    The Bruce Lee On Blu-ray Thread

    Not much in the way of details yet but Boulevard Movies has this up for pre-order:

    Shout Factory presents a Bruce Lee double feature:

    The Way Of The Dragon (1972)
    The Game Of The Death (1978)

    http://www.boulevardmovies.com/Way-O...D-p-22385.html

    Release date 3/5/13.

    Haven't found out if there are Blu's coming yet or not. I'd imagine there are and that if Shout! got these titles they'll have a few others.

    OK, a bit more on this by way of City On Fire.

    The Big Boss/First Of Fury 3/5/13

    Way Of The Dragon/Game Of Death 3/5/13

    These are DVD only, the Blu-ray boxed set will supposedly contain all four films and be coming in July of 2013 to honor the 40th anniversary of his death.

    I think that those covers suck. But I don't really care about cover art, anyway.

    I'm not as big a fan of Bruce Lee as many, and I'm certainly not opposed to bare-bones double feature discs for certain kinds of things, but still I would really have thought that a performer of his stature/fame would have gotten better treatment on DVD. I mean, I'm sure that Shout Factory will do a fine job on these -- but given how relatively small his filmography is, I'm really surprised we're not getting stand alone "Special Edition" releases of each of the film, or a big fancy box set.

    See above. The rumor is that there's a four disc Blu-ray boxed set in the works to commemorate the 40th anniversary of his death.

    These DVDs could just be budget releases for those who won't want to invest in what will inevitibly be a more expensive package with the Blu set.

    Ok, the top images are from the Fortune Star boxed set that came out in HK a few years back, the bottom images are from the new Shout! disc.

    Does anyone know if these films were ever cut? Specifically.....gory bits? The fight scene when Bruce discovers the bodies in the ice in The Big Boss seems to be missing some footage.
