Shogun Assassin in August

Source: Blu-ray.com

It is nice to see smaller studios starting to release their own Blu-rays, especially when the films are so awesome.

Shogun Assassin: 30th Anniversary Collector's Edition is actually two Japanese films condensed and re-released into one samurai slash-fest. The classic American version of the film is actually the first two segments of the popular Lone Wolf and Cub series and is a must own for any fan of Japanese cinema.

The independent studio AnimEigo is starting off their Blu-ray catalog the right way with an August 24th release of the classic tale of a ronin turned Japan's deadliest assassin who is known only by his ominous name: Lone Wolf.

Extras Include:

  • Audio Commentary with producer David Weisman, illustrator Jim Evans and actor Gibran Evans (the English voice of Daigoro)
  • An interview with Samuel L. Jackson, about his love for Shogun Assassin and samurai in general, shot specifically for this release.

For those of you playing at home, Shogun Assassin is the movie that is being watched toward the end of Kill Bill: Volume II.
