The article is worth its own thread for the Media Blasters manger admitting Ichi the Killer blu-ray was a pile of shit.

The better question is will we actually see this release before the end of the year knowing Media Blasters' track record?

In their defense the US theatrical print I saw in '03 was washed out and soft in detail.

Man, I hope so, I just pre-ordered it from Amazon, hopefully the man is true to his word and we are going to see a turnaround with the company, but we will see.

I hope you aren't talking about me... (I wrote the article)

The stuff about them turning around is mostly informed speculation and optimism. That being said, they've been fairly on the ball with the Shriek Show stuff, and maybe they've learned their lesson about assigning dates to titles.

I was talking about the Media Blasters comment, not you. I found the article thanks to a Edgar Wright retweet.

Ha! I didn't see that he retweeted it, neat! Anyway, all of the info comes directly from Media Blasters, except the quote from Sirabella, the information included in which MB's PR person would "neither confirm nor deny".

I'm more excited for their upcoming Godzilla releases, but this is also great news.

I don't have any links to verify info, but scuttlebutt on the net is that Media Blasters recently downsized their whopping staff of 15 people to 6. I didn't know they operated with so few employees. Sounds like they might just go under, which may or may not be a good thing depending on who would end up buying their library.

Oh yea, and apologies ahead of time to riot, whose dick probably got slightly hard seeing this thread get bumped.

I really want to see them stick around. Their constant delays get on our nerves but they release awesome movies and usually do a good job on them.

Looks like this prediction could possibly happen but I may have been too nice.

6 people is still enough, Synapse only has 2... they'll save money by outsourcing jobs to production houses, PR firms and what not. they have enough titles where they can survive off of their back catalog, they'll be okay.

My buddy saw this on the shelffor $15 today for the blu. I took a pic with it in his hand. I will post tomorrow, just want to say that it is real and pressed before I go to bed. I'm kind of pissed he saw it before I did, because he bought it and I don't own it now.

In fact here ya go. It is real. I can't attest to any quality or features though. All I know is the blu is out there and I'm pissed my buddy got it before I did.
