But Il mercenario is one which deserves a HD upgrade. The DVD was good, but not great. And then it at least proves that Il mercenario has some selling potential. Better so then a oop title which then becomes overly expensive.
For the release strategy of Koch or Explosive Media.
The problem is as ever there is no real release strategy possible. Of course they would like to bring the best Spags, but then I know that there are a lot of titles which are not possible that easy:
a: the rights are too expensive
b: another label has the rights, does not much with them, but does not sell them either
c: bootleg releases slim the chance to make money with certain SWs
d: some studios like Warner sit on their rights, but never sell them
e: no proper master is available
f: no German dub exists, or the dub is lost or partly destroyed
So they release what they can get, or what is possible from the Spags they can get.
