Big Trouble in Little China Blu-ray

Posted November 25, 2013 05:03 PM by Webmaster

Arrow VideoBritish distributors Arrow Video have officially announced and detailed their upcoming Blu-ray release of director John Carpenter's Big Trouble in Little China (1986), starring Kurt Russell, Kim Cattrall, Dennis Dun, James Hong, and Victor Wong. The release will be available for purchase on December 16th.

Following Escape from New York and The Thing, John Carpenter and Kurt Russell re-unite for this mystical, action, adventure, comedy, kung-fu, monster, ghost story.

Russell plays Jack Burton, a reasonable guy who is about to experience some unreasonable things in San Francisco's Chinatown. As his friend's fiancée is kidnapped Jack becomes embroiled in a centuries-old battle between good and evil. At the root of it all is Lo Pan, a 2000-year-old magician who rules an empire of evil spirits. Jack goes to the rescue dodging demons, goblins and the unstoppable Three Storms as he battles through Lo Pan's dark domain.

One of Carpenters most enjoyable and best loved films, Big Trouble in Little China brilliantly juggles delirious set-pieces, comedy and kung-fu action with a razor sharp script of corking one-liners, as Jack would say "It's all in the reflexes".

The super-deluxe package, which is available both as a standard Blu-ray and as a limited edition Blu-ray SteelBook, is full of special features and bonus materials.

Special Features: High Definition Blu-ray (1080p) presentation of the film from a digital transfer prepared by Twentieth Century Fox

  • Vintage Making-of featurette featuring cast and crew
  • Extended Ending

You remember what ol' Jack Burton always says at a time like that, "Have ya paid your dues, Jack?", "yes sir, the check is in the mail."

I hope to hell Arrow get the rights to all JC's films. This is ridiculous. Great special features list.

Have had the gorgeous steelbook in my cart for some time now, but on the fence on whether the triple-dip will be worth it at $29 cdn (w/shipping) ... still, there's all those new interviews and the booklet ... what would Jack do? ... maybe I haven't 'paid my dues' yet *FYI -- for those who may not know, this is a Region 'B' release.

Maybe those of us in the U.S. will get lucky and there will be a special trick to making this sucker play as an All-Region release ... ?? Yes, no, maybe ?? LoL

Well, they can't have Christine for now. It's locked up in the ridiculousness that is Twilight Time. I would though like to see a proper release for Escape from New York, and a better release for They Live and The Thing.

I probably won't bite on this release. I'm pretty happy with what I already have (for now).

Just get a region free player, I did two months ago and it was a great decision. I'm loving all these Arrow and Masters of Cinema releases!

I lost track: How did things pan out on their Lifeforce release? I was somewhat let down by Shout's offering.

I'd imagine that "the ridiculousness that is Twilight Time" would only apply to a US release, so Arrow should be able to release their films. They released The Fury just seven months after Twilight Time.

As for Lifeforce, there's a review on here: I haven't seen it yet, but most opinion says it's better than Shout's release.

Their release of lifeforce is the better edition. I have both and you get all the scream extras minus the old behind the scenes footage plus a third commentary a feature length documentary and a booklet with essays and interviews. Compression is better especially since each version gets its own disc. Scream had both on one disc and the theatrical was in 1080i and only had Dolby sound. Arrow presents it in 1080p and with lossless sound.
