88 Films is set to release The Iceman Cometh Deluxe Collector’s Edition Blu-ray on Boxing Day in the UK.
The Iceman Cometh (1989) is a Hong Kong martial arts fantasy film directed by Clarence Fok, it stars Yuen Biao, Maggie Cheung and Yuen Wah.
This is a film I’m not familiar with so I can’t give you too much on the film itself. I can however give you the details of this 88 Films blu-ray release.
The Iceman Cometh Deluxe Collector’s Edition Blu-ray – Limited Edition
Hopefully the picture quality is good, 88 Films say “Stunning New 2K Transfer from the Original Film Negative High Definition Blu-ray (1080p) presentation”.
There’s no mention of any restoration work so I guess we will have to wait and see.
