MUMBAI: Star has inked its first ever Blu-ray licensing deal with Hong Kong based distributor Kam & Ronson Enterprise.
Star owns Fortune Star, which boasts of a contemporary Chinese film and television library.
The deal covers Hong Kong and Macau but the Blu-ray discs will also reach Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand through third party distributors. It marks the very first time a Bruce Lee title has been released in the high definition Blu-ray format. Four Bruce Lee titles, including The Big Boss, The Way of the Dragon, Enter the Dragon and Fist of Fury, have been licensed and will be available to consumers in June.
The other titles to be distributed by Kam & Ronson Enterprise on Blu-ray include Jackie Chan’s Police Story 1, 2 and 3 as well as Jet Li’s Once Upon a Time 1,2 and 3.
Star vice president of program syndication and distribution Yvonne Chuang said, "The Blu-ray format, with its enhanced video and audio features, is something movie fans from across the world have held in high esteem, particularly with premium and cult titles such as the ones included in this deal. We look forward to working with Kam & Ronson as well as distributors throughout the world to give viewers everywhere an opportunity to see these incredible titles like never before."
