Consisting of outtakes and deleted material (previously only available to forum members) out of Podcast On Fire 29, 30 and 31 (available in the Cast From The Past archive) from 2008 with Stoo, Kenny B, Mike Banner, Phil G and Jeff Wildman. This collection feature tangents and outtakes concerning last movies watched, movies to watch in the future (that idea gives birth to a funny name), bad cover art and sports hooligans.
DVDActive Reports: Entertainment in Video has announced the DVD and Blu-ray release of Red Cliff for the 5th of October. John Woo originally made the film in two parts, with each part being approximately two-and-a-half hours in length. It was this version that was released theatrically in China. However, the two parts were combined and edited to make a single shorter movie for international markets and it was this version that was released theatrically in the UK. EiV are bringing both versions to UK consumers for the first time.
The International version will retail for £19.99 (DVD) and £24.99 (Blu-ray), with the Special Edition (more horrible cover art here.) weighing in at £22.99 (DVD) and £29.99 (Blu-ray). Bonus material consists of an interview with John Woo and a behind-the-scenes featurette. All available artwork can be found below.
[Ed. Note; I really need to post more info about Asian Cinema being released in the UK. So to add my opinion to this article and I think the font used in the text is bloody horrible. The font looks good for the latest straight to DVD Sci-Fi flick, but a Chinese Period Epic?]
As the Stoo is away (enjoying social life instead…Guitar Hero) for the opening of the show there will be no Storm Warriors gushing for our demoted host as Ken and Mike open an echoey (sorry about that) first 12 minutes with trailer discussion of hot movies coming out of Asia. Eventually some of them will reach the UK so the trio share their thoughts and covers the current cinema climate for Asian cinema in the UK. There’s also a feelgood story within in the plugging so join us the entire way through why don’t ya?
John Woo’s epic Red Cliff is hitting UK Cinemas June 12th certificate rating 15. So search your local cinema websites for listings. Summit Entertainment is the company releasing the flick, details are still foggy whether this is the first movie or the first and the second movie sliced together. For those who aren’t familiar with Red Cliff click to read the full article where I’ve attached a YouTube video of trailer. Also you can watch the TV Advert which seems to be getting played heavily shown on everything I watch nowadays, right here at Telly Ads.com
