Lastest CDJapan Newsletter - Pink Flamingos, Dawn of The Dead, Lion King Set etc.

Hello from CDJapan.co.jp,

Thank you for being a Movie Infomail Subscriber.
Featured here are this week's newest arrivals and recommended
future releases.


Antenna / Hole in the Sky
(English Subtitles) Special Edition
*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
Theatrically released in January 2004 in Japan, the film is
based on Randy Taguchi's best-selling novel. Ichio is the cook
in a roadside diner owned by his father. He has been feeling
responsible for the disappearance of his sister which happened
almost fifteen years ago. One day a woman named Taeko is
left penniless and hungry at the diner by a young man driving
a red sports car. Ichio decides to hire her out of pity, and
though wary of each other at first, their feelings toward one
another grow stronger, warming up Ichio's frozen emotions.
Special Features: making-of featurette, cast & staff interviews,
"Antenna" TV special, scenes from the Venice International
Film Festival, & more

Watch out for the following 2 excellent films by Takashi
Miike ("Audition," "Dead or Alive" series, "Ichi the Killer").

Zebraman
Premium Box - Limited Release
*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
Hit action comedy directed by Takashi Miike. It stars Miike regular
Sho Aikawa as Shin-ichi, a loser who tries to escape everyday life
by dressing himself as superhero Zebraman. The show got cancelled
34 years ago after only seven episodes, but that doesn't stop him
from acting out his fantasies. Donning his self-made black and
white Zebraman suit, Shin-ichi patrols the town pretending to be
his beloved hero. Soon, a UFO crashlands and the town is threatened
by an evil green crab-alien. Shin-ichi/Zebraman gets more than he
bargained for when he realizes he's the only one who stands
between the evil (and ugly) alien and a happy, monster-free
neighborhood community.
The film marks Aikawa's 100th silver screen appearance, and he's
as great as ever!
Extras include a bonus disc (60-minute making-of featurette,
extensive staff & cast interviews, & much more), a booklet,
TV-ban "Zebraman no Subete (All about Zebraman)," black-and-
white newspaper extra, "Zebraman" song CD single, 2010 calendar,
a tin badge, a ballpoint pen, character sticker(s), a filmstrip
from the theatrical movie.
Comes housed in a special "Zebra Box."

Chakushin Ari (a.k.a. One Missed Call)
Limited Release
*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
Kou Shibasaki ("Battle Royale," "Go") in her first starring role, plays
the heroine in a horror film directed by Takashi Miike. It's a rather
straightforward horror film for Miike, though embroidered with
elements of Miike's trademark weirdness.
Disc 2 contains a making-of featurette, TV spot(s), interviews
(actors Kou Shibasaki, Shinichi Tsutsumi, Kazue Fukiishi, director
Takashi Miike, and author Yasushi Akimoto), photo gallery, staff &
cast bios (stills), "Sonogo no Chakushin Ari," and more.
Disc 3 contains "Mou Hitotsu no Chakurin Ari (working title)
directed by Keita Tokaji.
A rubber figurine of "Natsumi-chan" included.

Limited Edition of 3000 Sets
*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
A 5-episode anthology of riotously funny short films based on the
Mangas created by Battlefield Baseball's Man Gataro.
Directed by Yudai Yamaguchi, also of "Battlefield Baseball."
The title short is about a man itching to buy dirty magazines but l
acks the guts to do it. A strange old woman gives him a secret potion
that would fortify his "innards."
Theatrically released in March 2004 in Japan.
Extras on the bonus disc include alternate versions of a couple
episodes, a variety show segment, making-of featurette, staff &
cast interviews, previously unseen footage, music clips, and more.

question: now why would someone buy the Japanese edition of Pink Flamingo's when some of the more graphic nudity and chicken copulation scene would be flesh censored?

Answer: Because not everyone lives in the USA and speaks English?

Just a wild guess
