Also here at the site today, we’ve posted the weekly update of our Release Dates & Artwork, with all the latest Blu-ray, DVD, and 4K Ultra HD cover artwork and Amazon.com pre-order links. As always, whenever you order literally anything from Amazon after clicking through one of our links, you’re helping to support our work here and we really appreciate it enormously.
By the way, it’s come to our attention that the Release Dates & Artwork section hasn’t been picking up every title available on Amazon each week, and we’re working to fix that. So thanks for your patience.
Meanwhile today, the big news is that our friends at The Criterion Collection have just announced their September slate of Blu-ray and DVD titles, which is set to include Marco Bellocchio’s Fists in the Pocket (Spine #333 – Blu-ray and DVD) on 9/3, Ritwik Gahtak’s The Cloud-Capped Star (Spine #993 – Blu-ray and DVD) on 9/10, Ernst Lubitsch’s Cluny Brown (Spine #997 – Blu-ray and DVD) and John Waters’ Polyester (Spine #995 – Blu-ray and DVD) on 9/17, and Charlie Chaplin’s The Circus (Spine #996 – Blu-ray and DVD) and Bill Forsyth’s Local Hero (Spine #994 – Blu-ray and DVD) on 9/24. You can read more on the specs and features of each here.
And now the speculation begins... what will be Criterion’s 1000th title? Could it maybe... just maybe... include their first 4K Ultra HD? We’ll see...
