This one was a surprise even for me so yes more are coming!

They had changed the schedule around and forgot to tell me. They did say I was welcome to help them so any suggestions you want to see on this release please post.

If anyone has access to the Hong Kong laserdisc
put out by Star please PM me right away!

Proper HD release of this movie has already been out from HK (and botched release from US); can I ask you that have not bought it, why didn't you buy it?

What can we expect better/more from Eureka release?

- Well it won't be A-locked for a start
- Hopefully the Eureka will come with extras
- Probably a tighter encode

That's if it's the same master. Could be a new one. Won't know until it's officially announced.

Great that Eureka is releasing this one as well, but is it really a brand new 2k restoration? The HK bluray released years ago was true HD, wonder if it's the same version. Also HK movies from the 90s didn't have mono sounds did they? I believe this one was shot in stereo, so promoting original Cantonese mono on this one is kind of wrong.

Wish they could get interviews with Kumiko Goto and Joey Wong for this release.

@Irongod2112: I have the recent HK BD and HKL DVD. I "combined" the special features of them both and when I compare them to the features list of this release, I see few differences:
  • Commentary (from HKL DVD) I have personally fitted/fixed the HKL DVD commentary to match the HK BD video length. There is a very slight audio pitch change though. I can contribute this audio track to Eureka if needed.
  • Jackie Chan animated Biography (35 min) - text rolling and English narration. Dunno if that can be used though. (from HKL disc)
  • Both HK BD and HKL DVD have different outtakes, HK BD 3 min (titled: Out Take MTV) and HKL DVD 5 min. The feature list of this release only says "Outtake Montage".
  • Trailer 4 min (from HKL DVD... there's also UK HKL promo trailer 2 min but that probably can't be used for obvious reasons)
  • Picture gallery, 28 pictures (from HKL DVD)

Also, the features lists "JC interviewS"; the HK BD had 10 min interview and HKL DVD 4 min interview, I guess both these are included?

And what about the subtitles? Doesn't HKL DVD and HK BD have dubtitles? There's no mention of "Newly translated English subtitles" on this Eureka release.

Takes me back to waiting eagerly for a new Hong Kong Legends dvd release.

I've got 60-ish titles, and this is another one to upgrade

I used to love going down to MVC to get the new HKL Jackie Chan releases, I remember struggling to get them once MVC closed up as my HMV didnít seem to stock them most of the time, luckily Golden Discs had me covered

The internet has thankfully eliminated many of these issues but I do miss having to put a bit of effort in once in a while

Iím all for Eureka becoming the new and improved HKL though

IIRC the HKL DVD had subtitles - at the start Jackie says "Happy New Year!" in Cantonese, but in the English dub he says "Introduction".
Who did the old HKL commentary - Bey Logan? Probably would be dropped from the BD but idk
I hope the character's names aren't Anglicised (Joey Wang's character's name is given as Kaori not Carrie for example)

Not sure about that one. The Hong Kong Star laserdisc is stereo. I used to own it but sadly sold everything in the late 90's

It's a new 2K scan and was done on September 17th 2018

I'm hoping to get the Gala Gala Happy musical number subtitled on this release. Anyone already have this done or willing to work on them?

Please PM me

Old? Are there others? HKL disc has Bey Logan. I just double-checked it. Also noticed that the commentary starts in the middle of a sentence for some reason (introducing JC character). There's some silence in the beginning and then it starts abruptly.
