You put similar in quotes. You weren't implying they're not similar?

Theatrical cut analysis: The U.S color timing and framing is a little different from the U.K version. It's missing the green tint that was present in previous versions. Wwatching back and forth between both versions, i felt the U.K version also looks better in motion.

I just think it would be fun if we could get five members here that are pro-Hunger Games to fight five members here that are pro-Battle Royale. We meet somewhere in the middle of the country and brawl. The last team standing is correct and the losing team must concede that the other was right

You know what would be great; If Anchor Bay could release the DC of Battle Royale II: Requiem to tie in with the Hunger Games sequel.. Maybe they can release 3-Discs Ultimate Editions of the 2 film while they at it (each with Both Cuts on separate discs and bonus DVD disc loaded with extras).

Hunger Games is the twilight US version of battle royal ;D


i owned both UK and US release. and i like the stronger colors more on the US release. the UK release looks like it has a wrong gamma level , and colors look kinda "weak"

usually i dont like how us releases are "color boostet" but it does look better on battle royal for my taste.

Never seen Hunger Games, but Battle Royale kind of reminds me of BTOOOM! in some ways. As for Hunger Games, well all I know is that it's newer than Battle Royale.

What exactly is the story on the version of Battle Royale that came in that special packaging? Is that pretty much impossible to find now? I see some on eBay that look like it but at pretty low prices, so I assume all of those are the rereleases. How many of those were produced?

It looks like those are still readily available for ~24.99, not sure if there's something different about it from earlier presses though

They're in an Amaray case now, not the book packaging. The book packaging didn't last for long. What you're seeing are probably the Amaray versions.
