ACF 134: Cage Rage 3-DVD to arrive 07.22.08

For many of us fans of Asian cinema, martial arts is a topic of major interest. I know it is for me. Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) competition has overcome some initial bad press, and this hybrid of various fighting styles has recently started to appear in Asian films. Flash Point, which I reviewed in ACF 104, is a perfect example.

So I thought that at least some of you will be interested in hearing about Cage Rage: The Superstar Collection – 5 Event Set, the newest Mixed Martial Arts release from Mill Creek Entertainment. It's set to become available tomorrow, July 22. The 3-DVD-set will be priced to own at only $14.98!

Here's some publicity info that I received on this interesting and definitely bargain-priced release that contains over 12 hours of mixed martial arts mayhem:

Mill Creek recently signed an agreement with legendary ProElite, Inc., a sports entertainment and media company dedicated to producing world-class mixed martial arts (MMA) events, to distribute DVDs showcasing ProElite’s premier global MMA brands: Rumble on the Rock, ICON Sport and Cage Rage. The Cage Rage DVD follows on the heels of Mill Creek’s critically acclaimed and hottest selling new product, the “Rumble on the Rock 5-Event Set,” and EliteXC “Saturday Night Fights,” the very first MMA event on national broadcast television (CBS) on May 31. The event averaged 4.85 million viewers with a peak of 6.51 million viewers in the final 20 minutes during the main event between Kevin “Kimbo Slice” Ferguson and James Thompson.

“With the best fighters in the sport right on our cover (including UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva), we are positively thrilled to be able to continue to deliver the best value along with the best names in the MMA business,” said Ian Warfield, President and COO of Mill Creek Entertainment. “We have noticed an exploding demand for MMA content in the DVD marketplace. The addition of ProElite content to our product line significantly strengthens our position as a producer of exciting high-quality entertainment.”
