PUNCH Two-Disc S.E.: New Street Date: March 12, 2013; Available at Selected Retailers Feb. 19, 2013

A quick update re: our next title! Our distribution partners had the opportunity to place Punch at additional retailers... if we rescheduled our release to the later date of March 12. The discs are ready to go, but we didn't want to delay getting them out the awesome fans and stores who had planned for the original February 19 street date. As a result, Punch has a new "official" date of March 12, 2013, but some stores that already have the two-disc set on hand are offering and shipping it now. We apologize for any confusion this may cause, but we also can't wait to hear what you think about this film!
