A cruel jidaigeki masterwork, a spectacular chanbara fantasy epic, and some more kung-fu action as Eureka’s June 2023 line-up is revealed


Eureka! has announced its June 2023 line-up. Featured amongst this line-up are Cynthia Rothrock as a butt-kicking FBI agent; a tragic Japanese Samurai classic from the screenwriter of Harakiri; and a story of ninjas, magic swordsman, evil assassins, and forbidden love, from the director of Battle Royale.

Cynthia Rothrock’s first leading role was also the first (and to this day, only) time a Western actress had lead billing in a Hong Kong film. Rothrock plays Cindy, the titular female reporter sent to investigate an unscrupulous newspaper editor (Ronny Yu). Mang Hoi handles directing duties along with Corey Yuen. Hoi’s graceful and acrobatic choreography fuses perfectly with Yuen’s hard-hitting style. But the star here is Cynthia Rothrock, and this deservedly secured her position as one of the top action stars of her era, and Eureka Classics is proud to present Lady Reporter in its UK debut on Blu-ray from a brand new 2K restoration. Available from 26 June, the first print-run of 2000 copies will feature a Limited-Edition O-card Slipcase, Collector’s Booklet and Facsimile Lobby Cards.

cruel jidaigeki masterwork from director Tadashi Imai (Cruel Tale Of Bushido) and screenwriter Shinobu Hashimoto, the writer of Masaki Kobayashi’s great masterpiece Harakiri, Revenge is a lacerating attack on the absurdity and hypocrisy of feudal Japan. Available for the first time in the UK, The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present Tadashi Imai’s Revenge in its worldwide debut on Blu-ray from a new 2K restoration. Available from 19 June, the first print run of 2000 copies will feature a Limited-Edition O-card Slipcase.

A spectacular chanbara fantasy epic from Kinji Fukasaku (Battle Royale), Samurai Reincarnation makes its UK debut from a stunning 2K restoration as part of The Masters of Cinema Series. Available from 19 June, the first print run of 2000 copies will feature a Limited-Edition O-card Slipcase.

This month Eureka is giving its customers the opportunity to buy all three of this month’s releases at a discounted rate of £54 (Full price £58.97) when bought together in the same transaction from the Eureka Store.
