Sabata Trilogy Coming to Blu-ray (UK)


Exciting news from Eureka Entertainment.  The Sabata Trilogy will be released as a boxed set in the UK on October 18.  It includes the two LVC movies, Sabata, and Return of Sabata, as well as the Yul Brynner classic Adios Sabata.

All three of these titles have been released on blu-ray previously across multiple regions.  While it does not look like there is any type of remaster involved, there does appear to me some great new special features.

Most importantly they have cut together a pretty awesome trailer!

Press release and extras listed below-

Three iconic spaghetti westerns by director Gianfranco Parolini in one explosive Blu-ray set! 

Sabata (1969)
Who he is and where he came from, no one knows. But the leading citizens of the Western town of Daugherty think he knows too much. And they want to silence him; forever. Get ready for the fast-paced, explosive action as Lee Van Cleef (For a Few Dollars More, The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly) stars as Sabata, a mysterious, steely-eyed gunslinger who imposes his bullet-laced brand of justice on the town. 

Adiós Sabata (1970)
Yul Brynner (Westworld, The Magnificent Seven) takes the reins as the title character in this action-packed sequel. Under the brutal rule of local garrison leader Colonel Skimmel, a group of Mexican revolutionaries hire gunslinger Sabata to rob a transport of Austrian gold in order to buy weapons. But Colonel Skimmel has other plans, taking the gold for himself and blaming the revolutionaries, but no scheming colonel is going to keep Sabata from earning his pay! 

Return of Sabata (1971) 
The great Lee Van Cleef returns as the famous freewheeling gunslinger Sabata. This third and final go-round for the enigmatic sharpshooter who administers a unique brand of justice in the American West in the years following the Civil War finds Sabata in the role of victim. Sabata’s skills as a gambler and thief are unparalleled. However, when a shifty band of desperadoes bilks him out of $5,000, he wants revenge!
