The Japanese title, バニシング・レッド, means "Vanishing Red".

Hi everyone!

I have been holding of on buying this movie on blu ray knowing it's the shorter version. I grew up with the Australian VHS rental and I own the Artisan unrated Dvd.

Does anyone know if there a good chance will see the unrated version come to Bluray or is it a rare print or something?

Since they included the longer ending on the shout factory and German releases only as a extra and in standard definition makes me think there won't be a HD unrated release.

Indeed, now that MGM is licensing a beautiful HD master of the R-rated version, I don't see a lof of chances to have the extended cut being remastered and released...

I too prefer and have first seen the unrated cut when it was released in French cinemas. If you'd like a non-HD widescreen version of it though, send me a PM...

Good evening,
I never seen this Joshua Tree. Shame on me...
Would like to buy the best edition in bluray (or dvd if it's uncut). Is it the NSM one ? Love the cover.
Merci.

The Shout Factory (US) and Nameless Media (not NSM, Germany) editions are of equal quality for the film (R-Rated, not but not extended version), and include the same extras.

Latest episode of "I Must Break" This Podcast is live, this time discussing ARMY OF ONE / JOSHUA TREE! On this episode I'm joined by David J. Moore, author of THE GOOD, THE TOUGH, AND THE DEADLY -- the ultimate action movie compendium book. Shorter than the other episodes, and while we don't go into as in depth detail as we did the other films thus far, this was still a fun one to go back to and revisit!

Not sure I posted it before, this is a full-page ad that I got from the French magazine "Vidéo 7" when the VHS was made available for retail (October 1994)

Released theatrically on this day 25 years ago in France. 8)
(67 screens; 29 in Paris & suburbs)

(scan from my poster)

I was finishing a sport summer camp and had to wait 2 days until I returned to the Paris area to go see it...!

I returned to the big screen once or twice more before it quickly disappeared after grossing about $1 million.

The sole big screen presentation of the extended cut with the downbeat ending (other theatrical releases had the other version)
