From Warner Brothers:



“Batman Returns� [USA / GB 1992, Tim Burton] 2-DVD-Set - June 2005



“Batman� [USA 1989, Tim Burton] 2-DVD-Set - June 2005





Reportedly, director Tim Burton re-recorded his audio commentary tracks for Batman and Batman Returns with a “special guest.” Extras are expected to include trailers, TV spots, vintage footage, new featurettes and a feature-length documentary (for Batman). Joel Schumacher has also apparently recorded new commentary for Batman Forever and Batman & Robin, and is reportedly working on a new, 150-minute extended cut of Forever to be included on the DVD via seamless branching. At least the original Batman is expected to street in May (just prior to the release of Batman Begins in theaters) and a box set of all four films is planned for October or November.

Aimeigo R1

January 26th, 2006: Announcing 6 new licenses!



Shogun Assassin: The most famous samurai film in North America and probably most bootlegged one! You’ve begged us to do it for years, and we’re giving it the full AnimEigo treatment - we’re restoring it using our brilliant transfers of the original component films (Lone Wolf & Cub 1&2). We’re literally going to replace every frame in Shogun Assassin with the exact same frames from the original films!



That sound you hear is the sound of everyone who bought the crappy bootleg editions weeping, with an overlay of gnashing of teeth from the scummy bootleggers!



Japan’s Longest Day aka The Emperor and The General (1967): The best-known Japanese World War II film, it is set on August 15th, 1945, the day the Emperor announced Japan’s surrender. Directed by Kihachi Okamoto (Samurai Assassin) and starring the legendary Toshiro Mifune, who plays the General, and does something you never see Mifune doing – he commits seppuku!



A New Love in Tokyo (1994): A unique, award-winning art film that’s funny, edgy, and sexy, it’s the story of a morally-flexible dominatrix, who is at the same time a serious amateur actress trying to build real relationships with both her acting and sex-business acquaintances. When you need a big audience for your new play, it’s always good to have a Yakuza boss as your whipping boy!



The Trail of Blood (1972), The Fearless Avenger (1973), and Slaughter in the Snow (1973): 3 action-packed, excessively bloody samurai Yakuza films (in other words, the kind you tell us you like the best!), the famed “Mikogami” series is the story of a man who tried to leave the Yakuza world, only to have his family slaughtered – which means there’s 3 films worth of villains to hunt down and dispatch!



More announcements in the near future!

You should also get the original Lone Wolf and Cub films. Shogun Assassin is cool, but Lone Wolf is the ultimate epic…



Animeigo’s R1 discs are pretty good (and 1000 times better than the terrible UK releases of Shogun Assassin and LW&C). You can get the same discs much cheaper from thailand, but I’m not sure how “official” those releases are.
