Release

Red Scorpion had a world premiere at the 1988 MIFED film market, and was released theatrically in Germany and Japan in January 1989, then domestically USA on April 21, 1989. The movie was released theatrically worldwide except in the United Kingdom (where it went “direct to video” in January 1990).

Months later, Sharpiro-Glickenhaus Entertainment Home Video released the movie on videocassette and laserdisc. In 1993, a budget tape of the film was released by Starmaker. The movie has had at least two Region 1 DVD releases. The first DVD was released in 1998 by Simitar and the second DVD was released in 2002 by 20th Century Fox. In 2005, Tango Entertainment released a UMD of the film for the Sony PlayStation Portable. The two DVDs are now discontinued. On November 5, 2010, Don May Jr. of Synapse Films told Fangoria of his plans for a 2011 Blu-ray release. It will have new 2K scan. He also revealed that a longer cut has been recently found in a vault. “We’re going to search the vaults high and low for the most complete version and the original negative material. It may take a lot of research to find the additional footage on film, but we’re up to the challenge. Tom Savini may have some behind-the-scenes video, and if so, it’ll be fun to showcase some of that stuff. We’ll have extras, but it’s early yet, so we have to wait and see what we can come up with.”

The film was directed by Joseph Zito and represents his first authorial effort half a decade after the release of the Chuck Norris vehicles Missing in Action and Invasion U.S.A..
