Via August Ragone – Universal to Release Toho Kong Films on Blu Ray!

KKE 1967 Poster Jon 1Did I tell yah, or did I not tell yah?

Hot off the heels of Kraken announcing their three Godzilla Blu Ray releases for the summer, Universal has announced that they will be following suit with Blu Ray releases for King Kong vs Godzilla and King Kong Escapes! Word has been a’swirlin’ within the fandom that these two classic Kaiju romps would see a release from Universal in anticipation of Goji’s Big 60th and Legendary’s upcoming film, and here we are. Universal holds the rights to King Kong (quite fiercely) and has thankfully struck another deal to release his Toho outings once more. A few years back the same was accomplished for their two anticipated DVD releases of the same titles. The KKE DVD is of excellent quality – so here’s to hoping the Blu Ray ups the antie once more!

Here’s the full scoop vial Kaiju Guru August Ragone!

MIGHTY KONG! MIGHTY GODZILLA! Over the last day, rumors were swirling on various Home Video and Horror Film forums that Universal Studios Home Entertainment would be issuing Blu-rays of KING KONG VS. GODZILLA (1963) and KING KONG ESCAPES (1968) as individual releases on April 1, 2014. This has since been confirmed by listings on Amazon.com (thanks to Shawn Francis for the heads up):

KING KONG VS. GODZILLA: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00I3C1T6G

KING KONG ESCAPES: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00I3C1T7A

(Meanwhile, the second edition of my book, “Eiji Tsuburaya: Master of Monsters,” drops on April 8th!)

Eiji_Tsuburaya_Master_of_MonstersYou can pre-order both films from Amazon today! I just dropped my order before writing this article. And if you have not already, please pick up a copy of August’s book – the incredible Eiji Tsuburaya: Master of Monsters. It is an invaluable resource and an all around fantastic read – and the photos! Oh, the photos. 1st edition releases were all hardback (which I highly recommend if you can find it at a decent price – the 1st editions have become collector’s items and skyrocketed in price!) – But this second release sees the addition of a paperback version at half the price! Expect to spend around $25 – which is an excellent deal considering the contents of this book. August is an absolute wealth of connections and knowledge – and has always been kind enough to share it with the rest of the fandom.

The 2nd edition print and paperback drops April 8th!

Keep an eye out for even more Blu Ray releases, until then true believers!

From Sci-Fi Japan: Hedorah, Gigan, and Ebirah to Stomp Blu-Ray Players This Summer!

Real quick here, dudes! I have to point you toward this incredible news just posted by the Kaiju Gurus over at Sci-Fi Japan!

kraken01

What started out as just fan rumblings has begun to truly come to life – It really is shaping up to be the Year of GODZILLA! Kraken Releasing is bringing us three of Goji’s most fantastical Showa outings on Blu-Ray, and I could not be more excited. The three titles selected are some of the most unique and enjoyable to watch from the entire series:

– Ebirah: Horror of the Deep (1966)

– Godzilla vs Hedorah (1971)

– Godzilla vs Gigan (1972)

(click titles above to view our reviews/summaries of each title!)

I’m late to the game, but have been slowly collecting Blu-Rays since I received a player for Christmas this past year – and its been quite enjoyable! So far, both the original classic Gojira (1954) and Godzilla vs Biollante (1989) are available on Blu Ray here for Region 1 players (Us, UK, etc) – and I cannot wait to add these three classics to my collection! Stay tuned for distributing information, etc and make sure to read the entire article HERE at Sci Fi Japan or click their photo above to travel on thru!
