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!
