Japan Salute of the Jugger



TC Entertainment will release the 104-minute cut of David Webb Peoples' Salute of the Jugger (1989) on Blu-ray in Japan later this year.

Now, before you get excited, this release will be 1080i, and upscaled in a 4:3 (1.33:1) aspect ratio. However, it is said to be "Digitally Remastered" from what sounds like a master tape format, that would have been the source for VHS and LD releases in Japan, so it may end up looking quite acceptable. Additionally, it will be on a BD-50 with DTS-HD MA 2.0 audio, and it will also include an additional 91-minute cut (probably the US cut) as an extra feature, as well as a trailer,

Right now, there are three different options for this release. One is a standard edition, and the other comes with a bonus post card, these two options will be made available on September 7th, 2016. However, there will also be an Amazon.co.jp Exclusive edition, which comes with a pamphlet and tote bag in tow, and will release over one month earlier, on August 3rd, 2016.

EDIT: The new release date is February 8th, 2017, and January 13th, 2017 for the Amazon exclusive.

Very nice to get the 104 min version but with a 35 mm negative one would hope the owners or some collectors would make that print avaliable for a nice 2K/4K scan. There are many small companies that put time in hunting good sources down but TC seems to go the easy route

Aren't these two just the same cut, just with the UK timing referenced from a PAL release?

Might be only US that is missing stuff. Took it from imdb.

The US R-Rated Version misses out nearly 12 minutes of plot sequences that are featured on the European Version of the movie. Additionally an alternate ending can be found in the European Version as well.

Yeah, a friend owns the US laserdisc. I picked up the UK DVD when that was released.

It's not really an "alternate" ending, it's not like a different team of juggers wins or anything. It's just an extension on the ending.

The US version ends with Rutger Hauer walking away as the credits roll and the league's vultures descend upon the team. The European version just shows you what they say. It may be because I saw it first, but I prefer the US ending, it makes the cynicism more subtextual and implicit, the European version doesn't really give you anything new, it just makes that very explicit.

I just looked on CD Japan, and it says that this release has been cancelled.

Does anybody have any information about that? I'm very disappointed, even though the price was ridiculous anyway.

I'm not surprised this never came to be but the fact that someone actually still pays attention to this underrated gem is kind of encouraging. My guess is they haven't managed to find a good enough master source to warrant a Blu-ray release (Dare I say "yet"?).

To my knowledge there's never been a widescreen verion of this title released on any home video format (Not 100% sure about the German language LD though so I might be wrong). The shortened and much maligned "Blood Of Heroes" did get a widescreen release in Denmark (of all countries), but I don't even consider that the same movie because of all the sub-par editing. Unfortunately I believe the chances of ever seeing a decent release of this classic are pretty slim.

Well I stopped underestimating germany long time ago since one of their label kept getting all the b-classic gems and totally waste them with dnr and lossy audio. But they still could find a lot of 35mm reels and getting us 1.85:1 aspect of many movies I only seen in fullscreen on vhs so I won't abandon hope on this just yet

I hope you aren't suggesting Krekel would get his stinking hands on it? I'd rather watch a tenth generation bootleg than give him money for any of his abominations!

Does anybody have any information about that? I'm very disappointed, even though the price was ridiculous anyway.
Seems like just moved if amazon is correct, Title Will Be This Released On February 8, 2017.

edit: wow just a second late there

Lionsgate. Maybe they could pull it out for their Vestron line but if they do I would be surprised if it ended up anything other than the Blood of Heroes cut.

Default New Aspect Ratio?

Just noticed that Jugger is listed at amazon.co.jp with a 16:9 (1.78:1) aspect ratio. If the extended delay is actually because they are upgrading this to a widescreen release I'll get to die a happy man after all.

No Amazon site is ever a reliable source for the aspect ratio of a release. If you read the specs in the first post (which were provided to Amazon by TC Entertainment, the distributor of the Blu-ray), you'll see that it will still be a 1.33:1 SD video presentation, upscale to 1080i.
