Just a very quick update for you today...

The big news is that Criterion has just announced their May Blu-ray and DVD slate, set to include Jean-Luc Godard’s Band of Outsiders (Cat #174 - BD - due 5/7), Delmer Daves’ 3:10 to Yuma (Cat #657 - BD and DVD - due 5/14) and Jubal (Cat #656 - BD and DVD - also due 5/14), Haskell Wexler’s Medium Cool (cat #658 - BD and DVD - due 5/21) and Mike Leigh’s Life is Sweet (Cat #659 - BD and DVD - due 5/28).  Nice to see some classic westerns get the spiff treatment from Criterion!

Also today, Shout! Factory has just set K9: The Complete Series for DVD releas on 5/7.  The series is based on the popular character from the BBC’s Doctor Who.

Shout! is also releasing a Dirty Mary Crazy Larry/Race with the Devil Blu-ray Double Feature on 5/28.

And Disney has just set Hayao Miyazaki’s animated Howl’s Moving Castle for release as a Blu-ray DVD Combo on 5/21.

Here’s BD cover artwork for a couple of the titles mentioned above (note that the Criterion titles aren’t available for pre-order yet but Howl is)...

How's Moving Castle (Blu-ray Disc)    3:10 to Yuma (Criterion Blu-ray Disc)    Jubal (Criterion Blu-ray Disc)

And that’s it! Hope you all have a great weekend.
