Eureka Entertainment to release the ONCE UPON A TIME IN CHINA TRILOGY, Tsui Hark’s dazzling kung-fu trilogy starring Jet Li as part of the Eureka Classics range on Blu-ray from 10th December 2018, sourced from brand new 4K restorations and presented in a Limited Edition 4-Disc Box Set featuring a Collector’s Booklet.

Tsui Hark s phenomenal Once Upon a Time in China trilogy finally arrives on Blu-ray in the UK from brand new 4K restorations! Starring Jet Li as the real life Cantonese folk hero, Wong Fei-hung, a physical embodiment of traditional Chinese values and moral incorruptibility, this martial-arts epic charts China s transition into the modern-world as it gradually abandons its old traditions and begins to accept the inevitable encroach of Western cultures.

With action sequences choreographed by the legendary Yuen Woo-ping, the Once Upon a Time in China series is a glorious high-point in martial-arts filmmaking, and Eureka Classics is proud to present Tsui Hark s original trilogy, as well as Once Upon a Time in China and America (which saw Jet Li return to the Wong Fei-hung role after a four-year gap) for the first time on Blu-ray in the UK in a special Limited Edition 4-Disc Box Set loaded with extra content.(4000 copies)


Once Upon a Time in China – In 19th century Canton, Wong Fei-hung battles ruthless imperialist forces determined to subjugate his country and enslave his people, leading to a climactic fight sequence still regarded as one of the best ever filmed.

Once Upon a Time in China II – Wong Fei-hung faces off against the White Lotus Cult, a dangerous xenophobic group seeking to drive all European influence out of China, as well as a corrupt military officer, played by Donnie Yen in his breakthrough role.

Once Upon a Time in China III – Wong Fei-hung travels to Peking and is forced to enter a martial-arts contest in order to prevent an assassination attempt against a prominent Chinese diplomat who wants to showcase traditional Chinese martial-arts, and restore national pride.

With action sequences choreographed by the legendary Yuen Woo-ping, the Once Upon a Time in China series is a glorious high-point in martial-arts filmmaking, and Eureka Classics is proud to present Tsui Hark’s original trilogy, as well as Once Upon a Time in China and America (which saw Jet Li return to the Wong Fei-hung role after a four-year gap) for the first time on Blu-ray in the UK in a special Limited Edition 4-Disc Box Set loaded with extra content.

Do i need another boxset for this trilogy? o_O

Think i’d rather see a full uncut restored Rumble In The Bronx.

Do you have it in HD though?
Also I seem to remember the HKL DVD had missing audio in one of the action scenes in 2.

No, but i have full uncut DVD. I’m always tempted though.

I have always had a (*cough*) copy of these films but just like police story, I will be looking to buy these. I wish they released Police Story 3 as well but oh well.

This is a very nice trilogy. Line Police Story I had to have it. That artwork is new. Not bad.
