Check Out The Action-Packed MARTIAL ARTS MOVIE MARATHON On DVD May 20th!

Martial Arts marathon THUMBWho’s ready for some kung fu action this summer?  Well, Shout! Factory is!  They’re bringing some classics from that golden era of the 70s to DVD this May!  It even has some films featuring the work of legendary John Woo and Sammo Hung!  I tend to really like these Movie Marathon packs that Shout! Factory puts out as they always seem to keep with a common theme for the movies and not just like they got some rights to movies and slapped them together “just because”.  Maybe they are and its just dumb luck I’m finding common occurrences in them.  Who knows?  What I do know is that this DVD comes out on May 20th and you can pre-order it now so it’ll get there just before that lazy Saturday that is perfect for just popping it in and binging through all 4 films on it.  Below you can find all the details provided from Shout! Factory.
