In early 1990, Toho entered discussions with Miramax to distribute the film. When the discussion broke off, Toho filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles Federal Court, accusing Miramax of entering an oral agreement in June to pay Toho $500,000 to distribute the film. This lawsuit delayed the film's release for 2 years. An out of court settlement was reached with Miramax buying the rights to the film for an unreported figure. Miramax would've had entertained thoughts of releasing the film in theaters before the lawsuit, in the end it was decided to release the film straight to home video instead. HBO released the film on VHS in 1992 and Laserdisc in 1993. Miramax utilized the uncut English International Version of the film for this release. See more »
