Two giant new Kaiju are setting their sights on North America via SRS Cinema – REIGO: KING OF THE SEA MONSTERS and RAIGA: GOD OF THE MONSTERS. Both will be available on limited edition Blu-ray and VHS exclusively at SRS Cinema, with wide release DVD’s coming in November. and (tentatively) February via MVD/SRS.
Pre-sales for both of these Limited Editions titles have begun and limited to 200 Blu-rays and 50 VHS. Copies are expected to ship around mid-September. Each physical media format – Blu-ray, DVD and VHS – will have artwork exclusive to that format only.
In regards to the Blu-rays, these are professionally run BD-R’s via Discmakers. SRS Cinema’s Blu-ray releases have received rave reviews and 1000s of enthusiastic and vocal fans, so because of that they are proposing that – if the titles can sell out – ie all 200 units – before they go to replication, they will run fully pressed Blu-rays (the limited editions will then expand to 1000 units on Blu-ray).
REIGO: KING OF THE SEA MONSTERS
The battleship Yamato, the largest and strongest of its time, is on patrol when a lookout spots a massive shape half-submerged in the distance. Believing it to be an enemy submarine, they fire and score a direct hit. But they are shocked when the object emits a strange cry as it sinks beneath the waves.
Soon after, something much bigger arrives, the massive kaiju Reigo, seething with rage at the murder of its cub. The monster attacks the Combined Fleet with incredible ferocity and awesome destructive power. The naval forces are caught off guard, and Reigo is able to destroy the escort ships and damage the Yamato before returning to the ocean depths.
Now the stage is set for a final battle to unfold between the world’s largest battleship and the mysterious dragon-like monster – who will prevail?
RAIGA: GOD OF THE MONSTERS
Global warming leads to excessive melting of the southern polar ice cap, disrupting Earth’s ecosystem. The receding ice brings long dormant ancient sea creatures back to life, monsters that set their sights on Japan. Among the kaiju is an enormous sea beast the locals refer to as the legendary Raiga. The monster attacks the city of Asakusa, bringing death and destruction as he tramples building and lays waste to the military. Can Raiga be stopped, or will all of Japan be destroyed by his fury?
