I'm hoping both Vengeance films are remasters. Mr. Vengeance is my favourite of the 3 movies and the current BD is turd.

Not gonna lie, I think this price is insanely good for the package you get. Maybe I don't collect enough to get it, but it seems pretty cheap for such a release. Very excited about it.

you won't be disappointed :)

any idea if the boxset title will be changed to the vengeance trilogy instead to reflect the disc content?
I'm sure I won't! :D

As for the title... looks like they're just including the other film names along the bottom. The artwork is designed entirely around Oldboy though, so I can understand their decision to keep it titled as such.

I actually preordered this just thinking it was an arrow video release of old boy, I just seen it comes with the rest of the trilogy as well, what a good price for all three! Ive not seen Mr vengeance yet but sympathy for lady vengeance is really a great film. This will look good next to my only one click (PA''s oldboy). I just hope zavvi don't send it out in a crappy cardboard envelope!

Actually had no idea this included Lady Sympathy and Sympathy For Mr. Vengeance when I ordered it. Bought only for the 4K restoration of Oldboy. This includes SO much for the value. Excited for when it arrives.

Update on this release was posted in previous pages
Plain Archive had rights to some extras that arrow previously listed would be included
So Arrow added the 2 films to make up for this and is why it's now a 4 disc set instead of 3

Looks like Arrow shipments ae arriving, just found an unboxing vid on YouTube, as follows (not mine). Boxset looks hefty, similar in thickness to the typical Arrow boxsets (Donnie Darko springs to mind), about 3 Amarays thick i'm guessing, anyway here it is:
