Appaloosa - New Release, Ships in 24 Hours

From the Publisher - In Marshal Virgil Cole and deputy Everett Hitch's line of work, you shoot quick, you shoot clean, and you reload straightaway. No remorse. No looking back. No feelings. Feelings get you killed. Paired as rivals in "A History Of Violence", Ed Harris (who also directs, produces and co-scripts) and Viggo Mortensen stand together as longtime friends and for-hire peacekeepers Cole and Hitch in this character-driven, bullet-hard Western based on Robert B. Parkers novel. As the woman who arrives in town with only a dollar and a keen sense of survival, Renee Zellweger adds feelings - those things that get you killed - to a quest to bring murderer Randall Bragg (Jeremy Irons) to justice. Blood will spill in the town called "Appaloosa".

Blu-Ray Features - English Dolby TrueHD 5.1 Audio; Corral Of 4 Insightful Featurettes: "Bringing The Characters Of 'Appaloosa' To Life"; "Historic Accuracy Of 'Appaloosa'"; "The Town Of 'Appaloosa'"; "Dean Semler's Return To The Western", Audio Commentary, Behind The Scenes Featurette, Deleted Scenes, Director Commentary, Dual Layer.

Shattered by circumstances beyond his control, Henry Poole (Wilson) settles in to suburban isolation, but his well-meaning busybody neighbor (Academy Award(R) Nominee Adriana Barraza of "Babel"), destroys his exile when she discovers a mysterious stain on Henry's stucco wall that is seen to have miraculous powers.

With the help of the beautiful young divorcee next door (Radha Mitchell of "Finding Neverland"), and her daughter Millie (Morgan Lily), Henry finds himself gradually drawn back towards life as he realizes his plan to live out his days in quiet desperation is going to be much harder than he ever imagined.

General Updates

Japan Returning from Holiday
Most of our vendors in Japan are still on their New Year's holiday for another day but a few returned last night for some administrative tasks as they get back to regular business ops. There are no new Japanese software imports or USA releases scheduled for this week.
Melty Blood Actress Again Eprom Revision
The MBAA Rom A-Version went out of location test about 2 weeks ago and our shipments are on the way. Based on the waybill from our coin-op supplier, the following items are included in each update kit:

» Instruction Sheet for Eprom add (Japanese only)
» 2 Stickers for Rev-A (So your patrons know you're up to date)
» IC M27C322-100 Melty Blood AA Eprom

To minimize downtime, Ecole shipped an eprom kit which operators can swap with the already-installed factory eprom. If you purchased MBAA from NCS, we'll send you an email notification once they arrive in the next day or two. Please note that there is no charge for the eprom kit but we ask that you cover the shipping costs for the kit from Japan and the shipping from NCS. Due to the amount of upgrade kits, it made more sense to ship them to one central location and then distribute them from our premises in New York rather than incurring multiple express shipping charges.
