Kitano's Zatoichi in March

Bandai Visual have announced the Japanese Region 2 DVD release of Takeshi Kitano's Zatoichi for 11th March 2004 with a retail price of 3990 Yen. Kitano's 2003 reinterpretation of this classic Japanese series sees him star as the infamous blind swordsman, Zatoichi, and has resulted in a film that has garnered many awards and critical acclaim as it toured festivals around the world.

The 'First Pressing' of this release will feature (as far as I can tell) limited edition special packaging and a bonus disc totalling 120-minutes of special features including behind-the-scenes material, interviews and more (a logbook is also mentioned).

The specs for the movie disc are:

  • Anamorphic Widescreen transfer
  • Japanese DD5.1 Surround
  • English and Japanese Subtitles
  • "Hot News Report"
  • Theatrical Trailer
  • TV Spot
