According to the official website, the DVD for Yoshimitsu Morita’s remake of Sanjuro will be out on 23 May, 2008.
The release will have two different versions, a basic DVD with a making-of documentary, as well as a more comprehensive double DVD set, which comes with additional cast and crew interviews, as well as other short documentaries and a photo booklet. None seem directly Kurosawa related, though. Neither does the disc seem to come with English subtitles, which is something of a disappointment.
See Kurosawa DVDs and Kurosawa Blu-rays for more information about Kurosawa’s films on home video.

Anyone interested in this? I having someone mail me a copy when it comes out, and can do so a little cheaper then the $44 amazon.jp is asking.
Plus I dont think Amazon.jp allows the input of addresses outside Japan.
