    Arrow Releasing Foxy Brown On Blu-ray 6/24/2013!

    Arrow Video: Foxy Brown
    BluRay - £15.99
    Cat No: FCD781

    Released: 24 Jun 2013

    Starring: Pam Grier, Antonio Fargas, Sid Haig
    Directed by: Jack Hill
    Rating: TBC
    Duration: TBC

    Overview: When Foxy Brown’s undercover-agent boyfriend is gunned down on the orders of evil drug kingpins, she stops at nothing to exact a thrillingly brutal revenge. This is one of the all-time great blaxploitation films, pulling out all the stops at a time long before anyone thought of inventing political correctness.

    Pam Grier was given the role of a lifetime as the street-smart yet intensely sexy Foxy, modelling a stupendously varied range of Seventies threads while righteously kicking villainous white butt at every opportunity. She’s also given sterling support from Antonio ‘Huggy Bear’ Fargas as her no-good younger brother and a memorably funky soundtrack.

    It’s clear that Quentin Tarantino is a huge fan: he cast Grier in the title role of his direct homage Jackie Brown, while the one-woman revenge scenario that fuelled the Kill Bill films didn’t just come from the Far East.

    Special Features:
    - Restored High Definition Blu-ray presentation (1080p)
    - Optional English SDH subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing
    - Audio commentary with director Jack Hill

    - A Not So Minor Influence – An Interview with Bob Minor, the first African-American member of the Stuntman’s Association, and co-star of Foxy Brown
    - Back to Black – Legendary actors Fred “The Hammer” Williamson (Black Caesar) and Austin Stoker (Sheba Baby, Assault on Precinct 13), alongside Rosanne Katon (Ebony, Ivory, and Jade) and film scholar Howard S. Berger speak about the enduring popularity of the Blaxploitation film
    - Photo gallery of behind-the-scenes and publicity images
    - Original Theatrical Trailer
    - Trailer Reel – Trailers for all the major works by Jack Hill including Foxy Brown, Coffy and Switchblade Sisters
    - Reversible sleeve featuring original and newly commissioned artwork by The Red Dress

    I've checked around on the Olive Films releases for Coffy and Foxy Brown and I can't find if they'll have any of the extras from the Arrow Films ported over or if they're bare bones. Has anyone found out for sure one way or the other?

    Their press release didn't mention any extras and their releases are typically barebones so that's the route I'm expecting them to take here unfortunately.
