Billy Jack is Coming Back!

Showtime in the U.S. (and Astral in Canada) are about to begin the first airings of the Billy Jack movies in almost a decade. We’re very excited to have the films back in ‘circulation’. In addition, it’s the first time any of the films other than ‘Billy Jack’ will be seen in HD. It’s taken a lot of work, but we thank you Showtime!
