UPDATED: Ronin Special Edition Blu-Ray Detailed

UPDATED:  A new piece of artwork has been released for this one.  You can check out the Blu-Ray cover below, which has a nice retro look to it.  It wouldn’t look out of place at all as an old VHS cover.  This movie will be released at the end of the month.
