Kino Insider posted at the Blu-ray.com forums that the summer UHD (which was to be Valkyrie) has been scrapped.

That's awesome but I'm still a little sad Sullivan's Travels evidently didn't sell well enough to justify a full Arrow Sturges box

Me too, esp since it’d prob be the only way we’d ever see the Great Moment get upgraded. I wonder if Criterion has Hail the Conquering Hero?

Just bought the DVD for the 40s decade project, so, you know, y'all welcome.

The cynic in me thinks Criterion didn't pick up Hail the Conquering Hero.

We asked for Hail the Conquering Hero and it was not available. It could be with Criterion, Arrow, TCM, who knows.

We've been trying to get all the Universal Sturges since our first deal with Universal back in the early 2000s.

If a restoration exists his Harold Lloyd movie would be much appreciated though.

Any chance of Alphaville having Germany Year 90 Nine Zero as an extra?

Re: Lost Highway

Film historian Tim Lucas had this to say:
Dear Folks, I’ve been given clearance by Kino Lorber’s Frank Tarzi to make the following known at this time...

If you go to the website of Diabolik DVD, you’ll see they are soliciting pre-orders for Kino Lorber’s upcoming Blu-ray of David Lynch’s LOST HIGHWAY. Their description of its extras includes an hour-long interview with David Lynch, an exclusive booklet essay by Nick Pinkerton, and a NEW audio commentary by Tim Lucas.

This was the exciting hush-hush project I mentioned here a month or so ago. The commentary was commissioned by KL and I was honored, excited, and intimidated to script and record the FIRST-EVER audio commentary for a David Lynch film on disc.

I was extremely proud of the result, which - despite my initial intimidation - flowed out of me like water. Bret Wood, my disc producer, told me the commentary was terrific. At the time, Universal seemed to have no problem with this, but once the work was done (and paid for, I hasten to note), I’m told they checked their contract and discovered that neither they nor their sub-licensers were allowed to include ANY extras with the release, in keeping with the wishes of Mr. Lynch.

Therefore, I regret to inform you that Kino Lorber’s LOST HIGHWAY Blu-ray will feature NO extras other than a trailer. It’s the way David Lynch wants it. Of course, I’m disappointed that my and Nick’s work won’t be along for the ride - but I’m presently considering other ways of making my commentary available, perhaps in expanded book form.

I hope this news won’t spoil anyone’s interest in the disc, which I can tell you is a magnificent HD transfer of a mind-bending film.

Very sloppy work or rather lack of it on Universal's behalf. They should have checked this before Kino paid out to Mssrs Lucas and Pinkerton. In theory, Kino could licence the chapter on Lost Highway from Chris Rodley's book Lynch on Lynch (seeing as respective interviews for Eraserhead and FWWM made it onto the Criterion releases of those, not sure about Blue Velvet?) but whether they'd want to make more expenditures now after Universal falling asleep on this is another question.

Lucas says it's "a magnificent HD transfer". Wonder what he's watched as it can't be the old master.

Anyone following Lynch's approach to home video releases over the past two decades should have known that he does not allow audio commentaries. Given that this one would have been the "FIRST-EVER", it's astonishing that no one sought Lynch's pre-approval. At the same time, Lynch has been fairly generous with interviews and behind-the-scenes supplements, so it's a little surprising that no extras will appear on the release. Was that hour-long interview with Lynch actually recorded? If so, for what purpose?

Thomas Crown Affair from Kino is a MAJOR upgrade. Kind of astonished how bad the MGM looks.
