Interview with Nick Redman at Blu-ray Authority, where he reveals a couple of Japanese films that Twilight Time will release: The Yellow Handkerchief (1977) and The Emperor in August (2015).

He also says the following: "We had all of the MGM/UA Woody’s, minus the four they released, and a couple of the Sony’s coming down the line."

The Sony owned Allen titles not yet released on Blu-ray in the US are: Husbands and Wives (1992), Manhattan Murder Mystery (1993), and Sweet and Lowdown (1999).

This also means they plan to release the remaining MGM titles: Bananas (1971), September (1987), and Alice (1990)

I wonder how many supplements he is going to try and sneak on to the releases.

Any chance Allen's stranglehold on his releases wouldn't apply for UK releases from Indicator (assuming they're with Sony there too)?

Kind of a bummer if Arrow's exclusion from Sony licenses would prevent them from doing another set with the Miramax titles too.

No chance given the Arrow precedent.

I'm certain Allen is on top of his worldwide holdings and their content

I look forward to a Sweet and Lowdown release. It's been years since I've seen that film and I remember liking it back then.

Twilight Time lost the rights to Panic Room. I think we all know what label it's heading to now...

How did they pick that up only to let the rights lapse? I feel that would have been a quick sell out one for them.

Sony apparently withdrew the rights at Fincher's behest

Here's what they said on FB:
Twilight Time Movies We did [have Panic Room], but it maybe a title we trade back to Sony as really and truly they should do it themselves.

Twilight Time Movies - we appreciate your comments, but this is a decision that will be taken out of our hands---Mr Fincher is involved, and he will likely request that Sony do as much as possible for the title -- we can only cross our fingers and hope for the best!

Just a heads-up there are approximately 50 copies remaining of Truffaut's classic, THE STORY OF ADELE H (1975) - only at http://www.screenarchives.com" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; and still at the special price of $9.95 while stocks last...

Time to start asking Criterion to release it. I haven't emailed Criterion like that in over a decade but will do it for this film, which I love but still avoided the TT release, confident it'll get a better Blu-ray from someone, possibly across the pond.

According to IMDB, "Stars: Adolf Hitler, Karl Malden, Eddie Muller"

This is the episode of A&E's Biography that summed up by leaving us with this moving last word from Widmark.

Are we sure they haven't already closed up shop? What a collection of all-around zero effort releases in all arenas

Allen's famously generous deal with UA and Orion grants him absolute authority over every aspect of every release of his films from those catalogues. When Arrow put together their first Woody Allen box, they didn't initially know if he'd approve the inclusion of a big book, and his office took some time to confirm their acceptance - but it was made very clear that nothing was to be included on the discs apart from the trailer.

Indicator put together a more substantial package for The Front, but that's because it's not un film de Woody Allen and so the usual contractual strictures didn't apply. Had they handled the films that Arrow put out, they'd have had to conform to exactly the same rules.
