@kingofkungfu2002 I'm glad to hear that you like it. And to both of you, and everyone else that's buying these releases- kudos! I know a lot of already own some or all of these films (I already own around 4-6 different releases of each of these Chan titles), so it's even cooler that you are supporting these. And the good news... it's not for nuthin'. I received my copies of CRIME STORY today and the film has never looked better! The PQ is absolutely stunning. I just watched the film in preparation to create the art, and no other version I've seen can hold a candle to the 88 Films Blu-ray. Simply stunning looking.

Doing the artwork for official releases of Jackie Chan films is definitely a new career high for me. So glad I can share my love for Hong Kong cinema with the world in a unique and lasting way. I'm honored to think people will have my work on their shelves representing movies I've geeked out about for decades. When I opened that box and my wife and I held the copies of it... well, it was a moment I'll never forget.

Here's what is included on the upcoming MIRACLES Blu-ray, which is up for pre-order right now at: https://88-films.myshopify.com/collections/pre-orders/products/miracles-the-canton-godfather-1

Info from 88 Films' website...

This item is a PRE-ORDER with a street date of December 9th, 2019. Any additional items purchased alongside this one will NOT ship until all items are in hand at our warehouse.

An optimistic Gwok Zan-Waa (Jackie Chan) arrives in Hong Kong, quickly finding himself impoverished. That is, until a serendipitous encounter with a rose seller (Gua Ah-Leh) leads to his inadvertent appointment as boss of a local gang. Amidst the reluctant leader’s efforts to reform their fraternity and businesses, is an endeavour to share his new-found fortune with the bestower, all whilst trying to stave off rivals and the authorities. A remake of Frank Capra’s ‘Pocketful of Miracles’, Miracles - also known by its Hong Kong English title ‘Mr Canton and Lady Rose’ - is an action-comedy-romance set against a backdrop of lavish elegance and style.

        Very happy to hear you like them. Thank you!

        That is some cover. Unfortunately I don’t think any of my players can play region b

        I highly recommend you ask Santa for an All-region Blu-ray player this year. Were you on the "naughty" or "nice" list for 2019 @Jay Stone? 😄 Having the freedom to purchase and play the best releases of the films you enjoy, regardless of their country of origin, is very freeing. A worthwhile investment for a lover of (especially) foreign films. Ever since HKFlix closed down I get my All-region players from 220 Electronics web-store. They've never let me down.

        @sifu iron perm although many other Jackie Chan films come close (and there's always an ever-changing battle for second place between many titles), DRAGONS FOREVER is probably my favorite. So you can bet I'm giving it my all. Hopefully, in your book, it will eligible for a "supertastical" rating.

        Judging by your other cover's Bob, I think it's safe to say Benny Urquidez will not be absent from this cover art. I'm trying to think of a legit release of Dragon's Forever, that actually has his him featured in the cover art?.
