Severin Unleashes Legendary Martial Arts Mayhem with THE GAME OF CLONES: BRUCEPLOITATION COLLECTION, VOL. 1 Blu-ray Box Set (21 May)

Hours after Bruce Lee’s death, Bruceploitation was born. And for the next 10 years, talented martial artists were enlisted to mimic iconic aspects of Lee’s life, style and mannerisms. Fueled by equal parts deception and demand, these films instead created one of the most wildly entertaining sub-genres in movie history.

Releasing 21 May, Severin unleashes legendary martial arts mayhem with The Game of Clones: Bruceploitation Collection, Vol. 1 Blu-ray box set, including the award-winning documentary Enter the Clones of Bruce and 14 of the very best – and frequently very bizarre – films starring Bruce Li, Bruce Le, Dragon Lee, Bruce Liang and more, all restored for the first time ever from original film elements.

In the “fascinating gem of a documentary” (Culture Mix) Enter the Clones of Bruce, director David Gregory tracks down the surviving Bruces – along with martial arts legends, producers, directors, distributors, historians and more – to reveal the entire shocking and bittersweet saga behind a celluloid phenomenon that still refuses to die.

David Gregory – whose award-winning documentaries include Lost Soul: The Doomed Journey of Richard Stanley’s Island of Dr. Moreau and Blood & Flesh: The Reel Life & Ghastly Death of Al Adamson – now examines this fascinating phenomenon via interviews with Bruce Li, Bruce Le, Bruce Liang and Dragon Lee; martial arts legends like Angela Mao, David Chiang, Phillip Ko and Sammo Hung; and the producers, directors, distributors and experts – along with copious clips from the films themselves – that for the first time reveal the history, controversy and legacy behind one of the most bizarre genres in movie history. The documentary will also be available on all leading digital outlets on 30 April, and as a standalone Blu-ray on 21 May.
