  Battle Royale II explodes onto DVD - yeech!
  This summer the wait is over. The fight for survival begins again but the rules are different. Battle Royale II: Requiem is exploding onto Tartan DVD from August 23 and it’s World War 3 in the classroom.

Set three years after the events in the phenomenally successful Battle Royale, a teenage terrorist group, The Wild Seven (led by survivors of that first battle) has plans for a worldwide campaign to destroy all adults responsible for the new Age of Terrorism. The government fights them with a reluctant army of school kids! If they can’t kill each other within 72 hours, then they will face certain death at the hands of the authorities (sounds like a no win to me!).

Director Kinji Fukasaku died during the making of the film and so it fell to his son, Kenta, to complete this apocalyptic vision, and he turned it into an even bigger box-office smash than the original in Japan. Liberally soaked in black humour and satirical comments on current world affairs, it’s set for cult status, endorsed by Tarantino in Kill Bill Vol 1.
