Goodness gracious, 88 Films are coming to the US and they’re bringing Shaw Brothers Blu-rays with them! Between the Arrow announcement and this, Shaw fans in the US should be very excited!
88’s first release will be for Jimmy Wang Yu’s landmark kung fu film, The Chinese Boxer! It’s set to release November 9, 2021, and it will have commentary, interviews and more to fill out the package. I have all of 88’s UK Shaw Brothers releases, so I can vouch for their fantastic output firsthand! I can’t wait to check out their first US Shaw Brothers release. But that’s not all… the announcement also included images of future releases (see below)!
