NEW UK TITLE: The Street Fighter Trilogy (Blu-ray) - Blu-ray Pre-order available from Arrow Films direct - 22:00

Release date: April 17

"Sonny Chiba stars as Takuma "Terry" Tsurugi, the animalistic antihero driven by sex, money and brawling in the infamous series that first introduced the name of the martial arts legend to a global audience.

The first film to receive an X rating in the U.S. purely on account of its violence, The Street Fighter sees Tsurugi embroiled in a game of double and triple crosses involving both local and foreign mafia gangs when he is hired to kidnap Sarai (Yutaka Nakajima, The Executioner 1 & 2), the beautiful heiress daughter of a recently deceased oil tycoon. In Return of the Street Fighter, Tsurugi uncovers an extortion racket behind the construction of a new karate dojo and a shadowy cabal whose reach stretches across the whole of Asia. In The Street Fighter's Last Revenge, Chiba is joined by Toei star Reiko Ike (Girl Boss Guerrilla, Sex and Fury) as Tsurugi goes hand-to-hand against an ambitious public prosecutor (Koji Wada) with his own fists of fury over evidence of a corporate coverup involving a chemical spillage.

The Street Fighter films made Chiba a star, so beloved by Quentin Tarantino he had the young lovers of True Romance meet-cute at a Sonny Chiba triple feature and would later cast Chiba himself in Kill Bill. Making its UK Blu-ray debut, Arrow Video is proud to present The Street Fighter Trilogy in all its eye-popping, skull-crushing, throat-ripping glory!

NEW US/CAN TITLE: The Assassination Bureau (1969) - Blu-ray Pre-order available from Arrow Films US - $28:00

Release date: April 25

"Anarchy reigns as Diana Rigg and Oliver Reed go head to head in a blackly comic caper that plays out against the colourful backdrop of Europe on the cusp of World War One.

London, 1908. When feisty journalist and women’s rights campaigner Sonia Winter (Diana Rigg) uncovers the headquarters of the Assassination Bureau Limited, a clandestine enterprise that has existed for decades by bumping off the rich and powerful - but only if there's a good moral reason for it - she sets on a path of putting an end to its activities. Bankrolled by her press baron boss, Lord Bostwick (Telly Savalas), she commissions the organisation to undertake the assassination of its very own chairman, Ivan Dragomiloff (Oliver Reed). Being the gentleman that he is, Dragomiloff responds to the assignment with glee, challenging his fellow board members to complete the contract. Only they'll have to catch him first...

The Assassination Bureau is based on an unfinished novel by Jack London published posthumously in 1963. Shot in glorious Technicolor by Geoffrey Unsworth (2001: A Space Odyssey), this penultimate work from the esteemed directing-producing team of Basil Dearden and Michael Relph (Sapphire, Victim) is a rip-roaring slice of Edwardian-set action-adventure fashioned with the same Swinging-Sixties blend of irony, stylishness and humour as The Avengers and the James Bond films.

The Assassination Bureau was the only one I was interested in as I'm happy with my Criterion Naked Lunch.

I'll wait to see if anyone picks it up in the UK

NEW US/CAN TITLE: Heart of Dragon (1985) - Blu-ray Pre-order available from Arrow Films US - $28:00

Release date: April 11

"If you ever get in this much trouble, you’ll wish you had a brother like Jackie Chan.

Lifelong friends since they met as boys at Peking Opera school, Jackie Chan and Sammo Hung conquered the Hong Kong film industry side-by-side in the 1970s and 1980s. One of their greatest collaborations sees the two 'brothers' playing actual brothers for a change: 1985's Heart of Dragon, a film that combines heart-rending drama with pulse-pounding action!

Tat (Chan) is a hotshot cop with more stresses than he can bear: if he's not on the verge of getting beaten up on his day job, he's looking out for his mentally handicapped brother Dodo (Hung), who needs constant supervision in case his nave, kind nature gets taken advantage of. Tat wants nothing more than to escape his obligations and see the world; but when Dodo accidentally winds up in the line of fire, Tat must run into danger and make the ultimate sacrifice to save his brother.

More serious and emotionally driven than many of their prior films, Hung and Chan made sure not to skimp on jaw-dropping stunts and high-velocity violence while showing a broader depth to their talents than audiences had seen before. The result is one of the jewels of 80's Hong Kong action cinema, now restored with additional fight scenes filmed especially for the Japanese market!

NEW UK/US/ CAN TITLE: Lovers Lane (1999) - Blu-ray Pre-order available from Arrow Films Direct - 18:00

Release date: April 24

"Passions are aroused and old wounds reopened in this sassy post-Scream teen slasher based on the urban legend of "The Hook".

A steamy secret tryst that was brutally cut short on Valentine's Day an unlucky thirteen years ago comes back to haunt the teens who linger around the lovers lane where the double slaying took place. The County Sheriff Tom Anderson (Matt Riedy) has just about come to terms with the fact that it was his wife who died in another man's car on that fateful night. His daughter Mandy (Erin J. Dean), who as a four-year-old saw her mother's corpse carried away from the scene, has a different take on things. It doesn't help that her classmate Michael (Riley Smith) lost his father to the same hook-handed homicidal maniac in that night's incident. To cap it all off, as another Valentine's Day comes round, reports come through that the man arrested as "The Hook" has just bust out of his asylum.

Prepare yourself for the ultimate hook up in a scream-a-minute rollercoaster that marked the film debut of Anna Faris (the Scary Movie series; Lost in Translation).

Agree. I can see me getting the Street Fighter Collection, i love the first one and the price isn't bad at all. The Executioner set as well at some point look worth a pick up. Assuming Chan is Jackie then I've never been a big fan, more slapstick than real action.
