First up, our friends at Arrow Video just unveiled their November Blu-ray and 4K slate, which includes some gems…

It starts with Martin Scorsese the wolf of Wall Street on 11/17 on Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD (a UK-only title, but it’s already been released here in the US on both formats by Paramount). Also come that day the films of Quentin Dupieux Incredible but true (2022) and Robert Wise Audrey-Rose (1977), each on Blu-ray only. The former is a UK-only title, while the latter will be released in the US, UK, and Canada.

The next step is their previously announced Shawscope: Volume Two – Limited Edition Blu-ray box set on 11/21, which will also debut in the US, UK and Canada. The 10-disc set will include The 36th Chamber of Shaolin, Back to the 36th Chamber, Disciples of the 36th House, Crazy Monkey Kung Fu, Five super fighters, Invincible Shaolin, The child with the golden arm, Gorgeous Ruffians, Ten Kwangtung Tigers, my young aunt, Hong Kong Mercenaries, The Boxer’s Omen, Shaolin martial artsand The barefoot child.
