Medusa/HKL/Premier Asia schedule shuffle
Medusa/Hong Kong Legends have confirmed delays for titles originally due for release earlier this week with both Skinny Tiger Fatty Dragon and Fist of the North Star now scheduled to appear on 24th May 2004. All other details remain the same and can be found by following the links.
Whether its due to a knock on effect from those delays or that HKL simply need more time both Moon Warriors and Bullet in the Head have also been pushed back and are now expected on 21st June 2004. The good news is HKL have updated their website with initial specs for both, confirming interviews with distinguished cinematographer Arthur Wong, writer Alex Law and producer Mabel Cheung, a video tribute to Anita Mui, trailers and feature-length audio commentary on the swordplay fantasy Moon Warriors while John Woo's Bullet In The Head is now confirmed to be receiving the two-disc platinum edition treatment with over 5 hours of exclusive extras including interviews with cast and crew, featurettes, trailers, photo gallery and a feature-length audio commentary planned.
As a result of the new June 2004 titles Dragons Forever has been pushed off the schedule, though should reappear in July. Going back a month or two Winners and Sinners fares better and sees a minor one week delay meaning it will now arrive on 26th April 2004. The the only title not to be affected by these changes and still due to arrive on its original date of 5th April 2004 is Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
Premier Asia have also been tweaking their schedule with My Wife Is A Gangster, previously penned in for 21st June 2004 nowhere to be seen, while The Grudge (Ju-On) has been scheduled for a Theatrical release on 2nd July.
