There’s a bunch more great new release news today, so here goes...

First up, our friends at The Criterion Collection have announced their July slate of releases, and I’m thrilled to say that they include Andrei Tarkovsky’s Russian sci-fi film Stalker (Cat #888 – Blu-ray and DVD) on 7/18! Also coming are Robert Bresson’s L’argent (Cat #886 – Blu-ray, DVD, and Hulu Plus) and Roberto Rossellini’s War Trilogy (Cat #500 – Blu-ray and DVD – includes Rome Open City, Paisan, and Germany Year Zero) on 7/11, as well as Albert Brooks’ 1985 satire Lost in America (Cat #887 – Blu-ray and DVD) on 7/25. We’ll take all the classic Russian cinema on Blu-ray I can get, science fiction especially, and the more the merrier. You can pre-order them all by clicking on the cover artwork at the bottom of this post (Stalker is pictured at left). [Read on here…]

Heads-up re #StarWars: It appears the new Last Jedi #4K (w/score-only track, Meet the Porgs, no Dolby Vision) is only in the Skywalker Saga box for now. Disney says it IS coming separately (Solo too) in the new packaging—just not tomorrow. When I have the date, I'll let you know.
