Battle Royale: The Complete Collection Blu-ray

Posted January 10, 2012 09:07 AM by Josh Katz

Anchor Bay EntertainmentThis March, Anchor Bay Home Entertainment will bring Battle Royale: The Complete Collection to Blu-ray. Inspired by Koushun Takami's controversial bestseller, the two films comprising the collection - Battle Royale and Battle Royale II: Requiem - detail a dystopian future where teenagers are forced to fight to the death in a yearly competition.

Directed by Kinju Fukasaku (Tora! Tora! Tora!), the first Battle Royale remains one of the most controversial thrillers ever made; due to its violent content involving children, Battle Royale only just received its its first official North American theatrical run on December 24th, 2011. International star Takeshi Kitano (Outrage) headlines the film as the teacher who introduces his class - 3-B - to the rules and regulations of the BR Act.

For the sequel, Fukasaku's son Kenta picked up the directing reins after his father died of prostate cancer. Battle Royale II: Requiem expands the scope of its predecessor, as it follows both the bloody exploits of a new class turned against itself as well as the terrorist plot orchestrated by the first film's survivors to bring down the BR Act forever.

This four-disc collection offers the Battle Royale theatrical and director's cuts and the Battle Royale II: Requiem director's cut, with Battle Royale in a 1.78:1 aspect ratio and Battle Royale II: Requiem in a 1.85:1 aspect ratio. All versions have accompanying 7.1 Japanese (w/English subtitles) Dolby TrueHD and 5.1 English Dubbed Dolby TrueHD audio tracks. The set also contains the following bonus supplements:
  • The Making Of Battle Royale featurette
  • Battle Royale press conference
  • Instructional video: "Birthday Version"
  • Audition/rehearsal footage
  • Special effects comparison featurette
  • Footage from the 2000 Tokyo International Film Festival
  • Battle Royale documentary
  • "Basketball Scene" rehearsals
  • Behind-the-scenes featurette
  • Filming on-set footage
  • Original theatrical trailer
  • Special Edition TV spot
  • TV spot: "Tarantino Version"
In addition, Anchor Bay will also release a bare-bones, single-disc edition of the Battle Royale director's cut. This copy shares the same technical specifications as found in the "Complete Collection" but has no special features.

Battle Royale: The Complete Collection and the single-disc Battle Royale Blu-ray street on March 20th.

Also have the Arrow version. I'll have to compare the bonus features between the two, but since I never liked Requiem, I can't see much reason to buy this second set.

Do you think these are timed to tie in with 'The Hunger Games'?

Although I've no idea what they're singing about, I love the song at the end of BR.

I've got the Arrow LE blu and the LE tin of BRII with both cuts of the film, so not worth the double dipping really.

The more Blu-rays the better, but...

Battle Royale has received a lot of attention since its release so I was anxious to see it. In short, it was a disappointing experience. The violence in this movie is the very definition of gratuitous. The improbable, absurd plot seems to be nothing more than a flimsy excuse to show various ways to murder people. If that's your thing or you have a fetish for things Asian then you won't want to miss this movie.

I never got the fuss about this film, it was ok but I don't need to see it again. The sequel was diabolical!

@lnh_boy Or maybe to upstage The Hunger Games. Isn't the main criticism about THG that it's just a rip-off of Battle Royale.

I've got the Arrow discs, but if these are prices well and the transfers are leaps and bounds better (which i can't really see being the case) i may double dip.
Any work if this is a new transfer or the same one as the Arrow discs?

I thought the subtitle for the directors cut of br2 was revenge?. Requiem was for the theatrical version

Is it just me or does the set look like a digibook? Looks like a spine one the left side when enlarged.

I concure w/ bgmat58. By the look of it, it appears to be a digibook. Like some of you, I too have the Arrow LE, and will hold off till I hear about whether or not BR has a new transfer or not. BR II wasn't very good imo, so its inclusion won't be enough to get me to double dip.
