Police Story 1+2 UK BD Box: Japan Cut of Part 1

And Two Further Cuts of Police Story 2

We recently reported about the upcoming UK Blu-ray box of the Jackie Chan classics Police Story and Police Story 2 on 08/20/2018 (click) - with new 4K restorations being released for the very first time. It is a lovely box set what Eureka! Entertainment is about to release resp. in addition to the new scan, there is lots of bonus as well.

As for the original Police Story, an additional US Version will be available as bonus. Regarding Police Story 2, there are three official versions available and some additional cut versions of course. Unfortunately, only the longest of the versions was announced.

On Blu-ray.com, people were discussing the numerous versions of the second installment and an ultimate release should also contain the shorter versions that contain exclusive footage. The abscene of the original mono track was also criticized and people were hoping for the Japan Cut of Police Story 1 - in HD (comparison). A few users contacted Eureka! and they stayed in touch with the label. And now, it is now official: There will be more bonus features than originally announced - additional versions included.
