Move Over Hunger Games, Battle Royale Is Coming to Blu-ray

We have The Hunger Games movie, based on a 2008 book, coming out soon on March 23, 2012. It’s a movie about kids killing each other to stay alive. I remember another movie that resembles this called Battle Royale, which is about Japanese high school kids being forced to kill each other to stay alive. What are the odds that Battle Royale is being released on Blu-ray and DVD March 20, 2012. If you haven’t been importing this, then you’ll get a chance to own this in North America for the first time, officially.

Battle Royale was an awesome movie that went all out with its violence and teenage love triangles. The Japanese sure know how to cross the boundaries of sick and twisted. I’m happy to hear that after 10 years, the North American market is now ready to unleash this kid-on-kid killing movie onto the public.

Check out the trailer!

Synopsis – BATTLE ROYALE. A title that has shocked, thrilled and unnerved

Authors, filmmakers and film fans the world over consider the film and its 2003 sequel Battle Royale II: Requiem sacred cinematic classics.
