Shaft Trilogy released today on Blu-Ray in UK

Today sees the release of the original Shaft trilogy on Blu-Ray (as well as DVD) in the UK. This mirrors the Warner Archive release in the USA on 21 May 2019.  The set includes Shaft (1971), Shaft’s Big Score! (1972) and Shaft in Africa (1973).  The Shaft disc includes the short documentary Soul in the Cinema: Filming Shaft on Location as well as the 1973 TV Movie Shaft: The Killing and trailers for all three films.

This follows last month’s UK Blu-Ray and 4K release of Tim Story’s Shaft (2019).
