    Very cool. Cover could use some work though.

    That's potentially awesome news. I wonder if, since it's Shout!, that means we'll be getting original HK version with Cantonese soundtrack instead of a bastardized version like Miramax would release...

    Hopefully Crime Story is uncut and in Cantonese. I'm pretty sure the Dragon Dynasty DVD was. Speaking of, I hope this is a sign that Shout has picked up the other Fortune Star titles that DD released on DVD:
    Above the Law
    Last Hurrah for Chivalry
    Police Story
    Police Story 2
    The Royal Tramp 1 & 2
    Shanghai Express

    and any FS title that DD failed to release.

    I'd love to see Chan's cut of THE PROTECTOR. That version of the film has always passed me by.

    Same here. I've read that the final fight scene plays out better in his version.

    Ideally we'll get uncut original language versions of both movies with whatever alternate scenes there are available as well.

    It has longer fights (especially with Bill Wallace...they filmed an extra fight with Chan directing after GLickenhaus and crew went home!!)....The nudity has been outed and replaced...bad language has gone....they toned down anything too "non-chan" like......also, they added a subplot with Sally Yeh...

    They couldnt COMPLETELY Chan-ify the movie with his reshoots...but it is MORE Chan like than the original cut...and moves faster...more action-y

    I'd certainly love to finally watch the HK edit. I bought it from HK years ago but didn't check the dvd til many moons later and unfortunately it was a faulty disc - and at that time also way OOP.

    I made it a priority at the time to purchase the HK dvd....and was rewarded with a much more watchable, exciting picture...although I DID like Chan and Aiello teaming up in a grittier/ sleazier movie than he usually does (Chan...not Aiello!!).....
    Got rid of the disc a LONG time ago though when I had a big cleanout....

    As for CRIME STORY....it took me a little by surprise the first time I watched it because i didnt know it was more "drama" than his usual movies...But I enjoyed the change of pace a lot and was hoping maybe he woudl move in ht is direction with his movies rather than his "Disneyfied" direction once he came Stateside!!

    Shawn posted on his DVD News Flash facebook page that Shout told him that the Blu-ray will have both the US version and Chan's version of THE PROTECTOR
