New Label Announcement


Established independent distributor of 'old school' martial arts movies, Soulblade Distribution, has joined forces with the UK's premier distributor of budget DVDs, Prism Leisure, to create a brand new DVD label, 55th Chamber. Launching in April 2006, 55th Chamber will be dedicated to releasing the very best of Hong Kong's old school martial arts films, all retailing at the fan-and collector-friendly price of £7.99.

For many martial arts genre fans the creation of 55th Chamber represents a perfect and affordable opportunity to experience some of the greatest and rarely seen classics of Hong Kong action cinema for the first time.

The first three films, to be released on 24th April, will be Sam Cheung's violent historical epic Death Duel of Kung Fu (starring Wong Tao, Han Ying and Liu Chung-Liang), Lau Kar-leung's martial arts actioner Prodigal Boxer 2: Secret of Shaolin Poles (starring Meng Fei, Delon Tam and Shoji Karada) and Lu Po Tu's comedy adventure My Kung Fu 12 Kicks (starring Bruce Leung and Guk Fung).

Announcing the launch Dharmesh Patel, managing director of Soulblade Distribution, said, "We have a strong product range and have access to hundreds of Modern Hong Kong Cinema titles; 55th Chamber has a clear plan for the next three years at least."

Prism's Marketing Director Adrian Turner added "We are delighted to be working so closely with Soulblade on this great selection of landmark Martial Arts classics throughout the Summer and beyond. These titles tap perfectly into the ongoing obsession with cult Asian cinema, and perfectly complement Prism's existing ranges of full-price and budget DVDs."
