Legendary cul­tur­al icon Bruce Lee con­tin­ues to be an unstop­pable force, unbeat­able war­rior and an unfor­get­table star. He is the very face of mar­tial arts mas­tery, the inspi­ra­tion for mil­lions to walk an enlight­ened path and men­tor to the great­est stars and fight­ers the world over. He became a hero to those who knew him in life and, fol­low­ing his death, a leg­end to all. Since his incred­i­ble rise to fame near­ly five decades ago, audi­ences across the globe have been amazed by the supre­me tal­ents and unde­ni­able charis­ma that make Lee such a beloved icon. As an actor, his impact on film was more pal­pa­ble than a round­house kick. He remains the sin­gle great­est fig­ure in mar­tial arts cin­e­ma; the man respon­si­ble for bring­ing the gen­re into the main­stream. Lee was also a lov­ing hus­band and father of two and an insight­ful philoso­pher who believed in the inte­gra­tion of the phys­i­cal and spir­i­tu­al to attain a bal­anced exis­tence. In every aspect of his life, he was any­thing but ordi­nary. His life remains an endur­ing source of inspi­ra­tion, and his amaz­ing tal­ents will con­tin­ue to make a dif­fer­ence on all those that come in con­tact with his lega­cy.

Loyal fans, movie col­lec­tors, pop cul­ture and mar­tial arts enthu­si­asts will be treat­ed to a whole new home enter­tain­ment expe­ri­ence to cel­e­brate the life and bril­liance of the late Bruce Lee when THE BRUCE LEE LEGACY COLLCTION 11-Disc Blu-ray™+ DVD box set pre­sen­ta­tion debuts in stores every­where on August 6 from Shout! Factory.

SPECIAL BLU-RAY™ MOVIE PRESENTATIONS OF FOUR BRUCE LEE CLASSICS

THE BIG BOSS

In his “first smash hit movie” (BBC), Bruce Lee stars as a young man who moves to Bangkok to take a job in an ice fac­to­ry. But soon he finds that the fac­to­ry is smug­gling heroin…and that in order to restore jus­tice to some miss­ing cowork­ers, he must come face to face with the Big Boss for a cli­mac­tic show­down!

FIST OF FURY

Bruce Lee is “pow­er­ful, humor­ous and charis­mat­ic” (Leonard Maltin) as a stu­dent who vows to uncov­er how his men­tor was mur­dered. Though all signs point to the local Japanese Martial Arts School, the local police won’t do anything…so he decides to restore hon­or to his teacher by tak­ing mat­ters into his own hands!

THE WAY OF THE DRAGON

Tang Lung (Lee) flies to Rome to help his friend, who is being forced by local gang­sters to sell her restau­rant. When Tang proves to be a threat to the syndicate’s plans, they hire the best mar­tial artists, includ­ing Colt (Chuck Norris). The two men bat­tle in the ancient city’s majes­tic Colosseum in what is “regard­ed by many as the finest mar­tial arts com­bat ever com­mit­ted to cel­lu­loid” (BBC)!

GAME OF DEATH

Billy Lo is a young kung fu star with a promis­ing career. Refusing to sign with the lead­er of a syn­di­cate known for its exploita­tion of enter­tain­ers, Billy’s mar­tial arts mas­tery is put to the test when he is bru­tal­ly harassed by his men. In a stun­ning show­down, Billy must “go one on one with each of the vil­lains in some of the most explo­sive fight sce­nes ever filmed” (Leonard Maltin).

FEATURE-LENGTH DOCUMENTARY PRESENTATIONS 

BRUCE LEE: THE LEGEND (and the orig­i­nal ver­sion BRUCE LEE: THE MAN, THE LEGEND)

Documentary Presentation (DVD)

The doc­u­men­tary high­light­ed Lee’s ear­ly child­hood films and touched on a more per­son­al side of the man. The film also offered a peek into his then Hong Kong home, his stu­dio office and more glimpses from behind the sce­nes of Lee’s two films ENTER THE DRAGON and GAME OF DEATH.

Ten years lat­er, Golden Harvest revamped the title and added more pro­duc­tion val­ue with new inter­views, footage from Lee’s appear­ances in the Longstreet TV series and addi­tion­al action seg­ments, includ­ing out­takes from GAME OF DEATH. In the United States, BRUCE LEE: THE LEGEND pre­miered on syn­di­cat­ed tele­vi­sion, along with the oth­er Bruce Lee films. They were a rat­ings block­buster.

I AM BRUCE LEE Documentary Presentation (DVD)

Produced by Derik Murray, Network Entertainment, Bruce Lee Enterprises and Leeway Media Group, and direct­ed by Pete McCormack, I AM BRUCE LEE delves deep­er into the com­pelling saga behind Bruce Lee than ever before and deft­ly unrav­els Lee’s fas­ci­nat­ing life through his own words and visu­al­ly stun­ning actions, as well as through the eyes of his fam­i­ly, close friends and lumi­nar­ies from the world of sports and enter­tain­ment. The film also exam­i­nes Lee’s con­nec­tions to the mod­ern field of Mixed Martial Arts. 

Among the notable lumi­nar­ies fea­tured in this film are NBA super­star Kobe Bryant, renowned box­ing cham­pi­on Manny Pacquiao, Academy Award® nom­i­nat­ed actor Mickey Rourke, Emmy Award win­ning actor Ed O’Neill, actress and MMA fight­er Gina Carano, mul­ti­plat­inum record­ing artist Taboo (Black Eyed Peas), UFC light heavy­weight cham­pi­on Jon Jones, and UFC President Dana White, who calls Lee the “Father of Mixed Martial Arts.”  Other inter­views fea­tured in the film include cel­e­brat­ed writer and direc­tor Reginald Hudlin, box­er Ray “Boom Boom” Mancini, and MMA fight­ers Cung Le and Stephan Bonnar. The peo­ple who knew Lee best, his daugh­ter Shannon Lee and wife Linda Lee Cadwell, as well as his friends and asso­ciates includ­ing leg­endary mar­tial artists Dan Inosanto, Bob Wall and Gene LeBell, offer unprece­dent­ed insights into his pri­vate life and career. 

Their can­did per­spec­tives, in com­bi­na­tion with rarely seen videos, archival pho­tos and footage from Lee’s ground­break­ing mar­tial arts action films, fur­ther estab­lish I AM BRUCE LEE as the defin­i­tive look at a man whose lega­cy will endure forever.
