At the dawn of the new millennium, Japan is in a a state of near-collapse. Unemployment is at an all-time high, and violence among the nation's youth is spiraling out of control. With schoolchildren boycotting their classes and physically abusing their teachers, a beleaguered and near-defeated government decides to introduce a radical new measure: the Battle Royale Act Overseen by their former teacher ( Beat Takeshi) Kitano and requiring that a randomly chosen school class is taken to a deserted island and forced to fight each other to the death, the Act dictates that only one pupil is allowed to survive the punishment. He or she will return, not as the victor, but as the ultimate proof of the lengths to which the government is prepared to go to curb the tide of juvenile disobedience. One of the most controversial films of all time, clever, creepy and ultra-violent, Battle Royale is the jewel in the crown of Japanese Shock Cinema.

If your a big fan and your tempted just a tiny bit then you might be sorry if you wait for the price to come down. This edition is limited to 10,000 worldwide and it is region free too, so people will be importing this version from all over the world.

LIMITED EDITION PACKAGING NUMBERED #/5000 WITH CERTIFICATE



You mean the first 5000 will be numbered?

Feel the same here, just not worth anything like £16.99. 5/8 is the most i would pay. for what is still, an old movie. a good one.

Had this on pre-order for a bit and was gutted when release date slipped to December but can't wait to see this version.
Think they initially said they were releasing 5000 copies then they came out to say it will be 10,000 but once they sell out they will just release a special edition but well worth grabbing this one

So either you dont get the number discs or you do.
And I am sure most with the certificate would have been reserved or wil be taken by shop staff.

I'm sure the certificate would be inside, so no way of telling which ones have one.

Not sure, that's the info on Arrows website, i thought it was limited to 5000 copies, not 10000.

best add blu ray to the title

Thanks for posting - One of the best films I have ever seen. Sequel was underrated,

even cheaper if you buy it from the hut or zavvi and use the walkers 10% code

Loved this film !. Don't have a bluray player but HOT for sure.

We saw this on the net yesterday, it did say ltd to 5000?

It says 10,000 on Arrow Films website, maybe it means 5000 on Blu and 5000 on DVD.

Correct, due to high demand they increased the blu-ray allocation from 5000 to 10000.
The DVDs however are still having a 5000 run.

You would be a fool to let this set slide. The Limited Edition will go out of stock soon enough, and the replacement Special Edition has the same discs but has less content.

Preordered this month ago. Was shipped to Germany yesterday and will arrive tomorrow

Excellent! Bought mine! One of my favourite films of all time. Heat added.

Got mine this morning, #4073

Its worth it. I pre-ordered from Amazon and got it for £14.99 as their guarantee. Have you seen all the goodies you get with this release ? Booklets etc galore. The best picture as well on 1080p and a lossless soundtrack :-)

Despatched x 2 yay! (1 for ebay in the future).

Hopefully get mine tomorrow as being sent to my mates house as ordered it using his prime membership
I presume Amazon will show as out of stock once they have sold their allocation of the limited edition until the special edition becomes avaliable

They finally shipped out my BR set tonight. Would have been nicer if they'd done it sooner, considering I pre-ordered on October 15th, but its Royal Mails problem now.
