As the home entertainment industry prepares to enter a new world of technology, Tartan Video USA announces the release of its first High Definition title, Park Chan Wook’s cult Asia Extreme revenge thriller Oldboy. ( Watch the trailer its insane ) This premier Blu-ray title from Tartan will be available November 6th in video stores nationwide. 

The Blu-ray format has broader industry support, a picture quality six times that of current DVDs, and fully uncompressed audio all set to increase consumers’ viewing pleasure beyond their wildest expectations. Tartan Video’s owner and self-professed early adopter, Hamish McAlpine, says, “To go with Blu-ray was a no-brainer for Tartan.  Not only is the format superior to HD-DVD, but also the fact that 7 out of 8 studios have chosen to release their films on Blu-ray means that this so-called ‘format war’ is over before it has really begun.”

Oldboy is Park Chan-Wook’s classic genre-defining revenge tale of a man who’s wrongly been imprisoned for 15 years and is then suddenly released. Given money and a cell phone, he’s challenged to discover who incarcerated him in the first place, but he only has five days to uncover the truth. Even with a mysterious young girl to help him, his tortures have just begun. Cannes-winner championed by Tarantino, Oldboy has become a cult favorite, regularly appearing in top ten best movie polls.   

Considered the ultimate high for Asia Extreme Film Fans this DVD comes with 3-audio commentaries from the director, cast and crew, an optional English language dub, trailers and a score of other exciting special features listed below. There is also a standard definition bonus disc filled with behind the scenes documentaries, cast and crew interviews, and other exciting features.

Korean, with English and Spanish subtitles, Oldboy is presented in anamorphic widescreen, Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound and DTS Surround Sound 5.1. Oldboyalso contains original English-dubbed soundtracks.
