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)!

Oh me, oh my, Arrow Video are bringing Shaw Brothers films to the US (& UK) on Blu-ray later this year! There were some US Blus prior to this, but the last one, Five Element Ninjas, came out in 2012!
Arrow’s release will be a 12-film, 8-Disc box set called Shawscope Vol. 1, and it will debut in December 2021. Yep, it’s just Volume 1! Besides that, I’m most excited that some films will have new scans from the negative (King Boxer, The Boxer from Shantung, Challenge of the Masters, The Five Venoms, Crippled Avengers and Dirty Ho), so maybe we’ll actually see some film grain 😮 ! Chinatown Kid will have a new scan of the longer, preferred cut! There will also be a book and tons of new extras… I can’t wait!

Hey there, Emuls-a-kongs, my latest post for the official Shaw Brothers site went up last week! I reviewed Ho Meng-Hua’s 1977 film The Mighty Peking Man… Check it out here and enjoy! Fans of my chronological Shaw Brothers series might be interested to know that The Mighty Peking Man was released between The Brave Archer and Judgement of an Assassin, so I almost watched it in order with the series.
And if you’re looking to watch The Mighty Peking Man, you can find it digitally on iTunes, Amazon Prime and other major digital stores. It’s also on Region B Blu-ray via 88 Films.
