While the Weinstein Company has finally announced an August 2013 release date for Wong Kar-wai’s highly anticipated anticipated martial arts epic The Grandmaster in North American theaters, we still don’t know which version of the film it will be. Given the Weinstein Company’s history, there’s always the chance that they’ve further edited the movie to cut down on the runtime or some other form of censorship.
Why take the risk? The Grandmaster is coming to Import Blu-ray and DVD on April 23rd, 2013, and the Region A Blu-ray will play on your standard North American Blu-ray player or Playstation 3.
Hardcore collectors might want to spring for the Limited Edition Steel Book Blu-ray for $63.86. One advantage to the Steel Book is that it releases earlier, on April 15th.
