Hell yes! Joe Ma’s Sasori on R2 DVD

21 July 2009 11:27 AM, PDT | 24framespersecond.net | See recent 24FramesPerSecond news »

Pinch me I’m dreaming! We’ve been waiting well over two (count them, Two) years to see this flick released anywhere with English subs! Joe Ma’s reboot of the classic 70’s extreme hard core revenge Manga series, Sasori (Female Scorpion Convict) is now up for release on R2 DVD, and to say we’re over the moon about this fact would be a teeny bit of an understatement. Sasori is release by Cine Asia in the U.K on August 10th. Joy! Synopsis: Faced with a do-or-die ultimatum, Nami (Miki Mizuno) is forced to commit a homicide, by a trio of sadistic murderers. Abandoned by her family and imprisoned by a brutal regime, she wins the battle for supremacy in a series of punishing bare-knuckle brawls, only to be tortured and buried alive by the ruthless warden. Left for dead, she is revived by the mysterious Corpse Collector, »

A Trailer Finally Arrives For Joe Ma’s Sasori!

19 July 2009 2:33 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

[Update: the Far superior UK trailer can be found below the break.]

Well, it’s been years, frankly, and while I have no idea what took so long, Joe Ma’s Hong Kong-Japan co-produced re-envisioning of classic cult title Female Convict Scorpion is finally geting a release in Japan.  Which means that literally two full years after we first ran stills from the film’s shoot we can finally share a trailer.  Temper your excitement, though ... while it’s good to finally have a trailer the source quality on this is unforgivably bad - low resolution and poorly encoded.  But, for the time being it’s all there is and you’ll find it below the break.

Female fight pic Coweb heading to the U.S?

15 March 2009 4:22 AM, PDT | 24framespersecond.net | See recent 24FramesPerSecond news »

Well well...Upcoming Hong Kong martial arts actioner Coweb (helmed by Xiong Xin Xin, once Wushu champion, turned actor and now director) has just appeared on the company site of U.S distributor Arclight films which has us wondering if we might well be in for a North American release? The film stars female martial arts newcomer Jiang Luxia in the lead, as the kick ass femme fatale, fighting her way through a literal army (wait till you see the trailer) of bad guys to save her boss from a gang of kidnappers. Great news if it is. Let's hope it sees the light of day a little quicker than another Arclight acquisition; Joe Ma's revenge pic Sasori, which they've been sitting on for over a year and still no sigh of a (Just saying Arclight) release. Coweb is set to open in Hong Kong in May. »
