Manga Entertainment confirmed by twitter that its DVD/BR of Redline will be delayed from its September 12 release. According to Manga, 'Redline date will be pushed back. Waiting to get confirmed release date for mid-October.' (As of writing, the Amazon UK site continues to show the incorrect September 12 date.)
Redline has had cinema screenings around the UK in recent months as part of the We Love Japan roadshow. There will be a late-night screening in Brighton on June 25 at the Duke of York's Picturehouse cinema.
The film follows JP, a daredevil driver with his customized vehicle named "Trans Am." He enters an interplanetary tournament, held once every five years, where the deadliest racers compete and many people plan to play the game for their own ends. The film is produced by the studio MADHOUSE and directed by Takeshi Koike (The Animatrix's "World Record").
