After the massive success of the Once Upon a Time in China series, Jet Li moved away from period settings and started to focus on action films set in the modern era, a decision that would make him an international icon and of the biggest stars in the history of martial arts cinema. Eureka Classics is proud to present three of Jet Li’s most beloved action films (The Enforcer, Dr Wai in“The Scripture with No Words”, Hitman) on Blu-ray for the first time ever in the UK. Available from 20 November 2023, the first print run of 2000 copies will feature a Limited-Edition O-card Slipcase and Collector’s Booklet.

Featuring incredible choreography by Ching Siu-tung (A Chinese Ghost Story, Duel to the Death), Royal Trampand Royal Tramp IIare a pair of hilarious and exhilarating action-comedies from director Wong Jing and the “King of Comedy” Stephen Chow. Eureka Classics is proud to present both films, newly restored in 4K, for the first time ever in the UK as The Royal Tramp Collection. Available from 13 November 2023, the first print run of 2000 copies will feature a Limited-Edition O-card Slipcase and Collector’s Booklet.
One of the most iconic masterpieces in cinema history, Robert Wiene’s Das Cabinet des Dr Caligarishook filmgoers worldwide and changed the direction of the art form. Now presented in a definitive UHD edition, the film’s chilling, radically expressionist vision is set to grip viewers again. Incalculably influential, the film’s nightmarishly jagged sets, sinister atmospheric and psychological emphasis left an immediate impact in its wake (horror, film noir, and gothic cinema would all be shaped directly by it). But this diabolical tale nevertheless stands alone – now more mesmerising than ever on Ultra HD Blu-ray. Re-issued as part of the Masters of Cinema range in a Standard Edition from 13 November 2023.
Although his name may not be as instantly recognisable as some of his contemporaries, Joseph Kuo was an incredibly successful filmmaker who consistently produced crowd-pleasing spectacles always in line with what audiences at the time wanted to see. Often handling writing, directing, and producing duties, the success of this multi-hyphenate filmmaker is even more remarkable considering that most of his films were produced independently, at a time when the kung-fu genre was dominated by the big Hong Kong studios. Across two sets, Fearless Shaolin!and Deadly Masters! collects eight of these independent productions, all fully restored on Blu-ray. Presented as part of the Eureka Classics range from 20 November 2023.
