The Cannon Ninja Trilogy on dual format Special Edition in January

12 November 2015

Eureka Entertainment have announced the release of The Ninja Trilogy, a trio of crazed martial-arts classics from the 80s starring Sho Kosugi, in a Dual Format (Blu-ray & DVD) edition in the UK on 18th January 2016.

The wild world of Cannon Films rarely became more delirious or influential than this trio of rollocking, crazed action classics. Beginning with Enter the Ninja, they spearheaded a craze for the titular martial-arts assassin that spiralled throughout the decade and beyond, but this eccentric trilogy still stands alone.

Enter the Ninja (featuring Franco Nero and Susan George) deals with a couple on oil-rich land in the Philippines under siege from a ruthless industrialist. Revenge of the Ninja moves to Salt Lake City, Utah, where Cho and his son Kane begin a new life after their family is killed in Japan. After opening a doll shop, a criminal betrayal leads to an almighty showdown. Ninja III: The Domination unleashes the tale of an aerobics instructor possessed by an evil ninja’s spirit to gain revenge from beyond the grave.

Featuring the iconic Sho Kosugi in all three films, Eureka Classics presents these jaw-dropping 80s video-shop staples in a new Dual-Format (Blu-ray & DVD) Special Edition collection on 18th January 2016 at the RRP of £39.95.

Disc specifications:

  • High-definition presentations of all three films

  • English subtitles for the deaf and hearing-impaired

Special features:

  • Commentaries, interviews and trailers

  • A booklet featuring new writing and archival imagery
