another version of these films, but if it's anything like Eureka's treatment of Drunken Master, this is a must-buy. the restoration job on that was exemplary. :notworthy:

pre-orders already up and available, Zavvi currently £5 cheaper. :thumbs:

fyi @cooey @dan8885 @Drunkenmaster @Lollard2002 @Noodles
Yeah my initial thought was to pass as you say "another version of these films" & still no UK release of Police Story 3 (supercop)

but then saw details, 2 Versions of Police story (Uncut & TV version) & the 2 hour version of Police Story 2 (don't Know if there is the standard version as well)

Lets to say ordered!!!!!!

Fingers crossed for more blu ray releases of old HKL titles - Wheels on Meals, Prodigal Son Please, Please!!!!!!!!

From IRONGOD2112 on BR.com
"Awesome news today!!


Eureka will be including the Japanese
cut of Police Story 1 !!

They are also using the superior laserdisc audio & are using Ken81's English subtitles on it as well.

They also were given 2 standard def versions of Police Story 2 theatrical cut by Fortune Star. One is the Theatrical Cantonese version. The other they weren't sure what is was.
It ran 90 min and was English dubbed and in PAL

They sent me 2 clips to identify it. So I watch the clips and low and behold it's the classic English 1988 dub!! So I assume this is the same cut as the UK VHS from 1988"

Fingers crossed its the real deal (jusst a sample of the interesting info)

Extra cut of both Police Story 1 & 2, inclusion of better subtitles, inclusion of classic English dubs and potentially more extras!
