Big news for our North American fans and customers - Sushi Typhoon recently signed a deal for domestic distribution of all our remaining films with stellar Asian film specialist WellGo USA!
This includes YAKUZA WEAPON, MUTANT GIRLS SQUAD, KARATE-ROBO ZABORGAR, DEADBALL and Yoshihiro Nishimura's zombie epic HELLDRIVER, which will be the first Sushi Typhoon / WellGo USA out of the starting gate, coming to DVD, Blu-ray, VOD and various streaming or download sites this November!
Anyone familiar with WellGo's track record releasing gorgeous, extras-laden DVDs and Blu-rays of Hong Kong action films like IP MAN 2 and LEGEND OF THE FIST will know what to expect from our upcoming Sushi Typhoon discs. Great-looking, hi-def transfers, lots of extras, beautiful packaging, and wide availability at a bunch of retailers in the US and Canada. To say that we're all very excited about this partnership is a big understatement - we're overjoyed!
Watch for an official announcement and release date for HELLDRIVER very soon. In the meantime, check out WellGo's information page for the film, like them on Facebook, follow them on Twitter, and definitely like their HELLDRIVER Facebook page! Watch for more title-specific pages coming soon, too.
We hope to be doing some additional HELLDRIVER theatrical and midnight screenings around Halloween, too, so if you've got a favorite cinematheque in your hometown, give us a shout about it via the Contact page.
Oh, and here's a tidbit of information you won't see (yet) anywhere else: the WellGo USA DVD and Blu-ray of HELLDRIVER will feature the longer, uncut, directors version, which has only screened a few times in the world outside of Japan! Along with WellGo, we're dedicated to bringing our fans only the bloody best, fully uncut and in its original language format. Watch this space for more info, coming soon!
