with all new interviews and features.
There are two releases for March. Skinny Tiger Fatty Dragon is Sammo Hung's totally over-the-top tribute to Bruce Lee - this has to be seen to be believed! Winners & Sinners is another explosive Jackie Chan comic action which delivers everything fans have come to expect.
Premier Asia on the other hand have delayed their release of Volcano High to 23rd February 2004, and have made the surprise announcement of Ichi The Killer - Anime for 26th January 2004.
To round things up we have a look at the cover artwork for what appears to be the last Hong Kong Legends release of 2003. The Manga In Motion box set will arrive on 29th December 2003 with a retail price of £24.99 and bundles together City Hunter, Dragon From Russia and The Story of Ricky.
