    Media Blasters has set a July 29 street date for one of their most- awaited DVD releases: Ryuhei Kitamura’s zombies-and-swords epic VERSUS. The release will be a two-disc set, with the first disc containing an anamorphic transfer with both subtitled and dubbed audio (including a DTS track), a Kitamura commentary in English and a cast commentary in subtitled Japanese. The second disc will feature a subtitled Japanese making-of featurette, a different English-language documentary, an interview with the editor, video clips from the movie’s premiere, three trailers and the NERVOUS mini-movie.

    I've got a VCD of Versus that I'm looking forward to retiring for this DVD. Versus is a cool movie and I'd love to get my hands on this Media Blasters release.

    Fuck yea. Now I dont have to spend $50 at poker industries to get the badass R2 edition. I just hope that this is the uncut version, but since it looks like MB is doing such a great job on the disc, I wouldnt doubt it.

    That sounds kickass. I'm really glad now that I didn't buy the expensive Japanese DVD. This really shoots to shit all the rumors that this would be a bare bones release.

    This is a cool movie, but the all-region I got from yumyumanime is such good quality, it'll be a hard decision. The extras might make it worth while.

    Although I do not remember where I read this, it was several months ago, news was that some scenes were being reshot for the US market as well as a some editing.

    Media Blasters is showing Versus on the big screen at several locations this summer, along with some other great films. Check the schedule out at

    I've never really checked the Asian forum before, but now that I'm here, I see all kinds of stuff that I want.

    Versus is great on the big screen, I caught it at the Seattle International Film Festival last year. Go see it!

    I could be wrong but I beleive they're releaseing 2 versions?

    One bare bones disc for people who don't care about extras.
    I'll pay the extra $5 bucks or so & get the special Edition!!

    Wow, MSRP $34.95 for the SE. You'd think Criterion was releasing this.

    is there more then one version of Versus?

    on that MB site, it says Versus- Directors Cut, Versus and Versus SE. I am just assuming that the SE will contain both versions of the movie if there is a difference... or at least i would hope so.
