AT LAST! 'Foxy Brown' Is Finally Coming To Blu-Ray (There's One Catch Though...)

Well like it’s about bloody time!

Foxy Brown

Well like it’s about bloody time!

Finally a Pam Grier film is going out on blu-ray DVD and It’s Foxy Brown. If you’ve seen it, then you know what the big deal is. And if you haven’t then, 1) there is no excuse, and 2) I can’t help you.

And check out these extra features, including a restored high definition presentation “for the first time in the world”, audio commentary by director Jack Hill, the documentary "From Black and White to Blaxploitation" in which actor Sid Haig speaks about his long and influential friendship with Hill, and another doc "A Not So Minor Influence" which is an interview with Bob Minor, the first black member of the Stuntman's Association, and co-star of Foxy Brown.

And there’s more!

There’s "Back to Black"  in which actors Fred "The Hammer" Williamson (Black Caesar, Three The Hard Way)Austin Stoker (Sheba Baby, Assault on Precinct 13), Rosanne Katon (Ebony, Ivory, and Jade) and film scholar Howard S. Berger speak about the enduring popularity of the Blaxploitation film (Where am I? I should be in the documentary too), a photo gallery of behind-the-scenes and publicity images and a trailer reel.

And there’s still more, including a collector's booklet featuring a new article on the film by Josiah Howard, who’s the author of Blaxploitation Cinema: The Essential Reference Guide, and a new interview with Pam Grier by Jack Hill biographer Calum Waddell, illustrated with original archive stills and posters.

And there still other extra features I haven’t even listed.

It comes out on June 24th.

There’s just one catch though...

It’s coming out only in the U.K. through Arrow Video right now. No American blu-ray DVD release is set for anytime soon. (How come those Limeys gets all the luck?)

And being a British DVD from Arrow, that means that it’s going to be Region B, which means that, unless you have an all-region blu-ray DVD player that can play DVD from any country, you won’t be able to play it here on an American market player.

Looks like I’m ordering an all-region blu-ray player TODAY.
