[I 160w br_post I]Ahhh, BATTLE ROYALE. When the film came out in Japan a few years ago, it became an instant sensation. Everywhere it opened in Europe and Asia, it was a film of constant conversation, both timely and shocking. So timely and shocking that years later, the film still has not gotten a U.S. release. Amazingly enough, BATTLE ROYALE also happened to be an excellent film.



Now a sequel is on the way and we have some goodies for you. This link will take you to a page with two sets of links. The first set will link you to some behind-the-scenes footage while the second set of links will bring you the long-awaited trailer to BATTLE ROYALE II. So, and revel in the carnage.

Oh, almost forgot, according to MIKE's uber-excellent BATTLE ROYALE 2 website, there's now a Hong Kong "Theatre Cam" BR2 DVD floating around so beware if you see it on EBAY. The image quality is said to be supra-shitty but it's reported to have ENGLISH SUBTITLES so ONLY the diehardest of the BATTLE ROYALE diehards need only apply!

Here's a link to some of the samples:

I just bought the Special Edition to both BR's. I've seen the trailer to the first one, really love to see the trailer to the 2nd one but can't find it anywhere. Seems all links are broken.
