Not on Region A Blu-ray
CineSavant Revival Screening Review

This one really needs a Region A release, with English subtitles! It’s largely unavailable, especially the original Japanese version. The third Ishiro Honda / Eiji Tsuburaya outer space action epic is probably the best Toho science fiction feature ever, an Astral Collision tale in which the drama and characters are as compelling as the special effects. Nothing can stop a colossal planetoid heading toward Earth, but science comes to the rescue with the biggest construction job ever undertaken by mankind. The fine screenplay generates thrills, suspense and human warmth. It also takes place in the far, far future: 1980. with RyĆ“ Ikebe, Yumi Shirakawa, Akira Kubo, Kumi Mizuno, Akihiko Hirata, Kenji Sahara, Jun Tazaki, Ken Uehara and Takashi Shimura. Not on legit Disc.
