Blu ray releases coming up on the Terracotta store
Over the last few years, labels like 88 Films, Eureka, Arrow and Third Window have been spoiling us with blu ray releases from the catalogue of Asian cinema history.
The releases continue to come, delighting film fans and blu ray collectors alike; here's a round-up of some of the best of them, all available to buy on the Terracotta store.
Dragons Forever 4k UHD Deluxe Collector boxset
Looking ahead, there's much excitement about the 88 Films Dragons Forever 4k UHD release.
Starring the trio of Jackie Chan, Yuen Biao and Sammo Hung, this classic Hong Kong action comedy gets the deluxe boxset treatment; if you're a film collector who has picked up 88 Films' previous Deluxe Collector editions releases like Armour of God or Erotic Ghost Story, then you know they pack that box full of extras.
Pre-order Dragons Forever here on the Terracotta store at a special pre-order price of £29.99.
The Seventh Curse Deluxe Collector boxset
So here's an overlooked gem. Chow Yun Fat, Maggie Cheung, Chin Siu Ho.
Just those names alone should make you take notice.
Throw in the fact that this is an exploitation horror film featuring lost tribes, death curses, and bloody thirsty baby like creatures, then you really have a must see film.
Part of a series of "Wisely" (sometimes "Wesley") sci-fi novels which were adapted by various directors in Hong Kong during the 80s and 90s.

Police Story 3: Supercop
Back on the Jackie Chan tip, hot on the heels of the Police Story 1 & 2 two-film set, comes Eureka's Police Story 3: Supercop release, as well as the Police Story trilogy boxset.
Featuring incredible stunts (like this death-defying helicopter ladder climb pictured), and co-starring Michelle Yeoh (EVERYTHING EVERYWHERE ALL AT ONCE) as a the mainland China Red Cop paired with Jackie's HK policeman character Ka Kui.
You can pre-order POLICE STORY 3: SUPERCOP here.
SUMMER TIME MACHINE BLUES
Third Window Films celebrates 15 years this year. With a vast catalogue of Korean action and Japanese thrillers and dramas, perhaps they are most well known for their ground-breaking Japanese quirky comedies (like ONE CUT OF THE DEAD and BEYOND THE INFINITE TWO MINUTES).
Summer Time Machine Blues is another great comedy from Third Window Films with a loveable cast and improbable premise.
Members of the university Sci-Fi Club hang about during the summer in the clubhouse with the air-con blasting. When the air-con remote is accidentally broken, the friends are forced to face the full heat of summer. The next day they discover a working time machine. Now they can go back to before the remote broke and cool down again. If only time travel was that simple...
Hilarious and a big hit in Japan.
You can pre-order Summer Time Machine Blues here.
