Blu-ray Deal Of The Day: Battle Royale – The Complete Collection
by Travis Leamons on March 20, 2012

With the impending release of The Hunger Games in theaters it makes sense that a retailer would pounce on the opportunity to sell its precursor, Battle Royale for a bargain price. Considered to be one of the most controversial films of all time, Royale was released in Japan in 2000, and is adapted from the best-selling novel from Koushun Takami. Now available in America, Kinji Fukasaku’s film is a violently poetic epic about an innocent group of Junior High students forced by the government to hunt and kill their classmates for sport. It was nominated for 10 Japanese Academy Awards, launched a global phenomenon, and banned from screens by frightened civic groups and distributors across America.

Anchor Bay Home Entertainment recently released Battle Royale and its sequel on DVD and Blu-ray. The high-def release includes more than three hours of bonus material including making-ofs, rehearsals, TV spots and trailers, multiple featurettes, a BR press conference and a documentary.

Over at Family Video, the online retailer is offering the Blu-ray collection of Battle Royale for just $17.99. To qualify for Free Shipping include the code SHAMROCK at checkout.
