Criterion’s Eclipse box set ‘The First Films of Akira Kurosawa’ coming in August

Ever since Criterion published their massive AK100 box set late last year, we have been waiting for them to put out the early films in a separate edition. Criterion has previously hinted that this will indeed happen at some point, and according to this Criterion product page it now seems like this will happen on the 3rd of August, 2010.

The box set, released as part of the Eclipse series, will include Kurosawa’s first four films: Sanshiro Sugata, The Most Beautiful, Sanshiro Sugata, Part Two and The Men Who Tread on the Tiger’s Tail. As with other Eclipse releases, the DVDs will not include any supplementary material.

Thanks to Blah for sending me the link!

Ah, great to hear. I can finally pitch the video tapes.
