CDJapan Newsletter: Two New Superbits & More!

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.


Cutie Honey
Directed by NGE's creator Hideaki Anno
*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
Anime/manga guru Go Nagai created Cutey Honey in the early
'70s. Thirty years since then, the popular magical/android-girl
series has been turned into a brand new live action movie.
Respelled "Cutie," the film has been directed by none other than
Hideaki Anno, the cult helmer who created "Neon Genesis
Evangelion."
The film, starring popular and uber sexy Japanese idol Eriko Sato
as the title character, offers a wild ride with its high-powered
action and intentionally campy fun. Picture a mix of "Mighty
Morphin' Power Rangers," "Austin Powers," and "The Powerpuff
Girls".... and you get the idea!

The Collector's Edition includes a 12-page booklet, a bonus disc
containing making-of featurette, deleted scenes, promo reel, and
a gallery production matarials.
Other extras include 60-page storyboards by Shinji Higuchi, a
20-page storyboards, and a manga by Shinpei Ito.
Also included is a bonus figure-doll (the production of which was
supervised by the film's director Hideaki Anno himself) that's not
obtainable elsewhere.

I was looking forward to the CUTIE HONEY DVD being released, but so far there's no word on if it has English subs. Oh well, it's release date is still 4 months away, so I guess it's still possible.

I'm almost tempted to get the Black Rain Set, but it looks like no 16:9

I might get Bicentennial Man

I can't believe they're doing a 15th anniversary of Black Rain and NO anamorphic transfer.

Tragic. Just tragic.

I have been waiting for this release since the film was first announced. As of right now there is no listing for english subs. I am hoping that since Anno's last live action film Shiki-Jitsu came with subs that Cutie Honey will too. Unfortunately I fear that they might not put subs so as to be abel to ask for more licensing money for one of the anime companies who do live action stuff in R1 who might pick it up (due to it's relevance to anime). I hope it does come with subs or that there is a Korean release chock full o' goodies.
