Kon Ichikawa's film being released in a dual format edition on March 26, from a new 4K restoration.

What about the other titles in the Japanese box set: Conflagration and Younger Brother?

Very happy to get more Ichikawa on UK Blu-ray (finally). Can get rid of my DVD copy of this now!

Agreed that somebody should release the other two Ichikawa titles from the Kadokawa box set. Maybe Eureka or Arrow will be up to the challenge, assuming BFI aren't? I'd also like to see upgrades of MoC's Alone Across the Pacific and Kokoro (though not sure they've been restored yet). Fires on the Plain would obviously be great too...again, Arrow perhaps?

Anyway, after BFI told me they weren't planning any Japanese upgrades, this comes as a nice surprise. Let's see if they do the same for Teshigahara's Woman of the Dunes, Honda's Godzilla or any of their remaining Kurosawa titles before their rights expire and Criterion inevitably port their own editions over here.

Have been curious about An Actor’s Revenge as well when it was mentioned in this thread.
