    “Only a Ninja…can destroy a Ninja” ***SURPRISE ANNOUNCMENT***

    1984’s NINJA III: THE DOMINATION from Cannon Pictures is one of the most bonkers and wtf films we’ve ever put on Blu-ray. For those who haven’t seen it, it’s a wild concoction of police shootouts, martial arts, golfing, The Exorcist, sex, hot tubs, Flashdance and video games. (Even V-8 makes a memorable appearance.) Although we knew the film had a vocal following when we released it 2014 we didn’t quite know what to expect or how big it would be. The sales numbers surprised us and it over-performed.

    What’s always bugged us though was that our release was a little on the “barebones” side, save for a commentary. Today, we correct that. We are re-releasing NINJA III again on June 12th as a “Collector’s Edition” Blu-ray with a serious upgrade in picture and extras. Some confirmed details as follows:

    • The newly-commissioned artwork pictured comes to us from artist Joel Robinson (Silent Night Deadly Night, Misery, Tales from the Hood). This art will be front-facing and the reverse side of the wrap will be the original theatrical poster art.

    • Release will come with a slipcover (guaranteed for three months after its original release date).

    • We are doing a new 4K scan of the film from original film elements.

    - Red Shirt Pictures is handling the bonus features on this and have come up with some kick-ass new stuff:
    - NEW 4K Scan From The Original Film Elements
    - NEW interview with Actress Lucinda Dickey
    - NEW interview with Actor Jordan Bennett
    - NEW interview with Producer and Stuntman Alan Amiel
    - NEW audio Interviews with Production Designer Elliot Ellentuck and Co-Composer Misha Segal featuring isolated tracks from the Original Score
    - Theatrical Trailer (in HD) with optional Trailers From Hell commentary with Screenwriter Josh Olson
    - Audio Commentary by Director Sam Firstenberg and Stunt Coordinator Steve Lambert (ported over from the prior DVD & Blu-ray release)

    Pre-order now directly from our website @ https://www.shoutfactory.com/…/ninja...ion-col… to get the product two weeks early from national street date plus you’ll receive a free exclusive collectible 18” x 24” rolled poster of the newly-designed key art (only while supplies last)


    zlol I will probably get this

    Ninja 3 The Domination was in heavy VHS rotation back in my jr. high days.

    I remember showing my Dad the infamous ninja vs every cop in LA scene to "proove" to him that ninjas were badass unstoppable assasins.

    He enjoyed the scene enough that he made me play it for his brother later that summer. They laughed merrily.

    I didn't get why they loved it so much until years later. ewwcry

    Well, you know where to send those. batsmile

    Streetprice vs. announcement?
    Maybe there will be non limited editions later, or the package will be worth it. And what's stopping them from a western release later.

    Listprice in Japan is usually what they sell for. Japan doesn't do discounted releases like we do in the west, in most instances.
    And there will likely be no western releases, because Manga Entertainment sucks, and if they did release it they would fuck it up like they have all the blu-rays somehow.

    They'd at least have to mess with the subs, obviously you just can't release the correct ones here.

    Stanley Kuteprik before even entertaining the idea, of spending a fortune on that incoming UHD Ghost In The Shell release, get confirmation that it is a true 4K representation - not just a 2K to 4K upscale.

    What resolution was it originally rendered in, in 1995? I'd be surprised if they rendered anime back then, in true 4K or higher.

    Bandai is saying it is a 4K remaster, but we shall see. The original film was printed to 35mm, so 4K is perfectly doable. The second one was finished digitally at 2K resolution at highest, so that will certainly be an upscale. But it will still have HDR and maybe look a bit better than the Blu-rays.

    The real fear is that Oshii may have overseen the 4K restoration and decided to tinker with things again ridwow

    Considering that the original film, was a mish mash of several elements and techniques, it wouldn't surprise me if the hand drawn elements were in high res, while the computer generated elements were rendered in relatively lower res.

    '4K remaster' can mean anything, I suspect, when it is not mentioned what version/master, it has been remastered from. :/
