Details of Park Chan-Wook's Vengeance DVD box set from Tartan
6th Aug 06
At last, Tartan have got around to releasing a three-film box set of one of our current favourite directors, Park Chan-Wook, and even better, the three films are all part of his amazing ‘vengeance’ trilogy, namely Sympathy For Mr Vengeance, Oldboy and Lady Vengeance (as it is known in the UK).
The box set is due to be released on October 23rd, with each film to receive the double-disc treatment. Mr Vengeance will contain two hours of extra material, whilst Oldboy will feature an all new commentary by Ain’t It Cool’s Harry Knowles and a new English dubbed version of the film.
Lady Vengeance will include additional commentaries and deleted scenes and will also contain the Fade-To-Black-And-White version of the film, previously only available on the Korean import disc.
The box set will be on sale for £49.99, and there will also be a special edition numbered box set designed around the Oldboy artwork and will include Vengeance-themed stuff such as a hammer / bottleopener (£69.99)
8th Jun 04 The film opens with a very similar voiceover narration to the original (see Trivia) but with different footage as we tour the furnace room, all fingernail scratches and blood-clotted hair, of the Hewitt residence.
